The Assessment Terminal is an award-winning AIR app produced for Barclays Capital as
part of their graduate assessment and recruitment process. In it
candidates are tested on their response to a number of fictional problems and
assignments delivered via 'email', 'instant message' and video within the terminal app over the course of a real day.
Alongside the assessment terminal is an integrated content management and candidate tracking application (below).
The assessment terminal records data and metrics that are read by the CMS so that the recruitment team can later analyse and grade the results to identify best candidates.
Each candidate is registered and photographed using a web cam and given a unique id so we can track them as they complete the assessment day. The recruitment team then have access to candidate responses and can assess them using a series of in-built questionnaires. The questionnaire data can be accessed in the form of charts and graphs
alongside each candidates photo and
can then be exported as csv data for import to spreadsheets to assist in the decision making process.
After a successful first year we recently updated the app to iOS for the 2011 intake. The applications formed part of an initiative that garnered a few awards in 2010:
- Best Graduate Recruitment award at the CIPDs, 2010
- Recruiter Awards: Most effective use of technology, 2010
- Winner, Graduate Selection and Assessment – AGR Awards, 2010
