How can a current employee take an assessment for a promotion?
If an existing employee has not taken an assessment and would like to take one for promotion to a new position, the employee will need to submit a new application to the new position. The employee should access the company's job application to submit a new application with the assessment. The employee needs to enter the Four Identifiers (First Name/Last Name/PIN/DOB) as they did on their previous application, to associate the new application with their current record. Since they have not taken the assessment previously, it will be available during the application process.
I forgot to enable an assessment. Can an applicant apply again and get the assessment if I just enabled it?
After an Administrator enables the assessments for particular jobs, you may have those applicants go back through the application process as usual. As long as the applicant uses the same identifiers they used previously, it will connect it to their current applications. If the applicant does not use the same identifiers, a new application will be created.
Can I remove or customize questions on the Assessment?
No, each assessment is a set group of questions purposefully based on research for effectiveness. An Administrator in the system can choose to remove the assessment as a whole from the desired position(s).
Can I preview the Assessment questions in our Application?

If using the Attitude Assessment, there are 27 default questions. These cannot be changed, however, the Administrator has the option to add additional questions.
