There are hundred of psychometric test providers in the market. Most have full validation from recognised national bodies such as the (American) Association for Psychological Science (APS), British Psychological Society (BPS) or the Australian Psychological Society (also APS). Usually it's a condition of receiving validation that test vendors have to provide formalised training to users, or even that users can only be recognised psychologists.
This is often because the tests results in the abstract need to be related back to cognitive and/or personality traits that are relevant to performance in the job and organisational culture.
Many test providers now make significant money from training users in the interpretation of their products' results. Providing "accreditation" - that sometimes needs to be kept current annually. It's become a revenue stream for them in its own right. If the test can only be interpreted by a recognised psychologist, you will find yourself paying even more for a meeting and/or written report. It will also take much longer as you may need to wait for a psychologist to make time available for you or or your candidate.
But what if there was a fully-validated test, that could be delivered online that measures a candidate's cognitive abilities, motivators and personality against a benchmark tailored to your specific role and organisational culture? And required no expensive and time-hogging validation to use?
Prevue is that test. It is quick to administer, cost-effective and you will provided with full training and ongoing support at no additional cost.
How can Prevue and Locum People, its premium ANZ distributor do this? Prevue has been fully validated by the BPS mentioned above and that validation is recognised worldwide. Unlike many other psychometric tests that have clinical origins, Prevue was developed from its inception for HR and business professionals. Reports are written in clear concise language and the Prevue benchmarking system allows you to tailor the reports specifically for your position. It is this benchmarking that negates the need for the additional accreditation to link results to roles. Prevue can be used not just for candidate selection, but also coaching and succession planning.
