Application Assessment

An applicant assessment is a reasonable and impartial method of systematically and fairly evaluating an applicant’s ability and/or fitness for performing position requirements. An applicant assessment may be assembled or disassembled and may consist of one or any combination of performance tests; essential skills assessments; behavior based interview; skill set / competency panel interviews; audio-visual tests; screening of the application, supplemental applications, or resume; or work performance or promotional potential evaluations to evaluate the employee’s ability to perform the essential functions of the position in question. Applicant assessments may include tests of ability, physical fitness, medical and mental fitness, interests, knowledge, and skills.
