Organizations have the possibility to validate candidates’ results from the adaptive logic test. This can only be done once per candidate, and Alva strongly recommend administering the validation test on-site under supervision. Best practice is to incorporate the validation test late in the recruitment process, when the candidate visits the office for an interview for example.
The validation test consists of 20 tasks with a time limit of 2 minutes per task. It takes between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. The candidate will get new tasks that they have not been exposed to in the original test.
After the candidate completes the validation test, the administrator gets a side-by-side comparison of the results along with guidance on how to interpret potential differences.
