What is Online Assessment?

25 September 2020

Assessment is one of the important tools that can be used by the human resources (HR) division for recruitment and employee’s development. It measures the ability of the candidates or employees in performing different tasks related to their role. It also can be a tool to predict their performance in the future. This process obtains the detailed information about your candidates or employees so you can match them with your company’s qualifications and needs.

Assessment is a process that uses various kinds of tools (multidimensional), such as personality tests and quizzes, cognitive tests, and interviews. Generally assessment is done offline, but nowadays these assessments are mostly conducted in an online mode.

So, what is online assessment? Online assessment can refer to the use of an online platform in administration, execution, scoring, and reporting of the entire assessment process. Online assessment can help the human resource division to manage employees and candidates to start online testing. The online test itself is based on validated psychology theories, and they help to secure your decisions in recruitment and talent mobility by providing you an objective and standardised assessment.

The online assessment process can be followed by an online interview process. Right now, there are many video call platforms that can help you to interact with others virtually. However, you can also develop your own online interview platforms, so you can create company-wide guides to make sure each interviewer asks the questions that need answers for a structured, unbiased assessment. This process will help you to ensure that the answers from the candidates and employees are well recorded and documented. All of these can be completed using a comprehensive and well-designed software system.
