About the test

The HR Avatar Administrative Assistant - Entry Level Pre-Employment Assessment 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 Administrative Assistant - Entry Level test includes an animated work simulation in which candidates meet customers, colleagues and supervisors in a job-related context. Post-test surveys indicate the majority of candidates react favorably to these simulations.

The specific attributes measured include:

Cognitive Ability
  • Attention to Detail
  Knowledge and Skills
  • Data Entry
Personality
  • Adaptable
  • Competitive
  • Corporate Citizenship
  • Develops Relationships
  • Enjoys Problem-Solving
  • Exhibits a Positive Work Attitude
  • Needs Structure
  • Seeks Perfection
  Behavioral History
  • History Survey - Performance
  • History Survey - Tenure

Following completion, the test produces a Test Results and Interview Guide 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) for jobs related to the job context being utilized. 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 Test Results and Interview Guide 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.
