Assessments will typically be performed by candidates in an environment of their choice. This is considered to be a ‘Remote’ undertaking of an assessment.
It may, however, be desirable to request candidates to undertake one or more assessments under ‘Supervised’ conditions, usually in your offices or an assessment centre. Supervised assessments can provide more confidence in verifying the results of the candidate.
The requirement for a candidate to undertake the assessment remotely or supervised is supplied when creating an Invitation.
Invitations will default to ‘Remote’ mode if not explicitly specified.
Candidates who remotely complete a Revelian Cognitive Ability (RCAT) test can, subsequently, be invited to complete a second test under supervised conditions to verify their results.
To achieve this workflow an initial invitation is created with the type configured to ‘Remote’, once the candidate has undertaken the assessment, a second ‘Supervised’ invitation is then created. Correspondence with the candidate for both sittings of the assessment is the responsibility of the integration.
Verifications may also be used with the below assessments.
The verification approach may not be used with any other assessment type. In other words, all other assessments may only be undertaken by the candidate once, either remotely or under supervised conditions, but not both.
Verified assessments have a minimum and maximum allowable deviation between the remote sitting score and the supervised sitting score. If the supervised score deviates within the allowable range then the original (remote) score is retained.
If the supervised score is greater than the maximum allowable deviation for the remote score, then it is considered to be a significant increase, and the overall score for the candidate wil remain that of their remote sitting of the assessment.
If the supervised score is less than the maximum allowable deviation for the remote score, then it is considered to be a significant decrease, and the overall score for the candidate wil be updated to reflect that of their supervised sitting of the assessment.
