How does Heroify ensure the assessments are tailored to match the specific skills I'm looking for in candidates?

Our test questions are crafted by industry experts with extensive experience, overseen by a team of methodologists and psychologists. Heroify combines expert knowledge with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to assess candidates. The AI analyzes your job posting to tailor questions that assess the most critical skills you're seeking in a candidate.

For example, if you're hiring a Content Manager for an online store, the test will focus more on product descriptions, content management, and SEO. On the other hand, if you're looking for a Content Manager for a social media agency, the questions will center around community engagement and user-generated content. In both cases, we assess core content marketing skills but adapt the focus based on your specific needs and industry.

Do your assesments just check candidates on what they know, or do they also evaluate how they think?

Great question!

We go beyond just testing knowledge. Our assessments also evaluate how candidates actually apply their skills in real-world scenarios. Plus, you can add open-ended questions to dig even deeper into their way of thinking. This way, you get a fuller picture of each candidate.

How reliable are the assessment scores? Can a low score actually reflect a candidate's skills?

Our assessments are designed to give a clear and accurate picture of a candidate's specialized knowledge and skills. Don't worry if not everyone aces it; that's the point! A score above 80% is considered excellent. Each question goes through a rigorous vetting process involving multiple experts to make sure it's relevant and high-quality. So, a low score likely means there's room for improvement in the skills being assessed.

How reliable are the questions on Heroify's assessments?

You can trust the quality of our questions.

They're put together by industry pros with a ton of experience, and they go through multiple rounds of reviews before making it into the assessment. So you know you're getting top-notch questions that really evaluate what you're looking for.
