How to set up an auto graded assessment
If you want to instantly qualify candidates based on certain criteria or test their knowledge in a certain field you can set up an auto graded assessment made up of question types that are graded automatically.
Navigate to the "Create New Assessment" tab in your dashboard. From there, input your job title and add at least three relevant skills that you want to evaluate in your assessment. Once you enter the job title and skills, click “Create Assessment”.
After inputting your job title, skills and selecting "Create Assessment" you will be brought to the Create tab where you then will be able to add your questions. Choose one of our automatically graded options as the question type and then add your question text.
In order for an assessment to be auto graded it must not include any questions types that require analysis by the AI or a manual score.
- Multiple Choice questions
- Google Sheets (Spreadsheet) (Auto-graded) questions
- Microsoft Excel (Auto-graded) questions
- Code questions with added auto graded test cases
- Info section questions, which do not require a response from the candidate
- Questions that you have marked as do not grade.
Adding Multiple Choice questions
You will need to select "+ Add Choice" to input your answer choices and assign a point value, ranging from 1-10, for answer selection. Once you have finished designing your question it will save automatically.
You can choose to randomize the questions the candidates receive by order and limit the number of questions out of a pool of questions in your assessment. You can set your preferences in the Settings section of your skills assessment.
Auto reject and progress candidates
When using auto graded skills assessments you have the ability to progress or reject candidates based on their assessment score. You can setup these parameters in your skills assessment settings. From the "Create" tab, navigate down to the "Settings" option.
Towards the bottom of the settings page, you will see the option to activate auto reject and auto progress. Toggle the button to the right to enable these features. This toggle will not appear if your assessments contains questions that are not autograded.
To automatically reject candidates, set the minimum numerical percentage score that you would like to accept and candidates that score below that score will automatically be rejected.
If you would like for candidates to receive an email once they have been auto rejected, make sure that this setting is checked. You can also prevent candidates from being notified if they are rejected by un-checking the email notification box.
To customize or preview the rejection email sent to candidates, select the blue "Preview and edit rejection email" text. A pop-up window will open with the option to "Customize Email".
To auto progress candidates that complete your assessment to a different assessment stage, select another active assessment from the auto progress drop down menu. When this setting is enabled, candidates that score within your auto progress threshold for that assessment, will automatically be invited to take the proceeding assessment and see the option to start the next assessment in their candidate dashboard.
To set your condition choose the minimum score that you want candidates to achieve in order to automatically progress to the next assessment. If you would like all of the candidates that complete your assessment to progress, then you can set a threshold score of 0.
All candidates that are automatically progressed will receive an email notification inviting them to the next assessment. To preview or modify this email, select the blue "Preview and edit email for linked assessment" text. A pop-up window will open with the option to "Customize Email".
