Prevue Personality Inventory

Based upon the Big 5, the recognised personality scales for occupational assessment instruments. The major scales are Independence, Conscientiousness, Extraversion and Emotional Stability, (ICES).

Time to complete: 20-30 minutes on average (untimed)


The Prevue benchmarking process helps identify and define those cognitive, motivational, and personality attributes that are associated with success on the job - Job-Fit.

A candidate’s measured attributes are compared to the benchmark yielding an overall percentage match of suitability, a Total Person narrative and a summary of each measured characteristic.

The overall percentage match figure helps management rank applicants in the order of their job suitability. The Prevue Selection Report generates behavioural interview questions specific to the benchmark.

How Are Benchmarks Created?

Prevue benchmarks are customised to the organization's job specifications. This is accomplished in several ways:

    1. Job Description Survey – Completed by people who “know” the job (15 mins).
    2. Concurrent Validation Study – Test current high performers.
    3. Combination – Combining the above into one benchmark.
    4.  Manual – Suitable for job experts

The Prevue benchmark process is completely self-contained, enabling clients to use this feature at any time and any location. The one-off benchmarking fee for each job equals the cost of one assessment.

Report Options

Several reporting options are available, all included for each processed candidate:

*Approach to Work
*Succession Planning - using candidates or positions
