Accurately assessing the skills of candidates is one of the biggest challenges while recruiting for technical job roles. Screening the candidates based on resumes or telephonic interviews often leads to the candidates being sent directly to the hiring manager without considering their aptitude and domain-based skills and expertise. It increases the recruitment cost as well as time to hire. This time-consuming process may also result in project delays, which can become very expensive for the business.

MeritTrac’s automated assessment solutions can streamline the recruitment process in IT companies. Our scientifically designed Python aptitude test can be used to precisely assess a candidates’ skills and knowledge and filter the best-fit candidates for the job roles in a short span without any personal bias.

Advantages of using Aptitude Tests in Hiring

Improved Hiring

Aptitude tests can measure the strengths and weaknesses of candidates and select only those who have desired skill sets that match the requirements. These tests can also be customised depending on the job role. Python aptitude test designed by MeritTrac can help recruiters find and retain the right candidates during campus as well as lateral hiring.

Cost-Effective

Recruitment is a costly process and the expenditure increases dramatically with the number of candidates. So, it is vital to filter out unsuitable candidates during the initial stages of the recruitment process. It can be made possible by using aptitude assessments to evaluate the skills and capabilities of candidates. 

Reduced Interview Time

MeritTrac’s assessments are prepared by an expert team of psychometricians, statisticians and subject matter experts. These assessments can be customised as per the skill sets to be evaluated and help you filter out qualified candidates. So, hiring managers will only need to interview qualified candidates instead of spending the time and effort on each and every candidate who applies for the position.

Applications of Python Aptitude Tests

Our unique suite of assessment solutions can be used for all kinds of recruitments including fresher, and lateral hiring. When it comes to hiring the right candidates for IT jobs, cognitive skills are as important as domain expertise. These skills will determine a candidate’s ability to perform in challenging situations, and solve problems as they arise. MeritTrac’s assessment solutions are designed to evaluate a candidate’s coding skills as well as aptitude skills. Apart from domain-based questions, MeritTrac’s Python aptitude tests include questions to assess numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, logical reasoning, situational judgement, inductive reasoning and error identification.

Our aptitude tests can also be used for on-project training and succession planning. Coding tests can be designed based on project requirements. The test results will help trainers identify skill and knowledge gaps, which can be used to create a training plan.
