From the first personality test invented nearly 100 years ago, to general mental ability tests, to the current landscape featuring machine learning and AI, pre-hire assessments have come a long way. Today’s assessments are breaking new ground and making better choices than humans do.

We take a look at past, present, and look through future glasses to predict how assessments will evolve to present more of the “whole candidate” — and what that means for hiring organizations.
