Science FAQ

Psychometric tests are used by employers to assess intelligence, abilities, potential and personality.

It is a scientific assessment tool, disguised as a video game. The rich graphics and narrative create a more fun and immersive experience for candidates to engage and resolve various Situational Judgement Tests.

SJTs are a popular personnel selection method, designed to assess an applicant’s judgment regarding a situation encountered in the workplace. SJT’s present respondents with work-related situations and a list of plausible courses of action. Respondents are asked to evaluate each course of action for either the likelihood that they would perform the action or the effectiveness of the action. Thus, SJTs tend to determine behavioral tendencies, assessing how an individual will behave in a certain situation, and knowledge instruction, which evaluates the effectiveness of possible responses. In our case, Owiwi has transformed these work-based scenarios into a fictional narrative to create a unique assessment offering. 

Plato once said “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation” and he was absolutely right. We brought together the scientific world of psychometrics and gamification to create a Stealth Assessment tool. These tools aim to lower users' defenses and draw more genuine reactions out of them by lowering test anxiety; resulting in a more pleasant recruitment experience.

Norms are essentially benchmarks of data that make it possible to compare candidates results with a demographic audience of your choosing. The point is to determine the relative standing of an individual who has taken a test - and provide a basis for comparing the individual with a group in an objective manner. Numerical values called centiles (or percentiles) serve as the basis for our system of norms.
