TestGorilla product overview

TestGorilla is a pre-employment testing and assessment solution that provides organizations with tools to screen candidates. It identifies the best candidates for each job role at the start of the recruitment process. Using TestGorilla, businesses can save valuable time, make hiring decisions without bias, and avoid expensive hiring missteps.

The platform’s tests replace subjective and incomplete CVs with objective, reliable, and fair results that measure aptitude, practical job skills, culture add, and motivation. Its wide-ranging, scientifically-validated assessments allow recruiters and HR managers to hire top talent faster.

TestGorilla leads the shift to a more professional and data-focused HR culture. It ranks applicants according to test scores certified by its experts, enabling HR teams to rely on good data to make critical decisions, not just their gut feeling.

Science-backed tests

TestGorilla’s advanced statistical algorithms analyze key indicators that verify and improve tests on an ongoing basis. The platform uses measures such as Cronbach’s alpha to track and confirm the internal consistency of the questions.

Bias-free testing

The software follows the standards of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to remove unconscious bias from the hiring process. HR teams can see the best candidates ranked the highest regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, or age. TestGorilla also periodically utilizes differential item functioning (DIF) studies performed on data collected from candidates. As a result, it continually eliminates potential adverse impacts from the recruitment process.

Custom questions

Organizations can craft custom questions to request more specific information from candidates. While TestGorilla’s pre-written tests can assess and score candidates based on various skills, custom questions give the opportunity to ask questions about the job role. Recruitment teams can receive the answers in their preferred method. Candidates can answer custom questions using long-form texts, file uploads, or video responses.

Candidate invites

TestGorilla enables hiring teams to connect with candidates by sending email invites directly from the platform or straight from their ATS. It also supports sending multiple invites with a single click and enables candidates to sign up through a direct link.
