Psychometric tests help measure candidates’ suitability for a role based on the personality characteristics and cognitive abilities required to perform the role.
These assessments help employers accurately gauge the skill level of the candidates to successfully perform a certain job.
These tests evaluate applicants’ behavioral traits to help predict their future performance and identify candidates who are most likely to succeed.
High performing organizations constantly evaluate and improve their candidate evaluation systems by paying attention to predictor variables, outcome variables, and the correlations between the two. Psychometric tests should be subject to the same rigorous testing and validation as the candidates they are being utilized to assess. When hiring managers and HR utilize the right methodology to select and retain the right psychometric tests, they can significantly raise the probability of selecting and retaining the right talent, too.
