Ipsemet games incorporate the best of today’s immersive video games with psychometric expertise. We rigorously test our games to make sure that they are valid and reliable, and fully engage the test taker.
A robust and rigorous science-based approach has been applied from original concept through to product validation and launch. The science is based on new research and models, which have been tested and proven through continuous trials to ensure internal consistency and integrity with no bias or adverse impact. New thinking combined with applied research and science has delivered new metrics and insights.
Ipsemet games highlight characteristics and abilities beyond those obtained from traditional personality or ability tests. These are revealed by the way in which the game is played; the actions, reactions, and decisions, combined with ability to learn, adapt, manage and perform are revealed. Thousands of data points are recorded and analysed by sophisticated data algorithms and predictive statistical models to produce the results.
Skills and behaviours
Psychometric tools must first and foremost deliver valid results. Under the supervision of our occupational psychologists we have run extensive trials which compare the results of our games with traditional psychometric questionnaires and these have shown that our games have statistically validated construct validity on all measured behavioural traits. The highly immersive nature of the game leads to positive buy-in from candidates.
Thousands of data points are captured and recorded during the assessment and all lead to a more in-depth assessment of applicant behaviour and performance. The metrics are collated, analysed and presented in an quick-to-view candidate profile with suggested areas to explore and the candidate receives his or her own report summarising the assessment scores.
