Learn how to create a test to evaluate your candidates throughout the recruitment process

Updated this week

Pre-employment testing is a valuable tool that helps mitigate the risk of poor hiring decisions. It is more effective than assessing candidates on the job during a probation period. By implementing pre-employment tests, you can evaluate job-critical skills, competencies, communication abilities, cultural fit, emotional intelligence, integrity, and more. To create your own pre-employment test, follow these steps:

Step 1: Accessing the test creation

To create a test in the Recruiting section, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Recruitment section. Click on the Tests tab.

  2. Click the Add test button.

  3. Fill in required fields:

    • Enter the Title of the test.

    • Enter the Description of the test. Use this field to provide all necessary information about the test, including its purpose and conditions. This information will be visible to the candidates after they receive the test assignment email.

  4. If applicable, specify a time limit for completing the test.

Step 2: Crafting questions

  1. Choose the desired question type:

    • Select the question type from the drop-down list, such as:

      • Single select: For questions with one correct answer from a provided list.

      • Single checkbox: For questions requiring a single checkbox response. Can be more than 1 answer.

      • Single-line text: For questions requiring detailed text answers.

2. Enter the question in the Question field.

3. In the Value fields below, specify the answer options for the question.

4. Tick the correct answers. These will be used to calculate the score for this question. Even though multiple answers may be correct, candidates can only select one in the Single select question type.

5. When creating a question, you also have the option to upload your own files, such as images with graphic tasks, to provide additional context or visual information.

Step 3: Saving and publishing the test

After creating the test, click the Save button at the bottom of the page. The test will be saved as a draft version. Before publishing, you can preview the test and make any necessary edits.

Once you are ready, publish the test. It is now ready to be sent to candidates for completion. You can analyze the results once the candidates have taken the test.

🎉 Congratulations! You have created a pre-employment test that can provide valuable insights into candidate suitability for the position.
