What are Online Ability Assessments and why are they required?
Ability assessments are online tools that are designed to assess individuals and measure the differences between others. They are objective, standardised instruments that achieve this precision by using well-controlled, uniform methods of administration and scoring.
There are two types of assessments used by Melbourne & Olympic Parks:
1. Those designed to assess personal qualities such as personality, temperament, values and interests (Competency); and
2. Those designed to measure potential and/or predicted performance, such as ability, aptitude or attainment (Ability).
Melbourne & Olympic Parks uses competence and ability assessments to support decisions on selection and placement in conjunction with other relevant inputs, information, tools and processes available. This assists us to add rigour to our recruitment process and to select candidates that are aligned with the role and our organisation’s values and behaviours.
