What are skill assessment platforms?

In layman’s terms, skill assessment platforms help you assess candidates’ skills. These assessments are tailor-made to match specific job roles. By providing insight into the candidate’s abilities, it helps recruiters make informed choices faster.

Why are skill assessment platforms, a better choice?

  • Eliminate bias

    By evaluating candidates solely on their skills, they overcome the drawbacks of a traditional interview setup which otherwise have a risk of bias.

  • Reduce time-to-hire by 90%

    As you are not required to be physically present during the interview and by auto evaluating candidates’ test performance, it saves valuable engineering time.

  • Cost-effective

    They are more cost-effective compared to other hiring methods as they require less manpower, time and effort.

  • 78% of resumes are misleading

    Criteria Pre-Employment Testing claims that 78% of resumes are misleading, hence skill assessment platforms help you verify the genuineness of the candidates.

Even though using skill assessment platforms seem like a smarter solution, having fewer job openings makes startups hesitant to invest in expensive assessment platforms as they have a very less ROI.
