How did you first develop the assessment?
The initial assessment questionnaire was delivered manually, followed by an interview to validate results and gather feedback. Several different individuals were used to deliver the assessment in order to eliminate any bias. While no official count is available, it is estimated over a thousand individuals were manually assessed across multiple real-world situations from job applicants in specific industries, to individuals in personal scenarios such as attending a dog training school to see if there were any patterns between owners and pets (yes, we actually did this).
By taking this manual approach, we were able to adjust the questions in an attempt to eliminate any gaming of the assessment. The feedback was invaluable which then led to several revisions. All questions are designed to simulate positive workplace situations so that individuals would not adjust their responses to avoid negative connotations.
