Select your Test Battery
When assessing candidates you want to gain insight into a broad range of the individual’s characteristics in one easy manner. To do this, use a group of tools, called a ‘Test Battery’. The information from the assessments will help you decide who will be the be best candidate for your role.
Which Test Battery (group of tools) do I need to use?
The three questions below will guide you to which test battery to use.
1) Is this a leadership role or a role where leadership responsibilities may be required in the future?
a. YES use 'MAP' For leadership roles use MAP (Leadership version) - For roles where leadership may be required in the future use MAP (Team member version)
b. NO – use 'Mini MAP' )
2) Is understanding how the person relates to others important?
a. YES use 'EFI'
b. NO – no need to use 'EFI'
3) Do you need to understand the person’s capacity to learn; the level of work complexity they can handle and how quickly they think?
a. YES use 'ART'
b. NO – no need to use 'ART'
For example - You have a leadership role, it's important to understand how the person relates to others and you want to understand the person's capacity to learn, then you would use the MAP-EFI-ART (leadership version) test battery. If the role doesn’t have leadership responsibilities however may lead to them in the future then use MAP-EFI-ART (team member version).
