  • PXT Select™ Authorized Partner

    Offers an all inclusive approach which utilizes powerful assessment data to help organizations of all sizes effectively select, onboard, coach and develop their team members and leaders. This customizable solution gives you the freedom to unlock the value of additional reports without worrying about extra costs.
    PXT Select ™ uses Computer adaptive testing to evaluate a candidate’s level of abilities by selecting questions based on the candidate’s previous answers. For example, if Sally answered multiple “medium” difficult questions correctly, the system would prompt her to answer a series of “difficult” questions. Not only does this format maximize assessment precision, but also accelerates the entire assessment process for the candidate. From the candidate’s perspective, the difficulty of the assessment seems to tailor itself to his or her level of cognitive and behavioral trait expression.
