SFIA-based Assessments

Over the years we have curated a wide range of generic SFIA role profiles and assessments that are ready to go. You can opt in to receive these assessments with your account when you sign up.

These can help with the process of assessing your employees as you don’t have to build your own assessments. Instead you can rely on our expertise to get the job done.

You can of course build your own assessments and role profiles from scratch giving you all the customisation you may want. However our generic profiles serve as a fantastic baseline.

We also have thousands of SFIA-based questions in our database, written by subject matter experts covering most of the skill codes in the SFIA framework. These can be purchased and built in to your assessments quickly and cost-effectively, avoiding you having to go through the hassle of sourcing your own.


Question Building

All our application requires is the question content. We offer a number of question templates in our question build-area for you to write assessment questions.  You set the instructions and the questions and answers required. Simply add your questions and set up the exam ready to deliver to your candidates or employees anywhere in the world.

Multiple choice, multiple response, weighted, yes-no, place in order, fill in the blanks, matching, drag and drop, exercise, free text responses, hotspots and even typing tests. These types of questions are available to include in any assessment offering a wide variety of challenges for the candidate.

Question references can easily be added to assist with version control. If you would like us to take care of the build for you, we would be pleased to discuss your requirements.

There is a facility to add images, positioned accordingly within a question, and upload scenarios within a PDF document that can be viewed within the related question.

Learning outcomes can be added to each question in order to indicate skills gaps and any further information to the candidates if they get the question wrong. Questions can be edited in real-time. If someone spots an error it can simply be edited and saved immediately.


Candidates

Registration can be handled in two ways: a self-registration page for candidates to enter their own information, or, if you wish to control the candidate registration information, there are facilities to manually enter details or bulk upload from a designed template.

Candidates are able to enter their own e-portfolio area where assessments are assigned and taken. The administration of each assessment will dictate what can and cannot be seen. For instance, the administrator may want to restrict the visibility of the results. They may also wish to allow additional documentation to be available for a particular assessment.

We also offer an additional service of a dedicated portal bypassing the ValidateSkills.com domain, allowing for a full branded experience.
