Assessments are pre-made questionnaires, written and designed by assessment companies and vendors, that will help you to better assess your candidates. They are designed to test specific characteristics of your candidates.
For example, they can determine the level of respect for authority your candidate has, is he/she able to work well with others (in a team) or is he/she better working alone, his/her level of organization skills, etc.
In TalentLyft, you can order assessments and receive their results, all in one place.
Similarly, like Scorecards, they are used to better optimize and structure your hiring process. Keeping the interviews structured, ensures that answers can be reliably aggregated and can be used to compare one candidate to another.
To add an assessment to a stage, in the main Track window, click on the more information icon for that job and select the Edit option.
Click on the third step of your Job creation/edit process, Evaluation plan, and select the stage that you wish to add an assessment to, by clicking anywhere on that row.
To add a new assessment, click on the Assessment icon after that on the Add icon.
The add assessments window will open. Here you can search assessments by name, using the Search option.
You can also filter assessments by Language or by Vendor. Currently, we have assessments in Croatian, English, and German. After you have selected your assessment to be added to the selected stage, click on the Add button.
NOTE: Each assessment can be added once to a hiring pipeline, to only one stage.
When the assessment is added, it will be visible on the assessment part of that stage.
To delete an assessment, click on the trash bin icon, next to the name.
NOTE: When you add an assessment to a stage, you will not be charged for it.
When a candidate reaches the stage in a hiring pipeline that has an assessment added to it, the Order assessment option will appear in the main application window.
Clicking on the icon will open the order window. Here you can tick the checkbox next to the assessment you want to order and click Order. You can see the price of that assessment (displayed in credits) and the total number of credits you have available.
The candidate will receive an email, containing the link to the vendors page and detailed instructions on how to access the assessment.
If the candidate doesn’t have a valid email address or if a vendor rejects the order, you will receive the notification that the assessment couldn’t be ordered and your credits will be refunded for that order.
After the candidate has finished the assessment, the results will be available on his/her activity feed, with an option to download the Assessment report.
NOTE: You can edit your notification settings to receive notifications when the assessment results are submitted (you will also receive a notification if an assessment is rejected and could not be sent to a candidate).
