Creating your first assessment

Now let's get down to business! Go to the Create section to create your very first assessment:

Start by defining your assessment and configure its parameters:

Name of the assessment

Language of the assessment

Job family & job subfamily

Job type


Then choose one or more tests to make up your assessment. To help you find your way around, we have broken down our test library into five distinct categories:

Job specific: to assess professional skills (with sub-categories for each job family)

Transversal: to assess professional skills that may be relevant to several job families

Cognitive: to assess cognitive skills (reasoning, concentration, perception, attention, memory, etc.)

Language: to assess language skills (written level)

Personality: to learn more about your candidates’ personality and possibly guide future interview questions

πŸ’‘ You can go back at any time if you want to add more tests or create custom questions.

Congratulations, you just created your first assessment! πŸŽ‰

Sharing your assessment to candidates

There are several ways to invite your candidates:

Via email: either by filling in their address directly or by filling in an excel file that will allow you to invite all your candidates in one click

By using a public link that you can copy

By generating a QR code

πŸ’‘ To test your assessment and to put yourself in the shoes of your future candidates, start by taking the test yourself. You can also invite your colleagues to gather their feedback and get an idea of the expected scores for the different tests.
