Testing Methodology

IKM combines standard and unique skills assessment methodologies to ensure the level of detail, sophistication and length of assessment match your individual requirements.

When considering assessments for employee and employment testing and screening, it is important to explore the testing methodology used. It is the methodology that determines the accuracy and relevance of the test results, the duration required to conduct the test, and the overall level of feedback provided on the assessment-takers skills, knowledge and abilities.

These methodologies offer different reports and features, and are available across various industries and disciplines. IKM is known worldwide for its unique Adaptive Methodology that is unsurpassed in its field.
