The PXT Select™ Suite
PXT Select™ is the first major business assessment with computer adaptive assessment technology built in. It is an online selection assessment that measures a candidate’s cognitive abilities, behaviors, and interests. It provides organizations with actionable, objective data about candidates in a simple to understand format that can assist you in the interview.
Hiring & Selection
The PXT Select™ Comprehensive Selection Report is the primary report used for candidate selection. This report provides the most thorough view of the candidate data. The report is organized into three main parts: Results Summary, information about the Performance Model, and Interview Questions.
PXT Select helps fill the gap between the resume and the interview. No tool can capture that picture completely.
Hiring & Selection
Sales Selection Report
The PXT Select™ Sales Comprehensive Selection Report is the primary report used for selection of sales positions. It differs from the Comprehensive Selection Report in that it includes a section on Critical Sales Practices and also incorporates sales-related language throughout the report. These differences are highlighted below, but make sure to reference Comprehensive Selection Report, on page 8, for a full description of this actionable report.
The Coaching Report contains an individual’s assessment results as well as coaching tips about how he or she may approach different aspects of the position. The report can be used as part of the selection process, but it is often used for onboarding, coaching, training, and development. For each scale, there is “Bottom Line” advice about the person’s results on the scale. These statements zero in on a critical behaviors.
Multi Candidate Report
When you have multiple candidates to screen or interview for the same position, the Multiple Candidates Report is a helpful tool in the selection process. This report aggregates several candidates into one document and shows the fit percentages for each candidate against the same position’s Performance Model. It reports on Thinking Style, Behavioral Traits, and Interests for all the candidates you choose to compare.
Multi Position Report
This report is useful for both selection and development. In selection, hiring managers can create a comparison to find the best position for a candidate in their database, even positions the candidate did not originally know about or apply for. When used for employee development purposes, the report shows how aligned an individual is to different positions in the organization that may be part of his or her career path. Managers can then use the report to help the employee prepare for future roles.
This report is designed to shed light on a candidate’s leadership potential and provide insight into how the individual might confront the complexities of a leadership role. It helps hiring managers understand how a candidate leads by providing insight into how an individual’s cognitive and behavioral traits and interests can affect their potential as a leader. In addition to selection, this report can also be used in coaching or development context.
The Team Report can help team leaders and team members address the group’s dynamics in a constructive way. It consists of multiple employees’ results on the Behavioral Traits scales, as well as narrative feedback about what those results may mean for a team. It is designed so that each team member can receive a personalized report, with the feedback written to him or her, rather than a single team report where the narrative is written solely to the manager. As used in selection to determine how a new employee will fit the dynamics of a particular team.
Positive Conflict Report
The Manager-Employee Report helps build an understanding of how the manager approaches the job of supervising others and how an employee prefers to be managed, allowing the manager and employee to build a more effective relationship. The report is frequently used as an onboarding or coaching tool to help the manager and employee work more effectively together. Managers often use this to start off on the right foot with new employees or to improve their relationship with individuals they are already managing.
The Individual’s Feedback Report gives feedback directly to the candidate in narrative form. It does not provide the candidate’s scores, nor does it make a comparison of the candidate against the Performance Model. Instead, it explains what the assessment measures and then provides an interpretation of the results in a written format, describing Thinking Style, Behavioral Traits, and Interests. This report is often shared with the candidate or given to the new employee during the onboarding process.
