FAQs

FAQs-faq-thumb
Does a customised assessment always include the same question types?

No – the content is completely bespoke based on the organisational and role requirements. Sova works closely with our clients to understand what success looks like and designs assessments that reflect this.  

How do you ensure validity?

We have a database of questions that have demonstrated relaibilty and validity across a range of settings. We also pilot any customised assessments to ensure predictability within the role/organisation.

Can we add our own imagery and videos to a customised assessment?

Absolutely – we can add a different image or video per question and also alongside any informative text. 

How do I know which assessment to use?

Sova will help you to understand what is needed for success in your organisation and role. Once you know this, we will be in a better position to select the best assessments for you. We can take account of how long you want the assessment to be, how you wish to use it and what you need to measure to ensure you have a fit for purpose assessment. It might be that you opt to use our blended assessment approach, which enables you to pick and choose from our assessment database.  

How long do the Sova assessments take to complete?

The short answer is, they vary. We have off the shelf assessments that take 5 minutes and others that take around 25. Further, we can customise an assessment to suit your needs so if you are looking for a short, focused assessment we can provide that but if an in-depth assessment is what you are looking for, we can ensure you have that richness of information too. As an example, the full personality questionnaire takes around 20-25 minutes to complete but if you opt to use the full questionnaire, you have access to 18 different reports. 

What is the reliability of your assessments?

When designing an assessment, we work towards the standards used by the European Federation of Psychologists Association Review Model for the Description and Evaluation of Psychological Tests (The EFPA Review Model). The British Psychological Society use this model. As we have a wide range of assessments, it is difficult to answer in one response but for example, the average internal consistency reliability for the Personality Questionnaire’s standard 18 traits is 0.80, which is well above the EFPA criteria. The Motivation Questionnaire average is 0.84.  As a further example, the test: re-test reliability of our cognitive tests is on average 0.77.

What is the validity of your assessments?

When designing an assessment, we work towards the standards used by the European Federation of Psychologists Association Review Model for the Description and Evaluation of Psychological Tests (The EFPA Review Model). The British Psychological Society use this model. As we have a wide range of assessments, it is difficult to answer in one response plus, there are many different types of validity.  

Our off the shelf assessments have been validated across multiple roles and sectors and we typically advise our clients to pilot and validate assessments where possible. Typical criterion validity studies that we have reported see varied significant correlations that can be classed as ‘moderate’ all the way though to ‘very strong’. Suffice to say, we have a strong and growing evidence base.

What are the benefits of using an off the shelf assessment?

If you are keen to keep costs down and to be ready to go more quickly, our off the shelf assessments can help. Making them available to you on our platform is simple to do and we have plenty of supporting collateral to help you use our assessments. There is no upfront time needed to design the custom assessment for you.  

What training do I need to use your off the shelf assessments?

We ask for there to be someone trained in the use of ability and personality assessment in your organisation but many of our reports have been developed so that hiring managers, for example, can use and interpret them with no risk. We do have some reports that we advocate only being shared with trained users (e.g., the Derailment Report).
