Skill Tests

Skill assessment tests provide an unbiased measurement of a candidate’s ability to perform or understand a duty that is expected of them.

HighMatch skills tests are short, candidate-friendly and tailored to measure the skills and knowledge that matter most in the role and in your organization.

Our Approach

We approach skills testing a bit different than everyone else. HighMatch skills tests, powered by our modern, mobile-first assessment engine, are short and candidate-friendly.

They are also highly personalized, compiled by our team of workplace psychologists from a pool of pre-built components and tailored to measure what matters most in the role.

We believe skills testing is an important piece of the puzzle, however it’s rarely the whole solution. Our clients couple skills testing with other components to ensure they are getting the full picture of candidate’s ability to be successful in the role.

Built For Today’s Candidates

HighMatch’s new, modern assessment engine was engineered for today’s candidates, the first of its kind to be built specifically for use on mobile devices.

It fields assessments and collects data in a fast, candidate-friendly mobile format, applies predictive analytics to responses and delivers actionable insights via intuitive reports.

Hiring teams can easily sort and filter candidates based on responses and share promising candidates with managers.

Key Features

  • SMS Invitations & reminders
  • Configurable scoring

Measure What Matters

Often times a role may require knowledge of a specific concept or piece of software, but not require a mastery of all of it.

Our workplace psychologists partner with you to understand what knowledge and skills are required to be successful. We then create a tailored assessment based on those findings.

You get a mobile assessment that measures those specific set of skills and competencies unique to your role.

Actionable Candidate Insights

HighMatch reports are highly visual, with intuitive reports that help you quickly see whether a candidate is a fit based on their overall score as well as their scores on specific domains.

These reports can also include personalized Interview Guides with the addition of HighMatch Interview, which help hiring managers have more consistent, informed interviews.
