Wonderlic, the premier pre-employment assessment company has announced the deployment of new online assessments for Spanish speaking test takers. The popular Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test is now officially available in seven Spanish dialects that include: Standard Spanish, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela.
The Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test is a short-form measure of cognitive ability, the most accurate predictor of employment success. While easy to administer and score, it provides valuable predictive information about a candidate’s ability to perform. The Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test uses the latest advances in psychometrics and technology to support quicker and better informed hiring decisions in today’s fast-paced market.
In addition to the Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test, three of the company’s personality assessments are now available to clients in Standard Spanish:
The Wonderlic Five-Factor Personality Profile predicts successful job performance using five primary dimensions of personality: Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Stability and Openness to Experience. It forecasts important workplace behavior and compares your candidates to occupational personality types.
The Wonderlic Seven-Factor Personality Profile is particularly effective for positions requiring significant client interaction such as customer service, telemarketing and sales. It measures seven primary traits: Emotional Intensity, Intuition, Recognition Motivation, Sensitivity, Assertiveness, Trust and Exaggeration.
The Wonderlic Behavioral Risk Profile quickly measures important personality traits for entry-level positions. This test assesses an individual’s willingness to perform productively and cooperatively on the job, and avoid engaging in counterproductive behavior.
