Approaches to assessing job candidates and employees in talent management are experiencing rapid change. Much of this ‘second revolution‘ in testing and assessment is technologically driven by developments in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI).

But, however compelling these new methods, practitioners should not forget they are selection tests.

In this IBM research paper, you will find an overview of testing in talent acquisition and four specific guidelines for assessment practitioners evaluating new selection methods:

  • What is psychological testing and assessment?
  • Why is testing and assessment used in talent acquisition?
  • Technology’s influence on testing in talent acquisition
  • The first revolution: from paper to online testing and assessment
  • The second revolution: new methods and big data
  • Benefits and challenges of new approaches to assessment
  • Four guidelines for evaluating new methods
