Pre-hiring Assessments explained:

Pre-hiring assessments are an objective, standardized way of gathering data on candidates prior to the hiring decision. All professionally developed, well-validated assessments have one thing in common: they are an efficient and reliable means of gaining insights into the capabilities and traits of prospective employees. Depending on the type of test being used, pre-hiring assessments can provide relevant information on a job applicant’s ability to perform in the workplace. Pre-hiring assessments have become increasingly popular in recent years as a way to filter and manage large applicant pools. The Internet has made it easier than ever for job seekers to apply for jobs– one study estimates that, on average, a whopping 250 resumes are submitted for every corporate job opening. Some job-seekers, known as “resume spammers,” distribute their resumes across the web in blasts, with little regard to their required qualifications or job fitment. With applicants spending just an average of 76 seconds reading each job description, it is not surprising that recruiters report that over 50% of job applicants do not meet the basic qualifications of the job. Also, most hiring managers don’t have the bandwidth to review every candidate’s application in greater detail, with recruiters reportedly spending an average of just 6.25 seconds reading each resume. In such scenarios, pre-hiring assessments can provide tremendous value for companies seeking to find the right fit. By adding these assessments to the candidate selection process, organisations of all sizes can get a better handle on the vast pool of candidates applying for available positions. And while technology may be responsible for the increase in applications, it also provides an answer, by making it much simpler to integrate pre-employment assessment into the hiring process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7AS Framework works on the key principles of Statistical Scoring through Quantification of responses.
It is based on HR Analytics framework and allows long-term engagement and understanding of
workforce behavior using Analytics.
While the PexiScore TalenTool measures and scores all attributes on a statistical model, the same in the
report is visually represented for ease of understanding with respect to the JD criteria as determined by
Hiring Manager.
The PexiScore is a score range of a minimum of 300 and a maximum of 800. A score of 600 and above
will reflect a very high match of the candidate on Job Fitment.
The 4 large segments of measurement are a) Job to JD Match, b) Cognitive Ability Assessment, c)
Functional Skills Assessment, d) Work Behavior Assessment
The Work Behavior (psychometric) Assessment is further classified into 4 sections;
1. Core Values Assessment
2. Motivation Assessment
3. Competency Assessment
4. Leadership Assessment

The scores are graded into five segments; Below Average, Average, Above Average, Good, Excellent
1. Scale ranges; The scale ranges from 0-100% with a 20 point at every scale.
2. The graphs are bars that will show up in the following colour format; check Page 4.
Why PexiScore for hiring?
1.  A scoring model for hiring that has been conceived to ensure talent is quantified.
2. It enables scoring an individual irrespective of industry and experience
3. The model algorithm ensures individual is measured for his capability through a Score that can lead
to clear, measurable outcomes in hiring.
4. It is a first level shortlisting tool; HR manager still retains judgment on employability.
5. A scoring model enables hiring costs are lowered; mis-hires and losses due to wrong job fitment are
lowered significantly.
6. The output is provided as a Score that is purely in respect to the role; actual potential score could be
higher or lower based on detailed Candidate that is also available for detailed appraisal.

PexiScore Assessments: When and why

Once an organization has chosen assessments to administer for an open position, it will need to decide at what
stage of the hiring process to assess applicants. There may be many factors that go into this decision, but it is
generally recommended to assess applicants at the first stage of elimination. Using assessments early in the
hiring process is an efficient and reliable way to gather objective data on candidates before deciding which
candidates should move on to the next step in the process. Requiring applicants to take tests through a link
included in a job posting, for example, will help Hiring Managers filter through large applicant pools, and ensure
that everyone who is moving through the hiring funnel meets the basic standards for the job. This helps
streamline the hiring process, saving a great deal of time that would have been spent reading resumes from
unqualified applicants.
