LIFE SCIENCE ASSESSMENT
As headhunters, we are always seeking to find the right combination of tools and measures to best help us predict success - we call this predictive validity. Predictive validity is a figure between 0 and 1 that indicates how robust the relationship between a particular factor (e.g. numeric ability) and a specified outcome (typically job performance). Job performance is a multi-dimensional construct which indicates how well employees perform their tasks, the initiative they take and the resourcefulness they show in solving problems. Furthermore, it indicates the extent to which they complete tasks, the way they utilize their available resources and the time and energy they spend on their tasks.
Generally, a predictive validity of 0.30 is considered acceptable, and a validity of 0.5 is considered excellent.
Our unique assessment tools e.g. include validated, behavior-based, hypothesis-driven and job-simulating test case tools, psychometric testing etc.
