Prevue is three tests in one.
It takes about an hour to complete. Tests can also be modulised. Plus the ability to construct instant job benchmarks and compare candidates against several reporting options.
Prevue Abilities Tests
Often referred to as General Mental Ability, Cognitive Reasoning or learning speed this test measures a job candidate’s abilities described in terms of:
* Working with Numbers (Numerical Reasoning);
* Working with Words (Language Skills); and
* Working with Shapes (Spatial Reasoning)
Time to complete: 18 minutes (timed)
Prevue Interest Inventory
Provides an assessment of a candidate’s areas of interest described in terms of their interest in:
* Working with Data;
* Working with People; and
* Working with Things.
Time to complete: 10-15 min on average (untimed)
Prevue Personality Inventory
Based upon the “Big 5?, the recognised personality scales for occupational assessment instruments. The major scales are: Independence, Conscientiousness, Extraversion and Emotional Stability, (ICES). Each of these major scales is constructed from two sub-scales, details of which are contained in the Prevue Assessment Technical Manual.
Time to complete: 20-30 minutes on average (untimed)
The Prevue benchmarking process helps identify and define those cognitive, motivational, and personality attributes that are associated with success on the job - Job-Fit.
A candidate’s measured attributes are compared to the benchmark yielding an overall percentage match of suitability, a Total Person narrative and a summary of each measured characteristic.
The overall percentage match figure helps management rank applicants in the order of their job suitability. The Prevue Selection Report generates behavioural interview questions specific to the benchmark.
How Are Benchmarks Created?
Prevue benchmarks are customised to the organisation’s job specifications. This is accomplished in several ways:
- Job Description Survey – Completed by people who “know” the job (15 mins).
- Concurrent Validation Study – Test current high performers.
- Combination – Combining the above into one benchmark.
- Manual – Suitable for job experts
The Prevue benchmark process is completely self-contained, enabling clients to use this feature at any time and any location. The one-off benchmarking fee for each job equals the cost of one assessment.
