Test Security

We're committed to enabling organisations to make better talent decisions through assessments that provide an accurate and reliable predictor of job performance. In order to ensure this, we employ measures to increase the security of our assessments and reduce the opportunity for gaming or faking the assessments.

For example, we use dynamic testing to deliver different items to different test takers, reducing item exposure. We also employ adaptive technology to deliver different items to test takers based on their ability level. This reduces the ability to game the assessments and also makes it possible to deliver a shorter and more accurate result.

For personality assessments, we employ measures to flag invalid results if the test taker provides inconsistent or distorted responses. With these measures in place, employers can make a more informed employment decision and consider requesting a retest.

Data Security

We employ measures to reduce vulnerability in our IT systems and data. In addition, we collect minimal PII (Personally Identifiable Information) and manage all information in accordance with GDPR and CCPA. To learn more about our approach to cybersecurity, visit our Cybersecurity FAQs
