Bad hiring decisions are the most expensive mistake one can make, bad hires cost $240,000 in expenses related to hiring, compensation and retention. Zappos CEO has estimated bad hiring decisions to have cost Zappos well over $100 million.

Organizations across the globe are turning to pre-employment testing tools to eliminate potential bad hires early on in the hiring process.

80% of Fortune 500 companies use pre-employment tests as part of their hiring process.


What is pre-employment testing?

Resumes are not a reliable indicator of a candidate's skill, and interviewing every candidates is not a feasible option for most companies. At a time when 87% employers believe that candidates misrepresent themselves on resumes, it is important for employers to ensure that they capture accurate information about a candidate's skillset using tools like pre-employment tests.

Pre-employment assessment tests are a range of tools that recruiters use to screen their candidates and surface the best matches.

Using a pre-employment assessment test helps companies gather objective data about the skillset of the candidate pool, and take data backed decisions on which candidates to invite for in-person interviews.  Such tools are of different types, and can test candidates on the strength of their technical knowledge, personality, soft skills, culture fit etc.

Which pre-employment testing solution should I be using?

There is a very wide range of pre-employment testing tools available on the market, that you can pick from depending on your use case.

To make it easier, we've listed 52 of the best recruitment assessment tools on the market that you can consider, to streamline your hiring process in 2020.

Here is a list of the tools covered in this post:

When should you use an assessment tool?

Usually companies are on the market for a pre-employment assessment tool for 1 of 3 reasons:

  1. You are already using an assessment solution, and it doesn't work for you for 1 of 2 reasons:
    1. Your hiring managers are not happy with the quality of candidates who come in for interviews, after clearing the test (the test might not be relevant)
    2. You are seeing low candidate test completion rates (lower than 75%)
  2. You have never used an assessment solution before, but as you begin to scale the company you're seeing candidates volumes you cannot handle, and your hiring managers are spending too much time talking to under-qualified candidates.
  3. You're hiring for a certain role for the first time, and don't have in-house skills to interview for that role.

How to pick the best pre-employment assessment tool for your use case?

Picking the right assessment tool begins with understanding your requirements clearly. Why do you need an assessment solution? What type of roles are you hiring for?

When picking a pre-employment assessment tool, these are the 3 main things you want to keep in mind:

  1. Relevance of test
    Ideally you want to make sure that your skills assessment test can be used to predict job performance. Since it can take over a year for a company to figure out, the best way to do this is to check the correlation between candidate assessment performance and interview performance. When you are trialing an assessment tool, you could interview all candidates irrespective of their performance on the test. This is a great way to figure out if the tool meets your needs, and also help you figure out the cut off score you should use on the test.
  2. Candidate test completion rates
    It's a candidate driven market, so it is a good idea to track your testing completion rates to assess when and where candidates drop off. This will also help you understand the perception of that particular tool among candidates. By tracking completion rates, you can also iterate your hiring process and improve it to make your efforts towards pre-employment testing even more useful over time. If a significant percentage of your candidates are refusing to complete the assessment, it might be worth considering to switch tools and move to a more candidate-friendly tool. You should also ask your candidates about their experience with the tool when they come in for in-person interviews.
  3. Align with your brand
    The pre-employment testing tool will be one of the first touch points you have with your candidates, depending on where you place it in your hiring process. You want to make sure that it is reflective of your talent brand. For e.g. if you are a travel tech startup using AI/ ML to provide the best travel experiences, an age old testing solution with an outdated UI or unfriendly messaging might not create the first impression you're looking for. A lot of tools on the market also offer customization options, that you might want to leverage, to maintain branding consistency.

Here are some of the other things you want to keep in mind while picking a skills assessment solution:

  1. Range of assessment options
    Some pre-employment tests are meant for only a particular category of roles or skills. Make sure the tool you are considering can screen for all skills you're hiring for.
  2. Integrations
    If you already have an ATS (Applicant Tracking System) in place at your organization, you might want to consider the skills assessment tools that integrate with your ATS, or you could ask them if they would be willing to integrate.
  3. Pricing/ free trial
    Skills assessment tools come in various pricing options: monthly/ quarterly or annual subscriptions, as well as pay per test or pay per role. Depending on your hiring needs for the year, you can figure out which options would be the most economical for your organization. You might also want to check if they offer a free trial for you to test it out before making any commitments.
  4. Customization
    Depending on your requirements, you might be looking for custom assessments. Make sure the tool you are considering offers customized assessments set by experts. You might also want to check if the tool allows you to create your questions/ tests.
  5. Proctoring
    Advanced tools have several anti-cheating features in place like window proctoring and webcam proctoring. With window proctoring, a tool monitors candidate tab and window switching activities so that you get to know when the candidate switched focus during the assessment (opening another window to google the question for e.g.). With webcam proctoring, you can track a candidate's test progress by capturing images of the candidate during the test. Make sure the tool you are considering has all advanced proctoring features in place.
  6. Enterprise readiness; best-in class onboarding and customer support
    If you are an enterprise customer, you might want to ensure that the vendor you're considering has enterprise features in place (GDPR compliance, white-labelling, custom branding etc), and can onboard a company of your size and stature.
