Aptitude Testing Online

Discovery allows you to test a single skill or ability, or set up an entire battery to test all the aptitudes that are relevant to you. Set up an online test for a candidate and Discovery will allow them to complete the tests at their convenience, though you can set a deadline date if required. Their results will appear in your Discovery account as soon as each test is completed.

Direct and Relevant Reporting

In addition to a candidate's score, Discovery provides a detailed breakdown of specific topics, so you can see exactly where a candidate's strengths lie.

Discovery also provides individual results compared against a wide sample of others, so you can see how a candidate compares against the population as a whole. Perform a test more than once and Discovery will even show you a graph of performance over time.

Organising your Testing

Discovery incorporates a powerful 'Workgroups' feature that lets you combine and organise your tests and candidates. Within a Workgroup, you can set up a consistent set of tests, and keep all related candidates (applicants for a particular job, say) in one convenient place.

Workgroups also give you automated Job Matching, so for any set of candidates, you can immediately see which show the most promising results.
