But how do you know if they have the right skills? 

Multiple choice tests won’t tell you. Personality tests
reveal suitability, but not competency.

Job Ready. Not Test Ready.

We don’t need to know how people test. 
We need to know what people can do—efficiently
and accurately—to fulfill our missions, grow our
businesses, and adapt to change. 


A New Economy

Our competitive, information-based economy requires employees who can think creatively, use evidence to support their solutions to complex problems, and communicate clearly in a variety of contexts. 

To understand if candidates or employees can do the work required, we need to see how they tackle complex, open-ended problems like those they will encounter on the job.

Using sophisticated machine learning and data analytics,  Authess delivers this capability.
