Cognitive Assessments: How We Customize Assessments To Your Needs

Advantages of Cognitive Assessments

  1. Easy to administer
  2. Can be used indirectly to measure mental ability
  3. Results are not observer bias as they are quantitative and objective in nature
  4. The same assessment can be taken by the same or other candidates in order to validate the result
  5. The results of cognitive assessments have been highly successful in predicting future job performances

Limitations of Cognitive Assessments

  1. Assessment results may be affected by a number of extrinsic factors like age, gender, education, etc
  2. Leadership roles require skills beyond intelligence, and hence, for such roles, results of only cognitive assessments cannot be considered for hiring a candidate for such roles.

How We Curate an Assessment at Mettl to Assess a Candidate For A Particular Role?

Benchmarking As We Know It

Benchmarks are calculated across three factors –

  1. Levels
  2. Content type
  3. The difficulty level of the questions used

In Mettl assessments, benchmarking is done based on relevant sample sets –

  1. Based on local data – If the data is available for more than 50 candidates, then benchmarking can be done.
  2. Based on global data – The data used here will not be restricted to just Tier 1 colleges but will include the data for all the candidates who have been tested on that skill.
