(PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Helm and Associates, Inc., the publisher of over 20 pre-employment aptitude, attitude, and personality tests for business use, announces improvements to their Teller Test Results Report.
The Teller Test is used by banks, credit unions, and financial institutions throughout the English-speaking world to measure a person’s aptitude for the core job requirement of tellers: the ability to understand and count money accurately under pressure or amid distraction.
The improvements to the Teller Test Results Report use color and an improved graphic display of the weighted Teller Test Score to make it easy to understand at a glance how an applicant’s score compares to the thousands of other people who have taken the Teller Test.
In addition, more explanation about the individual’s potential job performance is provided, and the customized descriptions of the individual’s work style, best placement suggestions, and training needs continue to be included in the report.
A sample report, with highlighted explanations of the improvements, can be seen by clicking on the provided link, and is included with this press release. Click here to see the improved Teller Test report
The Teller Test, administered over the Internet, has been administered to over 35,000 tellers and teller applicants since 2000. It has been in wide use by banks and credit unions, from single location to multi-location organizations and community banks, since 1991. The Teller Test Results Report provides hiring managers in banks, credit unions, and financial institutions with an objective and reliable evaluation of a person’s aptitude for the core job requirement of tellers. The Teller Test is intended to be used in addition to all other job-relevant information during the selection or promotion process.
The Teller Test was developed by Dr. Kurt Helm, a licensed and certified industrial psychologist, and was validated in 1990-1991 in studies that were conducted of successfully employed tellers at several large and mid-sized banks in different areas of the country. The Teller Test meets or exceeds the criteria set forth by the U.S. EEOC in Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures, and the American Psychological Association’s Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing.
