Basic Cognitive & Behavioral Assessment - Entry Level Version

The HR Avatar Basic Cognitive & Behavioral Assessment - Entry Level Version is a 20-minute assessment specifically designed for broad applicability across a wide variety of entry-level or non-exempt labor categories that need to be assessed quickly with an emphasis on whether candidates are likely to reliably show up to work and adequately perform. The test provides a whole-person evaluation by measuring job-relevant cognitive ability and relevant behavioral history. Cognitive ability has been linked to overall job performance in most jobs and correlates with a candidate's ability to successfully complete training, solve job-related problems, work efficiently, avoid mistakes, work safely, learn new work-related processes and identify ways to improve the business. The behavioral history portion of the test asks the candidates questions about their prior work behaviors that, if repeated, could present as a performance, attendance or turnover risk. For instance, candidates that report being reprimanded on the job, calling in sick when they are not, or showing up to work late, will score lower. Both positive indicators and potential detractors are evaluated.

The Basic Cognitive & Behavioral Assessment - Entry Level Version test includes a work simulation in which candidates interact with animated Avatars to help customers, collaborate with colleagues and respond to requests from supervisors in a job-related context. Test completion rate for HR Avatar tests is substantially higher than industry average and post-test surveys indicate the majority of candidates react favorably to these simulations.

The specific attributes measured include:

Cognitive Ability
  • Analytical Thinking
  • Attention to Detail
  Behavioral History
  • History Survey - Performance
  • History Survey - Tenure

Following completion, the test produces a Candidate Selection Report that includes an overall score and detailed scores for each attribute. The overall score weighs each of the factors based on research and analysis from the U.S. Government's Occupational Information Network (O*Net). O*Net represents over a decade of dedicated research evaluating the relative importance of various factors that lead to success in almost 1,000 different job roles.

The Candidate Selection Report also provides expert interview questions that help you probe critical or low-scoring areas, along with a guide for noting your evaluation of the candidate's responses. Consistent use of an interview guide is an important part of gaining better candidate insights and making better hiring decisions.
