We've just launched some exciting under the hood improvements to our logic test! These improvements are designed to keep Alva's logic test best-in-class by applying best practices in machine learning and modern test theory.
We have improved the reliability of our logic test to .94!
We now have more questions for our adaptive algorithm to choose from
We've added 16 new questions to our logic test to help us better calculate logical ability for individuals in the average & high levels of logical ability
We've improved our question selection algorithm, enabling a higher diversity of questions to be shown to test-takers
We have now enriched both our adaptive test algorithm & logical ability score calculations with data from 77,327 tests and 1.54 million responses on Alva's Logical ability test!
Good to know: changes to logic scores
With the increased precision from our logic test improvement:
3 out of 4 of all Alva users will keep the exact same logic ability score
For those test takers whose scores do change, score changes will be no more than a 1 point score difference (1 point higher, or 1 point lower), on our 10 point logic ability scale
The ranking of candidates is mostly unaffected, as are the role fit labels for >95% of job positions. In the cases where candidates score between 8-9-10, there might be small changes in role fit
