We are pleased to announce that we have added a great new feature to the Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal.
When you are setting up a Watson Glaser assessment on the TalentLens platform, or ordering via phone, you will be able to purchase a development report for each candidate as a standalone item.
In addition to using Watson Glaser as a recruitment tool, this will also enable you to use an individual's Watson Glaser results to inform an onboarding or staff development programme.

Recruitment is increasingly becoming a game of risk management and probability. The most effective selection methods weight the the recruitment game in your favour and reduce the risk of making a bad hire.
However, assessments only improve our odds if they are the right tools for the job, they are used effectively and the offer relevant information to allow recruiters to make informed hiring decisions.
Previous experience, job-relevant skills and academic achievement tell you if someone has the skills and experience to do a job. Personality tells us how we do something (our behaviours): Values tell us why we do something.
TalentLens is delighted to announce a revised version of the classic Raven’s Advanced Progressive Matrices test (APM) has been launched.
Raven’s is a prestigious measure of fluid intelligence (general ability), suitable to help recruitment for a variety of positions.
Tests of 23 items will be generated from a large bank, ensuring randomisation in the tests presented to candidates. This format allows for the test to be administered unsupervised, whilst protecting the integrity of the assessment.
A variety of norms are available, as well as a revised International Technical Manual, produced to incorporate information on the new version of the test and recent research based on a large sample of archival data.
Try Raven's III for yourself to assess its suitability for your recruitment purposes.
Athena, a psychometric test of numerical reasoning that was developed in response to customer requests for a numerical reasoning test which could be administered in an unsupervised setting to sift-out candidates, is now available.
