Assessments as Unique As You

There are plenty of off-the-shelf job knowledge tests to choose from, however they often test for knowledge that simply isn’t relevant to your unique roles and organization.


At HighMatch, every client relationship starts with our Workplace Psychologists understanding your challenges, goals, and the unique elements of your roles & culture.

We then create a personalized knowledge assessment, built to only measure candidates against the knowledge measures that matter most to you using your preferred language.

types of job knowledge tests

While HighMatch offers a truly personalized job knowledge test uniquely tailored for every client and job level, most requests fall into one or more of the following:

Role-based tests


Most roles require understanding of specific technology and concepts to be effective on the job

industry-based tests


Many industries require knowledge only gained from study and experience in the field

company-based tests


Often larger organizations have specific knowledge requirements for roles they deem critical

How it works

We start by meeting with your team to understand your roles and their specific knowledge requirements.

From there, our workplace psychologists quickly create face-valid knowledge tests focused exclusively on the knowledge measures that matter most in your unique roles.

Those knowledge tests are hosted and distributed using our modern, mobile-first assessment platform.
