QCandidate, qualitative and secure online assessment
Digital assessment tools have been used in an international context for several years now. Since the COVID pandemic, various organisations allow their current and potential employees the freedom to choose between a live assessment on location, or an online assessment using encripted simulations and digital communication tools.
A state-of-the-art assessment center is context-rich, methodical and relational. Participants work face-to-face in a simulated environment, have challenging conversations, give presentations and debate. In addition to preparation time, there is at least 3 hours of contact for observation and dialogue. Several assessors assess their behaviour. Is it possible to combine it all in a digital programme?
Once in a while a fundamental innovation changes the way we work. QCandidate online assessment platform is our way of providing an unmatched online assessment center experience.
All simulations in QCandidate are fully interactive. This means we can offer candidates a complete digital assessment experience with all necessary tools to successfully participate in simulations, wherever they are, with all the dialogue time needed. Function descriptions, organizational structures, In-basket memos & agenda, data for analysis, all fully interactive.
Candidate (and safety) first
A candidate-centric assessment is all about reducing stress and anxiety in order to provide candidates every opportunity to bring out their best. The day schedule gives a clear, structured overview of the assessment day. Simulations come with the right timing, required content and necessary fraud security.
We asked ourselves the question : 'What is the experience of participants, considering that the programme is identical, and the number of contact hours as well ?’
On the basis of a systematic survey, we arrived at the following findings:
Is the quality of the measurement comparable? The answer is ‘not quite’. What have we seen, for example:
Our assessors are well aware of these factors and take them into account in their assessment. The digital means of communicating face-to-face give different opportunities, not the same as face-to-face in a live context.
