Testing Methods

USP-D test procedures produce a largely objective picture of strengths, fields of learning and potential. The participants in test procedures appreciate the measurement quality and objectivity of tests. The accuracy of the evaluations also enjoys great acceptance among them. The use of test procedures obscures subjective assessment elements such as sympathy and antipathy, gender, presence and appearance.

Personnel managers and personnel developers round out the personal picture in the assessment center, management appraisal or job interview with an objective test procedure. Important success factors are the selection, integration, and process embedding of test procedures. As for all other types of assessments, participants require clear information about the results and action instructions for their future procedure and development.

USP-D offers various testing methods as important service components in the course of potential analyses. When selecting the test procedure, we pay attention to which product suits your goal and the culture of your company. Our testing methods serve the purposes of suitability diagnostics and potential assessment. A valid USP-D potential assessment rests not only on the test procedure, but can be used to effectively complement the assessment of future forecasts and fields of learning.
