20 years of experience

We’ve been pioneers in online psychometric testing since 1999 when Revelian (then Onetest) began developing our first psychometric assessments, using the (then very basic) internet. We were, in fact, the first company in Australia to bring psychometric testing online. Over the years, we changed our name to Revelian, developed many more assessments and have a loyal community of customers, including government departments, public and private sector operators, and many small businesses as well. We continue to innovate and grow to meet the needs of the rapidly changing and evolving marketplace.

Transparency

Revelian follows a “glass box” approach by harnessing the power of machine learning and algorithmic insights, while also retaining the capacity for humans to understand and explain how outcomes are predicted. This is primarily done by using methods which simplify, summarise and explain key features in the data, rather than amplifying the complexity in the data.

Glass box approaches are focused on both predicting outcomes as well as providing reliable insight into key factors that describe or differentiate applicants. The key defining feature of a glass box approach is that differences between candidates in their scores or outcomes can be explained by the people who developed or use the assessment. This means that if you’re ever called on to explain or defend a decision, then you can do so.

Linear-On-the-Fly testing

Linear-On-the-Fly Testing (LOFT) is a well-known and respected method of assessment item delivery, often used in high stakes settings including education and recruitment, when test security, validity and fairness are of critical importance. Under the LOFT model, each test-taker receives a unique set of items that are equivalent in terms of content variation and difficulty.

Considered to be a significant improvement to fixed-form delivery in which candidates are streamed one of several pre-determined parallel forms, LOFT ensures that no two candidates receive the same set of items. This heightens the security of the test and ensures that candidates do not gain from sharing item content and responses.

12 month re-sit policy

Candidates completing Revelian assessments are subject to Revelian’s 12 month re-sit policy. A candidates results are considered valid for a period of 12 months from the date of testing. Revelian as an assessment provider has an ethical responsibility to ensure that test validity and reliability is not compromised and that the selection process remains fair and objective. The primary purpose of this policy is therefore to ensure that no candidate has the advantage of practising beforehand.
