Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

The assessment has been designed on the ‘semantic differential’ format, which requires candidates to consider their preferences and choose between two " equally desirable" statements. The assessment also delivers ‘instructional warnings,’ where candidates are informed that distorted or fake responses will invalidate the assessment. The assessment tool can also identify specific response patterns that may indicate fake responses.

We have taken all necessary steps to reduce the possibility of test takers trying to present themselves in a socially desirable manner. For example, the test follows a ‘semantic differential’ format, which makes it hard to ‘guess’ the appropriate response. Additionally, the items are presented in a format that requires one to consciously think about one's preferences and then choose a more ‘desirable’ statement. The tool also identifies specific patterns of the responses and can indicate if candidates attempt to respond dishonestly.

It is possible to do so for different job roles for your organization. We follow a scientifically valid benchmarking process. Please write to us and we would be glad to assist.
