What will I learn in this course?

Despite plenty of scientific evidence that shows that psychometric assessments are a better predictor of performance than most other talent assessment methods, there is still a lot of confusion, myths and misconceptions around the use of talent assessments to effectively identify and select talent. In this course, globally renowned psychologist, author, and entrepreneur, Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic will walk you through everything you need to know about when and how to use assessments for talent identification.

In this course, we will answer the following questions:

  • What are assessments and how do they work?

  • What makes a good assessment?

  • What are the major types of assessment?

  • Can people fake an assessment?

  • Are assessments biased?

  • How has technology reshaped the assessment landscape?

  • What questions should you ask when evaluating the new game-based and AI-based assessment tools?

The objective of this course is to provide you with a solid foundation of what assessments are, when they should be used and to be able to understand the difference between traditional assessments and the new digital assessment tool. On completing this e-learning module you will become much more fluent in understanding how assessments work and how you can use assessments to identify high-performing talent in your own organisation.
