Ergometrics has knowledge and expertise in the development of fair and objective screening procedures. Following are key aspects in our approach to provide systems with the maximum predictive power and fairness:
Emphasis on video and other techniques for developing simulations is Ergometrics' cornerstone in the process of creating fair, job related tests. Simulations also provide the best measurement of judgment and human interaction skills, which are often critical to job performance. Video testing has been used for over 30 years and is widely supported as a testing methodology that is superior to written tests. Ergometrics’ simulation tests:
Ergometrics is also highly experienced with fairness as related to setting a passing score or cut score. We provide recommended cut scores on our tests so applicants are screened out in the fairest manner possible. Setting a cut score is a complex process that may vary based on various factors related to specific organizations or occupations. We recognize the complexity of this issue and examine many factors during this rigorous process. We consider:
Ergometrics provides a national cut score recommendation for each of our products. However, it is certainly justifiable to alter cut scores based on department specific information. Ergometrics can participate in detailed discussions with departments to determine an optimum cut score for each of our exams.
