cut-e's new communications game

cut-e has launched a new customisable, psychometric communications game: chatAssess.
This powerful situational judgement tool in the instant messaging style of WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger assesses a candidate’s strengths, personality and abilities. chatAssess can be customised to suit any role, at any level, in any organisation. The 6 – 15 minute assessment is designed to support early screening and attraction in graduate and apprentice recruitment. chatAssess is optimised for smartphones as well as working seamlessly on tablets, laptops and desktops.

Why has cut-e introduced chatAssess?

In many Situational Judgement Tests (SJT), the situations encountered do not feel
‘real’ to candidates, thus reducing user acceptance and compromising test validity. Also, the available responses may not feel natural to candidates, who can become confused about whether to answer ‘what they would do’ or ‘what they think is the right thing to do’. With this in mind, cut-e set out to create a brand new, valid and immersive SJT that would be both realistic and fun to complete.

How does chatAssess assist organisations?

chatAssess can be used before or in conjunction with personality or ability tests to enrich the selection process for any organisation and every function. chatAssess provides additional insight into a candidate’s behaviour and how they’re likely to react when faced with job-relevant scenarios. Like a Realistic Job Preview, this can inform the candidate about issues and challenges likely to arise in the role for which they applied.

What makes chatAssess different?

The assessment resembles a popular messenger service for smartphones. This helps to make it attractive, engaging and realistic to candidates, who receive incoming instant messages from ‘colleagues’ with specific questions or requests for advice. In real time, the candidate selects a text message response from predefined replies. chatAssess reacts to each response and sends back another message from the same ‘colleague’. The different ‘colleagues’ will often face different issues or challenges and the candidate must prioritise the tasks and manage all commitments under pressure. From a user-experience perspective, chatAssess appeals to millennials and early career candidates by providing a conversational interaction in a familiar format.
