Testimonials For Integral Talent Systems

  • I worked with ITS on two projects while at Google and LinkedIn: the first, building and designing a career development tool project, the second, a measurement strategy project for one of our global learning programs. ITS was integral in the success of both projects, providing innovative thinking, a collaborative partnership, and timely deliveries.

  • PXT Select

    PXT Select is a multiple-choice, online assessment that measures the candidate’s cognitive
    abilities, behavioral traits, and interests. To take the assessment, candidates receive an email
    invitation with a link that directs them to the online Assessment Center. Once there, they will
    be given instructions on how to proceed.

    The PXT SelectTM assessment is based on over 20 years of research and can provide
    organizations with a fuller picture of candidates. It provides the hiring manager with insight
    into a candidate’s cognitive abilities, behavioral traits, and interests, including tips about the
    candidate’s potential job fit and relevant job-specific interview questions.

    In order to maximize the assessment’s precision with the fewest number of questions, the PXT
    Select assessment uses computerized adaptive testing (CAT). This means the system
    successively selects questions based on what it knows about the candidate from his or her
    previous responses.
