What is it?
The Performance Inventory is a series of nine employment tests that are the result of 30 years of applied research and consulting to hundreds of organizations. Each of the Inventories focuses on a set of personal traits that leads to productive performance, enabling the tests to predict what people will do in a number of job functions.
How does it work?
The test items ask applicants to report their everyday behavior, rather than to give their attitudes and opinions, thus making them more fake-resistant and less intrusive. Taking the tests is a benign experience. They are professionally presented as just one more part of the job application, revealing applicants’ qualifications, but not raising their sensitivity. Written at the sixth-grade reading level, the tests take applicants about seven minutes to complete, and can be given in any combination that makes sense for the job.
How does it help you?
The Performance Inventories tests help you cut down on the costly interviews. What is important to understand is that the ingredients measured by the tests—are job performance-related, not merely academic.
