ID Recruitment Test – FREE SAMPLE
The ID Recruitment Test is specifically designed to test the basic competencies required by an instructional designer in any environment – Corporate Training, K-12, Multimedia Development, or Publishing. The entire assessment is divided into four sections with a total of forty questions.
This assessment is specifically designed for instructional designers with more than one year of work experience, or those without any work experience but with a diploma/certificate in Instructional Design from a formal institute. Institutions may use this assessment as the FIRST CHECKPOINT in their recruitment process, as shown below.
What’s in it for me?
For Organizations/Institutions: This “test-first” approach makes sense for several reasons. First, there is research evidence that many applicants these days hype their CVs, which in turn, reduces the utility of CVs as initial screening tools. Second, it saves time and effort of the organization in initial screening of candidates. Third, recruiters in our industry are hiring for positions that they know “nothing about”. What they do is map job description (given by the ID team) with the CV – and then invite the candidate for further interviews and tests.
For Individuals: You can evaluate yourself, and see where you stand as an Instructional Design professional. You may also identify areas in which you need to focus upon in order to improve.
