Test-taker friendly design

To take the assessment, the test taker simply clicks on the WorkFORCE Assessment for Job Fit link, logs in and then follows clear instructions to complete the assessment.

  1. Candidates are asked to complete a background information questionnaire. The information is for research purposes only and is not used for scoring purposes.
  2. Candidates then answer a series of questions.

    For each question, the test taker is asked to select which of two statements is more like him or her. The choices presented are objectively equally attractive, and the test taker cannot jump to the next question without answering the current question. This forced-choice format makes it difficult for test takers to fake their response.

  3. After the last question, the test taker is asked to take a short post-assessment survey, which is also used for research purposes only.

Although the assessment typically takes only 15–20 minutes, the test taker has up to one hour to complete it. The timer starts once the test taker sees the first question.
