Assess Expert System for Selection and Development

Why is Assess Used?


Assess is designed to help objectify the pre-employment process for professional and managerial candidates. The assessment measures intellectual abilities and work-related personality characteristics. Assess reports present an integrated and comprehensive evaluation of the candidate in areas such as intellectual ability, thinking style, work approach, motivations and interpersonal style. Report content also includes a quick summary of potential strengths and weaknesses, interview suggestions for follow-up, management suggestions and template comparisons to an array of job-level and job-type norm groups.


People want and need specific, objective feedback regarding their assets and liabilities; however, giving this type of feedback may be beyond the ability or resources of many managers. Assess Developmental Reports can assist in the delivery of this type of constructive feedback in one-on-one coaching situations or as a part of a programmatic workshop offering. Reports are written for the participant in a constructive tone. Content includes a comprehensive description of the individual's intellectual abilities and thinking style, work approach, motivations and interpersonal style. In addition to highlighting potential strengths and weaknesses and providing personalized developmental suggestions, Assess Developmental Reports and supporting materials provide a structured approach to formulating a personal developmental action plan complete with developmental resources, timetables and performance improvement indicators.

Promotion and Career Changes

Although observed job performance should be the primary consideration when making a promotion decision, some promotions involve significant changes in job responsibility. When the new job requires the demonstration of new skills and abilities not observable in the old job, Assess can help by providing objective indicators of potential strengths and weaknesses in the new position. Assess can aid people who are contemplating a career or job change. Based on the information provided in their Assess Career Manager Reports, individuals can focus their search on jobs or careers that will be a better fit with their personality. Also, they will be better prepared to manage aspects of their personality that might interfere with effective self-management during a job search. Reports include a comprehensive description of the individual's intellectual abilities and thinking style, work approach, motivations and interpersonal style. Job Fit suggestions, in combination with supporting exercise guides, help the participant to evaluate his or her personality fit with various job or career choices. Job Search suggestions are specifically targeted at helping the participant to constructively manage aspects of his or her personality during a job search.

Assess administers two personality inventories, and one or more intellectual ability assessments.

  • Valid, Reliable Management

  • Management Suggestions
  • Should the Expert System software identify any special areas for management concern, you'll have them at your fingertips for immediate consideration.
Assess provides specific developmental guidelines for your present employees, and assists in evaluating candidate's abilities, strengths, and weaknesses before making the hiring decision.
