Conscientiousness Test

The Conscientiousness module measures a candidate’s tendency to be rule-abiding, well-organized, hard-working, and confident, as well as to persist through unpleasant tasks.

It is intended to measure a candidate’s conscientiousness through situational judgment test items. The Conscientiousness module demonstrates a candidate’s behaviors or tendencies as they relate to the Five Factor Model of personality (i.e., Agreeableness, Extraversion, Conscientiousness, Openness, and Emotional Stability). We recommend that you use this module in combination with other selection and hiring processes to measure only those knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics that are 1) job-related and 2) required for a candidate’s first day on the job.
