2) Complete the product walk-through

The first time you log in to your TestGorilla account you'll be presented with a walk-through option. This is a quick, guided method to get a general idea of what you can do with TestGorilla. The walk-through will show you the core functions and features of our service.

3) Make an assessment

Once you've completed the product walk-through mentioned in the section above, you'll have learned how to create an assessment.

Assessments are one of the core components of TestGorilla. Creating your own sample assessment is the perfect way to get hands-on experience with our service.

We advise you to take a few minutes to go through every step in the assessment creation process. Be sure to look through our entire test library to see which tests we currently offer. Additionally, it's a good idea to create one or two custom questions for your sample assessment. This will allow you to get a feel for the open-ended functions of TestGorilla.

For inspiration, we've created an example assessment and added it to your account. You can use this assessment as a guide for creating your own sample assessment.

If you already know which skills you'd like to test for, you can visit our test library here. Our library is always growing and evolving. If you can't find the type of test you're looking for, please contact us to craft a custom test for you.

4) Complete an assessment yourself

In order to get a full understanding of TestGorilla, it's a good idea to experience our service from the perspective of your future candidates. To do this, simply invite yourself to your assessment by filling in your own name and email address in the final step of the creation process.

We also recommend using the additional free credits in your trial to invite your colleagues and friends to complete your sample assessment. This will allow you to analyze results from multiple candidates, giving you further insight into how the entire process works.

5) Review the results of an assessment

Once you've created a sample assessment and invited multiple people to complete it, you can analyze the results. This final step will not only help you get hands-on experience using TestGorilla, but it'll also help you understand the depth of what we offer.

You can analyze the results of your sample assessment on two different levels.

  • Overview of all candidates: When you click on the assessment on your "My assessments" page, you can compare the results of all candidates that have completed your assessment. How the results in this overview are displayed depends on the types of tests you have selected for your assessment. 
  • Individual candidate results: By clicking on the name of a candidate in the candidates list for the assessment, you can get a detailed overview of his or her assessment results. Here, results are broken down for each test that you selected for the assessment. For some types of tests, additional information is provided to help you interpret the results.

You can also download the results of all results combined in CSV format by hitting the download button at your assessment page.
