Full Description

A pre-employment assessment is a questionnaire that candidates complete as part of the job application process. The use of a valid and reliable assessments is an effective way to determine which applicants are the most qualified for a specific job based on their strengths and preferences. Employers typically use the assessment results to determine how well each candidate's strengths and preferences match the job requirements.During World War I, intelligence tests were performed on Army recruits. Depending on the score, recruits were either placed in Army Alpha (literate) or Army Beta (illiterate). During World War II, the Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test was used as a short-form

cognitive abilities test. The test earned its fame by helping the Navy select candidates for pilot training and navigation. The Cardall Test of Practical Judgment was the first of its kind to measure everyday life problem-solving abilities. After World War II concerns about test-related bias emerged leading to the passing of the Civil Rights Act in 1964. In 1971 the Supreme Court established specific guidelines for pre-employment assessments in Griggs vs. Duke Power. The ruling concluded that selection tests must be job-related and based on specific qualifications. If an adverse impact occurs, such as test results purposefully score protected groups lower, the company must prove the test is job-related.
