Reduce bias

The advantage of behavioural assessments lies in their objectivity, as they do not necessitate a human evaluator or assessor. Human assessors can potentially introduce unconscious bias into the assessment process. Through behavioural testing, we reduce the likelihood of unconscious bias at this stage in the recruitment process, thereby ensuring that high performers are not excluded due to irrelevant demographic factors. Our assessments are meticulously crafted with inclusivity as a primary consideration.

The strongest predictor of success

Research has shown that behavioural assessments are powerful predictors of job performance. Our assessments measure the specific behavioural constructs which underpin performance, employee engagement, and job satisfaction, helping to ensure person-role fit. This allows you to maximise the probability of hiring the right candidates, improving quality of hire.

Learning Agility Test FAQs

How much does it cost?

We charge on a per-candidate basis, not on a per-assessment basis. Please visit our pricing page for more information.

When should I use a personality questionnaire?

Any stage of selection. Personality questionnaires can form part of your initial sift or, more commonly, they are one element of a process you have for shortlisted candidates. For example in senior roles it is common to ask shortlisted candidates to complete the questionnaire remotely and then come in for a structured interview.

What levels are these tests designed for?

This is one of the advantages of our adaptive test technology; this questionnaire is suitable for all levels. However, the TPAQ-45 is best suited to high stakes recruitment and the TPAQ-27 is best suited to early stage sifting.

How do you protect candidate date?

We're glad you asked! This is something Test Partnership are quite passionate about and we have implemented privacy by design principles throughout our organisation. We have a whole host of safeguards including: access control; encryption; firewalls; retention policies; and anonymisation. To see all the steps we take please see our GDPR page.
