Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Financial Analyst Aptitude Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

Financial Analyst Online Aptitude Test Vanlige spørsmål

Kan jeg kombinere flere ferdigheter til en tilpasset vurdering?

Ja absolutt. Tilpassede vurderinger er satt opp basert på stillingsbeskrivelsen din, og vil inneholde spørsmål om alle må-ha ferdigheter du spesifiserer.

Har du noen anti-juksende eller proktoreringsfunksjoner på plass?

Vi har følgende anti-juksede funksjoner på plass:

  • Ikke-googlable spørsmål
  • IP Proctoring
  • Nettproctoring
  • Webcam Proctoring
  • Deteksjon av plagiering
  • Sikker nettleser

Les mer om Proctoring -funksjonene.

Hvordan tolker jeg testresultater?

Den viktigste tingen å huske på er at en vurdering er et eliminasjonsverktøy, ikke et seleksjonsverktøy. En ferdighetsvurdering er optimalisert for å hjelpe deg med å eliminere kandidater som ikke er teknisk kvalifisert for rollen, det er ikke optimalisert for å hjelpe deg med å finne den beste kandidaten for rollen. Så den ideelle måten å bruke en vurdering på er å bestemme en terskelpoeng (vanligvis 55%, vi hjelper deg med å benchmark) og invitere alle kandidater som scorer over terskelen for de neste rundene med intervjuet.

Hvilken opplevelsesnivå kan jeg bruke denne testen til?

Hver ADAFACE -vurdering er tilpasset din stillingsbeskrivelse/ ideell kandidatperson (våre fageksperter vil velge de riktige spørsmålene for din vurdering fra vårt bibliotek med 10000+ spørsmål). Denne vurderingen kan tilpasses for ethvert opplevelsesnivå.

Får hver kandidat de samme spørsmålene?

Ja, det gjør det mye lettere for deg å sammenligne kandidater. Alternativer for MCQ -spørsmål og rekkefølgen på spørsmål er randomisert. Vi har anti-juksing/proctoring funksjoner på plass. I vår bedriftsplan har vi også muligheten til å lage flere versjoner av den samme vurderingen med spørsmål med lignende vanskelighetsnivåer.

Jeg er en kandidat. Kan jeg prøve en praksisprøve?

Nei. Dessverre støtter vi ikke praksisprøver for øyeblikket. Du kan imidlertid bruke eksemplet spørsmål for praksis.

Hva koster ved å bruke denne testen?

Du kan sjekke ut prisplanene våre.

Kan jeg få en gratis prøveperiode?

Ja, du kan registrere deg gratis og forhåndsvise denne testen.

Jeg flyttet nettopp til en betalt plan. Hvordan kan jeg be om en tilpasset vurdering?
