With the PXT Select™ Non-Cognitive assessment, you can choose to evaluate job-fit based on soft skills and cultural fit while benefiting from the same scientific rigor that the full PXT Select assessment is known for.

What Is the PXT Select Non-Cognitive Assessment?

The PXT Select Non-Cognitive assessment measures how well an individual fits specific jobs in your organization based on their behavioral traits and interests.

The PXT Select Non-Cognitive assessment works well when hiring and selecting candidates in situations where cognition has already been pre-established or when the cognitive ability is not a requirement at the point of hiring. Organizations can also use the assessment for onboarding, coaching, strategic workforce planning, and much more.
