Psymetrics’ Build Your Own feature allows you to “mix and match” the individual job traits (listed below) to meet the specific needs of any job.
One of the toughest aspects of implementing a testing program is finding a test or series of tests that meet a company’s specific needs. Each organization has its own set of critical functions and the jobs within them require specific knowledge, skills and abilities. In many cases companies also have time constraints with respect to the amount of time an applicant will have to take the test(s). Many test publishers have pre-assembled test batteries that can address the majority of an organization’s assessment needs, however, there are also many instances where a perfect fit between job requirements, testing content and time limitations is not available. The alternative is an expensive proposal from the test publisher to develop a customized test from scratch.
With the PsyMetrics Elite Profiling System (EPS), organizations have the option of implementing any of the EPS “pre-built tests” that have been designed to assess the cognitive and personality characteristics associated with the most common jobs, or they can “mix and match” from a comprehensive library of short cognitive, personality, skills and/or interest scales to create a truly customized solution within their required testing time frame.
As the diagram below shows, you can “mix and match” the individual EPS scales to meet the specific needs of most any job (in this example the job is a sales job). This “custom” approach to building a test battery ensures organizations are only testing for those cognitive abilities, personality characteristics, skills and/or interests that are relevant to the job, therefore increasing validity while at the same time reducing test administration time significantly.
