Artificial Intelligence in Assessment

We have all heard that artificial intelligence has the potential to revolutionise the way we work. Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, says ist impact will be more important than fire or electricity.
AI has been part of assessment since the move to unsupervised testing in the 1980s. Today, just some of the examples of AI being used in assessment are online assessments, automatic analysis of assessment results and test questions being generated by an item generator.

The benefits of video assessment

1. See and hear each candidate. Video enables you to interview many more candidates early in your selection process and quickly assess their suitability for your roles.

2. Save time and costs. Sending a video interview request - and assessing the result - is quick and easy, compared with scheduling, conducting and reviewing in-person interviews.

3. Conduct structured and consistent interviews. Each candidate completes the same interview - and you benefit from standardised, job-related assessment content.  

4. Enhance the candidate experience. Video interviews help candidates to feel that they are truly being considered for the role.

5. Enhance your employer brand. Video interviewing systems can incorporate embedded introductory and closing video messages and/or can include insights into the actual job, which conveys a realistic preview of the role. This can help to engage your candidates and reinforce your employer brand.

6. Review candidates in assessor's own time. Gain the convenience of reviewing candidates in your own time.

7. Reduce the number of ‘no-shows’.

8. Increase the diversity of your applicant pool. By enabling video interviews to be conducted via a mobile device, you can reach a broader pool of applicants.

The benefits of video assessment for candidates

1. Applicants can record their answers in their own time. Their ‘interview’ is scheduled for a time that is convenient for them, so they feel in control of the process. They do not have to miss work or their own pursuits to conduct a scheduled, in-person interview. This appeals to talented, time-pressured candidates. They also save on travel time/costs and, if they are unsuccessful in their application, they can more quickly move on to other job opportunities.

2. Candidates can think through the questions. Invitees get preparation time to respond to each question. So, instead of being caught off guard, they can gather their thoughts and give their best answer. They can re-record their responses if they make a mistake.

3. Potential hires gain a sense of what the job is like. Realistic job previews can be embedded within the video interview process. This helps to ensure that only interested candidates take part - and it means that only those who feel they are a good fit for the role proceed on to the next step in your hiring process.
