Admissions Filtering Software

Proven to reduce the amount of time spent interviewing by more than 50%.

• Automated filtering to reduce the volume of interviews
• Use of software to reduce the time of each interview

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

You can create your own set of unique questions, or you can access a bank of tried and tested questions.

How can it reduce the amount of interview time with each candidate?

Assessments can be set up before or as part of the interview day, which can be automatically marked and can provide feedback on candidates behaviours and attitudes.
