Professional Skills Assessment & Cognitive Testing

Ensure Your Candidate Has the Qualifications They Claim

Gauge What Your Candidates Really Know

After reference checking, appropriately implemented skill and behavioral assessments can become the next most important tool for determining “fit” for the position.

How a Professional Skills Assessment Works

Professional skills assessment testing can help identify the strengths, weaknesses and training gaps in every candidate, plus allow you to distinguish the valuable contributors from the less motivated applicants.

Use professional skills testing to evaluate basic math and reading abilities or measure competency on Microsoft Office, QuickBooks and other common office applications.

Pre-employment assessments are also available to help determine whether your candidate possesses the knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs) most often associated with certain occupations including:

  • Architecture and Engineering
  • Athletics and Coaching
  • Construction
  • Financial
  • Food Service Related
  • Healthcare Practice
  • Healthcare Support
  • Information Technology
  • Legal
  • Maintenance and Repair
  • Management
  • Office and Administrative Support
  • Production and Manufacturing
  • Protective Service
  • Sales and Customer Service

How Cognitive and Behavioral Assessments Work

Cognitive or Behavioral Assessments can help you further identify whether candidates possess the temperament for management, sales, employee supervision or other job responsibilities.

Barada Associates provides dozens of personality assessments and skill tests from leading industry providers including the Hogan Assessment Series, WonderLic, Predictive Index and Profiles International. All tests can be conveniently administered online, from the security of your office or the applicant’s individual location (when permitted).

Let us help customize a set of tests and surveys to meet your particular needs. We can also help facilitate development of an internal benchmarking system to help you further evaluate aptitude for success based on existing key performers.
