The HR industry is undergoing a rapid transformation with the advent of new technologies and innovations. One of the most promising developments is the integration of visual-based psychometric assessments with HRMS platforms.
This blog will focus on the strategic partnership between two leading HR tech companies, Keka and PMaps Assessment. We will talk about how we are revolutionizing HR operations with their integrated solutions. We will also discuss the benefits of having a functional HR ecosystem that leverages the power of psychometric assessment backed by human science and machine learning
What are Visual-Based Psychometric Assessments?
Psychometric assessments are standardized tests that measure various aspects of human behavior, such as personality, aptitude, skills, motivation, and values. Psychometric assessments are widely used in the HR industry for various purposes, such as hiring, training, development, performance appraisals, and succession planning. Psychometric assessments help HR professionals make objective and data-driven decisions for their workforce.
However, traditional psychometric assessments have some limitations and challenges, such as:
- Language barriers: Many psychometric assessments are based on text, which requires a certain level of language proficiency and familiarity from the test-takers. This can create difficulties for people who have different linguistic backgrounds, and may result in unfair or inaccurate outcomes.
- Test anxiety and boredom: Many psychometric assessments are lengthy and tedious, which can cause test anxiety and boredom among the test-takers. This can affect their performance and motivation, and may lead to dishonest or random responses.
- Cheating and faking: Many psychometric assessments are vulnerable to cheating and faking, as the test-takers can use external sources or manipulate their responses to get a desired result. This can compromise the validity and reliability of the assessments and may result in hiring or promoting the wrong candidates.
To overcome these limitations and challenges, PMaps Assessment has developed a novel approach to psychometric testing that is based on visual stimuli, rather than text.
Visual-based psychometric assessments use images, videos, animations, or graphics to elicit responses from the test-takers, rather than words. This makes the assessments more engaging, language agnostic, and fair.
These also incorporate advanced features such as proctoring, lie detection scale, and short testing time, making the assessments more reliable, valid, and efficient.
