Admissions Filtering Software

Halving the amount of time spent interviewing, by filtering out inappropriate candidates before the interview stage…

We have worked on a number of pilots over the last year which have effectively reduced the amount of time spent interviewing – realising academic time to spend on other activity.

Automated Filtering

Multiple choice questions and short answers with identifiable key words are automatically marked, given admissions tutors an additional metrics to select for interview, or admissions teams can filter out applications before candidate interview lists are constructed.

It is possible to use the software for open text fields, however this will need to be manually marked, reducing the benefits from having fully automated filtering.

How does it work?

Individuals are given a unique link for an assessment which is only live for a short period of time (these can be changed daily or weekly). They are asked to complete the assessment without help or assistance. Strongly worded emails are used to prevent anyone seeking help, however for universities wanting to have 100% confidence that no assistance was given, applicants can also be recorded taking the assessment.

What types of questions are included?

We have a small bank of questions that you can chose from, including:

  • Knowledge specific about the area/course being studies
  • Behaviours and attitudes
  • Numeracy

We advise that you create your own set of unique questions.

Free Pilot

We are offering a free pilot to all of our existing customers. New customers will need to pay a £300 admin fee to help contribute toward the cost of initial training and to obtain and send out unique exam codes.

Case Study: University of Cumbria

A pilot with the University of Cumbria has resulted in the reduction of time spent interviewing candidates for Midwifery and Paramedics courses by over 52%!

Applicants were requested to complete an online assessment consisting of multiple choice questions. The aim was to check their understanding of the course they had applied for, as well as some baseline numeracy and behaviours/attitudes questions.
