Profiling & Ranking
Profiling involves defining a target profile, which specifies the ideal levels of ability and personality traits for the job in question. The FIT score calculated from the test results indicates the level of match between the ideal profile and the respondent’s actual profile.
You can use the supplementary Ranking module to compare a number of respondents. The ranking is based on the extent to which the respondents meet the requirements profile (previously defined by you via the “Profiling” option). You can see at a glance which candidate is most suitable. In practice ranking is frequently used to pre-select applicants.
Profiling and ranking are based on the so-called FIT score. This figure summarizes the individual results in a single score; it greatly simplifies interpretation of the tests, so that the result can be taken in at a glance and easily compared.
Another advantage of the FIT score is the fact that it takes account of compensation options: if the respondent makes up for a weak score on one ability or personality characteristic by strong scores on others, this has a positive impact on the FIT score.
Ideal for recruitment and sport-related assessment
The profiling function involves defining a target profile – i.e. the ideal combination of ability and personality traits for the type of job or type of sport. The FIT score calculated from the test session indicates the level of match between the ideal profile and the person’s actual profile (e.g. 78%). If you have defined several profiles, you can see at a glance which profile the candidate fits best.
The defined target profile and the ranking function can be used to compare a number of people who have been tested. The ranking identifies the candidates that best fit the requirements profile (i.e. who have the best FIT scores) and the order in which they do so. If required, criteria external to the test situation can be included with the tested criteria (e.g. biographical data, professional experience, school grades or interview data). Ranking is often used to preselect candidates.
