Assessments Overview


Not all tests are created equal

While testing has a long history of providing employers with valuable, objective insight into an individual’s likelihood to succeed in a particular role (and are now used widely across many top organizations), not all tests are equally adept at providing the information an employer may need. CRI offers a suite of job-specific tests as customized assessments for the most comprehensive understanding of a candidate.

Excluding specific skills tests and honesty/integrity tests, most employers that use testing want to know about an individual’s mental abilities and personality traits.

The hundreds of stand-alone personality tests available can’t provide a complete picture of an individual without taking into consideration how that person’s mental abilities interact with his or her personality.

Adding to the confusion are the scoring scenarios implemented by the test developers, which often include a single score or pass/fail scoring system. While easy to interpret, such scoring systems often lead to over-reliance on test results and potential litigation concerns.

Our Solution

At CRI we realize the importance of having one instrument that includes both mental and personality measurement, plus a scoring system that is not subject to the concerns of the pass/fail methods.  We call this the 3-Factor Analysis, and are proud to have been the first company in America to develop and debut an instrument which included all 3 critical test elements.

The CRI Difference

In addition to the 3-factor analysis, CRI offers a suite of job-specific assessments including added-value report features such as:

  • Narrative segment explaining each aptitude and personality dimension being assessed for a specific role, and how the individual scored in each
  • Pictorial analysis comparing the individual’s scores to the desirable benchmarks established for each corresponding role
  • Customized interview questions that can be used in follow-up interview situations to further validate fit
  • Personal development suggestions based on aptitudes and behaviors required to successfully perform any given role

What can our assessments do for you?

To effectively manage its human capital, an organization needs to have as much information as possible. Unfortunately, the employee selection and management process is too often clouded by subjectivity and incomplete information to be as effective as it could be. Testing applicants and employees with CRI’s suite of job-specific assessment offerings can clear the air by:

  • Revealing an individual’s true talents
  • Providing a clear basis for comparison with other candidates
  • Yielding a comparison of abilities with those required by the job
  • Generating questions to ask in an interview
  • Introducing objectivity into the selection process
  • Providing evidence of due diligence in the event of litigation
  • Deriving benchmarks of successful performers
  • Developing specific training and development programs
  • Giving insight to managers on how to best manage subordinates
