Why you should use an LMS for online pre-employment testing
Pre-employment testing alone is not enough to ensure the success of your employees and your business. Instead, when paired within a broader culture of learning, an organization can expect great outcomes.
Moving your pre-hire assessment tests online will put you on the right path. And using an LMS as software to administer online pre-employment testing will make the process easier and more efficient. An LMS will:
By using an LMS as a tool for administering pre-employment testing, you can manage all testing and training throughout the employee life cycle. From pre-employment skills testing, onboarding to compliance and ongoing training, you can manage it all online and from one central location.
An LMS can automate tasks and connect with other software to simplify processes and save you time. For example, you’ll never need to individually grade a pre-hire assessment test again, as the LMS will do it for you.

What is pre-employment testing & assessment?
Pre-employment testing is a data-driven way to evaluate and assess the personality traits and skills of prospective employees. Unlike resumes and interviews, pre-employment testing is a far more reliable, objective and predictive way to know whether a candidate will perform well in a particular role and workplace.
One of the most important benefits of pre-employment testing (for both large organizations and smaller businesses) is that it makes the hiring process much more efficient. Instead of scanning dozens or hundreds of applications, skills testing and pre-employment assessments will help you track, filter and ultimately, hire the best candidates.
Testing employees before hiring them also makes decision-makers feel more confident in their choice.
The types of pre-employment tests that help you find the right hire
There are generally three main types of pre-employment testing that any business can use: aptitude tests, personality tests and skills tests. These pre-employment assessment tests each measure a different aspect of the potential candidate.
A pre-employment aptitude test measures a candidate’s general intelligence in terms of critical thinking, problem-solving as well as their ability to learn new information.
The use of personality tests in hiring, on the other hand, has a different purpose. These tests are used to assess whether the candidate’s temperament is suitable for the position they are applying for.
Pre-employment skills testing evaluates job-related skills the candidate already has, like verbal, math, communication or computer language skills. These tests reliably predict job performance and can be used for entry-level to upper-management positions.
Which tests should I use? A few pre-employment testing examples
The type of pre-employment assessment tests you'll get most value from will depend on the resources available to you, the size of your organization and the role you're trying to fill.
For entry-level positions and/or small businesses
Administering a basic job-related skill-test is perfectly suitable and informative way to improve your hiring decisions.
For mid- to upper-management and/or mid-sized businesses
An aptitude test will be able to give you a better prediction of a candidate’s job performance. If resources allow, combine with a personality or skills test for a fuller picture.
For large organizations, administering online pre-employment testing is almost a golden standard. But to feel even more assured about hiring decisions, organizations who use recruitment agencies to hire staff can opt to include pre-employment training as part of the hiring process.
What is pre-employment training?
In contrast to pre-employment tests that assess and evaluate skills and traits of prospective candidates, pre-employment training aims to prepare candidates for a position.
Traditionally, this kind of pre-job training has been offered by universities to graduating students to prepare them for work.
But today it's becoming popular for recruitment agencies (in cooperation with an organization) to offer pre-employment training programs to prospective candidates as part of the hiring process. These training programs are usually tailored to the organization and used to develop the necessary skills candidates will need to succeed in the position from day one.
