How to send assessments to the candidates?

This article outlines the process of how to send assessments to a number of candidates.

Overview

Assessments are tests or exercises that candidates should complete to proceed further in the hiring process. They could be of various forms: 

  • Work-related assignments (e.g. Coding tests) 
  • Skill-based assignments 
  • Personality tests 
  • Aptitude tests

One of the biggest advantages of assessments is that they allow you to shortlist candidates who perform above the acceptable standards. This helps in reducing the number of candidates to be interviewed.  

Let’s see how you can send assessments to candidates using TurboHire. You can send the assessments to a candidate or multiple candidates in a single go.
