Assessments scores are a percentage based on responses a candidate gives to the assessments at the end of their job application. Each question (except for textboxes and multiline textboxes) can be assigned a score.
When a candidate gives favorable answers, they are given points. This is very similar to taking an exam in school.
- Question: How many years of experience do you have?
- Answer: Less than 1 year (worth 0 points)
- Answer: 2 – 3 years (worth 3 points)
- Answer: 3 or more years (worth 5 points)
If the candidate selects answer 2, worth 3 out of 5 points, they would get 60%. The total assessment scores are a tally of all the points the candidate was given divided by the total points possible.
Assessment scoring is recommended when dealing with large volumes of candidates. It can help you identify your top candidates quickly.
