Using Test Generator Software to Create 360 Degree Reviews

Posted by Jennie Aldridge Oct 27, 2016 1:00:00 PM

In the interest of professional development, businesses often use periodic reviews to relay praise and criticism to employees. While this kind of review does offer value, it can also prove to be of limited effectiveness if a variety of perspectives are not solicited. In the average organization, a given employee will interact with many people on a regular basis. Polling some of these people to produce what is called a "360 degree review" can help a manager get a more complete picture of the contributions, strengths, and weaknesses of a given employee, and use it to help that employee develop going forward.

Posted by Jennie Aldridge Aug 27, 2015 12:23:02 PM

How does a test creator measure inherently subjective and often hidden factors like someone's attitude? Observing behavior or asking references can invalidate assessments by being biased by personal judgment. Administrators instead turn to psychometrics to develop fair, accurate and reliable tests concerning otherwise subjective qualities, such as measuring skills and knowledge, attitudes, personality traits and educational achievement. While quantifying these kinds of measurements is challenging, psychometrics can be useful in situations such as employers seeking to find candidates with the ideal characteristics to perform a certain role or helping to match students with the right college program.
