A question we often get is how to view candidate answers for each question in a multiple-choice test. While we fully understand why this is insightful, we keep the correct answers hidden to protect the integrity of our tests. 

  • Some candidates might try to sign up for an account pretending to be a customer. If we showed the answers, this would allow those candidates to cheat because they'd have access to the answers just like you!
  • Showing the answers provides a very large risk of the questions and answers leaking to the internet. If that were to happen, a simple Google search would allow your candidates to get perfect scores. That's no good for you!
That said, we completely empathize with the need to see more insight into your candidate's performance. 

Here are a few ways you can gain more insight into your candidate's performance:

1. Take the test yourself

Inviting yourself to the assessment gives you first hand experience of what your candidate will go through as well as establish an initial benchmark.

Tip: Inviting yourself, or an account user, to an assessment does not require the use of a candidate credit. Our platform automatically recognizes members of your team so feel free to test as much as you want before inviting external candidates!


2. Click on the percentages to see detailed scores

All of our multiple choice skills tests are broken down into several skill areas. We call these detailed test scores and they allow you to see how well each candidate did in each skill area.

Note: You can read more about detailed test scoring here.


3. Make use of scoring benchmarks

Also known as percentile rank scoring, a scoring benchmark represents how your candidate performs relative to a benchmark of other candidates who have taken the test.

You can determine which group of candidates you want to compare the results. We have benchmarks based on educational level, seniority, and business function in which the candidates have had most of their career. You can also compare them to all candidates in the system who've taken the same test.

By selecting the most relevant benchmark, you can better assess how your candidates did overall since they'll be compared against a relevant norm group.
