In July 2012, Revelian surveyed over 28,00 former graduates who completed psychometric tests when applying for graduate programs between 2002 and 2011 to participate in a longitudinal study of their career outcomes.
Organisations often use academic performance (Grade Point Average or GPA) to assist with recruitment decisions, particularly in graduate recruitment. However, general cognitive ability is a better predictor of future job performance and is far more effective in short-listing suitable candidates.
DISC (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, Compliance) is one of the most popular models for understanding human behaviour. DISC is one of the most widely used behavioural assessments globally, with several versions available on the market. So what are the advantages of using DISC and how should it be used in the workplace?
The inclusion of the MSCEIT into Revelian’s psychological assessment battery provides organisations with a comprehensive means of assessing a candidate’s emotional abilities. Research supports the capacity of the MSCEIT to predict a range of organisational behaviours.
