Q:

How do you know an assessment works as it claims to?

A:

It’s easy to find an assessment with amazing claims, but few companies are willing to show you the research conducted on their assessment. Our assessments are both valid (they measure what they claim to) and reliable (the results have been repeated consistently). You can read more about the psychometrics, or statistical analysis, of our assessments at www.humanesources.com/research. We’re proud of the meaningful difference our assessments make in students’ lives every day and are happy to share their results.
