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.

The data obtained through across industries and across verticals of various types of organizations is updated in the Mettl database periodically. Utmost care is taken such that the newly added data gets incorporated periodically while preparing the reports.
