This document illustrates standard use of invitations (attributions) as part a typical recruitment process.
Marie Marseau* works as a recruitment officer for ABC-Consulting*.
Today, she is meeting Daniel Elgado* to interview him for a job as a chartered accountant. The recruitment process at ABC-Consulting involves all candidates taking a DISCp4 test. Marie therefore invites Daniel to take one.
(*) names, companies and dates are fictitious and used by way of illustration only.
To allocate a test, Marie can use the "Invitations (attributions)" menu.
To configure the test, Marie must indicate:
- The respondent’s first name;
- The respondent’s last name;
- The respondent’s e-mail address;
- The number of questions to include in the test. The more questions are included, the more precise (and longer) the test will be. A good compromise is to leave the default value of 35 questions;
- The weighted algorithm (beta);
- How to display weighted results (beta);
- Visibility, indicating whether the respondent can see their results at the end of the test or only when Marie decides;
- Invitation options, indicating whether an invitation must be sent by e-mail.
Marie can also send her invitation with a personalized message.
The site automatically generates the single-use secret code "FP6XTYGM28Y29DX", allowing Daniel to access his test.
Taking a test
When the time comes, Marie interviews Daniel. After having briefly explained* how the test works, she gives him the code "FP6XTYGM28Y29DX". Daniel can enter it directly on the home page of our web-site in the space indicated.
NB: It is important for Marie to spend a few moments clarifying the test experience, since some people distrust tests generally.
Daniel can then enter his code on the right page. To do so, he can use the "I have a code" menu.
The site tells Daniel that his test is made up of 35 questions, as chosen by Marie, and that it will last between 14 and 23 minutes.
Daniel has to provide a few details (first name, last name, e-mail address, gender, country etc.) before he can proceed.
The test is now ready.
It is made up of 7 pages of 5 questions, i.e. 35 questions.
It should last between 14 and 23 minutes.
The site invites Daniel to spend less than thirty seconds on each question and to take the test in a quiet place, without stopping for any breaks and without doing anything else at the same time.
For each question, Daniel must choose the answer which corresponds best to him, and the one which corresponds the least, as well as the answers in-between. He must check one box (and one only) per line AND per column, i.e. four boxes per question.
Let’s take a closer look:
Here is a sample answer indicating that Monday is your favorite day, followed by Tuesday, then Thursday and finally Wednesday:
Daniel must now answer another type of question (2 pages). There is only one proposition to choose for each question.
Let’s take a closer look:
Here is an example answer, indicating that it’s the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) that you prefer:
At the end of the test, Daniel receives a message telling him his answers have been recorded.
He also receives an e-mail.
The message specifies that he can't view his results yet since Marie has decided to view them with him later.
Viewing your results
As the test administrator, Marie can view all results immediately. To do so, she can use the "Invitations (attributions)" menu.
The site lists all the invitations and the results managed by Marie. To see the details of any test in particular, Marie can click on "Details".
To manage tests and results, Marie can use the "Results" menu".
Marie can click on "Generate PDF report" to generate Daniel’s report.
Now that it has been generated, Marie can view and download it.
After the interview, Marie can click on "Release" to release Daniel’s results. He can then see his results on the site and will receive a copy by e-mail.
