Bespoke assessment tools and assessment tests designed from scratch or adapted from sales assessments. Suitable for candidate selection, staff appraisals, training needs analysis, career development, and motivational purposes.
Rapid Development and Deployment of Bespoke Assessment Tools
Our standard sales and business assessment tools provide examples. They are based on assessment tests and questionnaires that we have developed for specific assignments and use a standard framework that supports low cost development and rapid deployment of bespoke solutions.
Using one of our existing assessments as a base for a new assessment design facilitates fast creation of new tools.
Bespoke assessment tools and assessment tests can be presented on a white label website, or one that is branded to match customer requirements. Fees can be based on actual usage or a flat monthly charge.
Competence Assessment v Psychometric Tests
Psychometric assessments tools are developed by psychologists and depend on extensive testing. Results need to be validated for large numbers of people. Reliability is developed over a long period of time. Consequently, bespoke psychometric assessments can't be easily modified or adapted. Accuracy is based on sample validation and requires an expert to validate accuracy for individuals if challenged.
Competence Assessments are built around a competence or 'best practice' model. They pose direct questions about the specific abilities. They are easy to create from established competency models or identified best practice and the skill, knowledge, or practice being examined is easy to verify by managers.
Any depth of ability can be examined by competence based questionnaires. They can consist of a few basic verification questions, or dozens of conformance statements that require participants to score and verify their own abilities.
While psychometric tools set out to analyse the subject regardless of motivation and therefore are designed to be difficult to fool yet the vast majority of participants make no attempt to second guess either psychometric or competence assessments. Those who are motivated to try and cheat are just as easily identified in both cases.
Competence assessments are easy to review, grade or validate using standard templates developed for the purpose so managers or other in-house staff can verify results just as easily as third party professionals.
