The HR Avatar Teller - Universal Banker test provides a whole-person evaluation by measuring job-relevant cognitive ability, personality, knowledge, skills, and relevant behavioral history. Each component provides important data for hiring decisions. Cognitive ability has been linked to overall job performance in most jobs and correlates with a candidate's ability to learn new skills and to solve complex problems. Personality characteristics determine how well the candidate will fit-in with a corporate culture. Knowledge and skills indicate how much training will be needed before a new employee becomes productive. Finally, relevant behavioral history detects counter-productive behaviors that can impact job performance. The Bank Teller / Universal Banker test includes an animated work simulation in which candidates interact with customers to process transactions and have the opportunity to recognize opportunities for expanding the bank-customer relationship and recommend appropriate next-steps. They also interact with coworkers and supervisors in a job-related context. Post-test surveys indicate more than 80% of test takers find the assessment to be challenging, job-related, and highly engaging. This test also contains an automatically-scored essay component.
