Validated Game-Based
Psychometric Testing

Game-based psychometric tests can be used as pre-hire assessments and as assessments for internal mobility and leadership potential. HireVue games can assess candidates’ skills in a quick and engaging experience. Game-based assessments empower recruiters and hiring managers by surfacing candidates with the highest likelihood of success. They allow you to build greater predictive capability into your hiring processes.

HireVue Game-Based Assessments measure candidate potential and employability by algorithmically linking candidate gameplay to job-relevant competencies, using 3 main competency domains. HireVue’s game-based assessments help you easily prioritize candidates based on their personality and work style, how they work with people and how they work with information.

High-Potential Candidates
Identified Faster

All of HireVue’s pre-employment assessments allow hiring managers to better gauge future candidate success in a single step while minimizing bias. These are a leap forward from legacy assessment tests which can be tedious and time-consuming for candidates.

In a game-based assessment, candidates complete a simple series of games that balance engagement with a professional format. Each game is designed to measure a different job-relevant competency, so hiring managers can identify the top candidates for their unique hiring needs.

Candidates Quickly Engage Anytime, Anywhere

Game-based assessments ensure a great candidate experience. They typically take candidates just 5-20 minutes to complete, and include 2 or more games, depending on what series of competencies you’re evaluating. Instead of completing lengthy traditional questionnaire assessments, candidates complete games that are suited to the type of role and provide a professional experience.

They are also dynamically progressive: difficulty scales up or down based on a candidate’s performance. This means they are challenging, not frustrating because we can gather more information faster than a traditional assessment. Each candidate receives a gameplay experience optimized for their own personal proficiency.

Fair, Unbiased Hiring with Validated Assessments

HireVue’s game-based psychometric tests draw on decades of industrial-organizational (IO) psychological research to assess competencies that are the most predictive of job performance. The HireVue team of data scientists and IO psychologists work together to develop state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms to score and assess those competencies from gameplay.

HireVue Game-Based Assessments are fine-tuned to ensure we have mitigated adverse impact across protected groups. This means you can cast a wider net, giving more candidates a chance in your hiring process, without resorting to bias-prone selection methods like resume reviews.

  • Ability to work with people
  • Personality and work style

Align Game-Based Assessments to Critical Competencies

The HireVue team of IO psychologists works with you to identify the critical competencies for each job role, and select the individual games that measure those competencies and align with the candidate experience you want to provide.

Ready-to-deploy, modular game-based assessments built on a standard competency library help you to easily prioritize candidates according to the competencies that lead to success on the job.
