ASSESS Expert System
ASSESS has been developed and continually refined over the past 16 years by the industrial/organization psychologists of Bigby, Havis & Associates. The measurement scales are based on sound theory and psychometric principles, including normative data on 50,000+ professionals and managers.
The ability to display competence in a given area is the result of many factors working together. These factors include innate characteristics (natural ability, personality) and learned characteristics (knowledge, experience and skills).
The ASSESS System administers, scores, and evaluates the results of the assessment battery and writes assessment reports much like a psychologist would. Unlike simple report writing systems, ASSESS models the expert judgment of a psychologist by evaluating scores from 3 to 5 measures simultaneously in a profile manner, rather than making simple scale-by-scale evaluations.
ASSESS's profile-level approach provides a much more coherent evaluation of the candidate and produces very readable, information-rich reports. The ASSESS competency library includes 38 competencies that are critical to the performance of management, supervisory and professional level employees:
