Science has proven that testing candidate on a sample of actual work to be done for a job has a better correlation with work performance than indirect measures such as IQ tests, personality tests, or education level. TestDome provides a platform for automated pre-employment skill testing. To test if a candidate will be good at work, TestDome gives candidates a sample of actual work.
Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with TestDome allows your organization to seamlessly add a TestDome assessment to a job's interview plan. In this article, we will cover how to:
- Enable the Greenhouse/TestDome Integration
- Add TestDome Stage to Job’s Interview Plan
- Configure the TestDome Stage
- Send and Review the Test
Enable the Greenhouse/TestDome Integration
Note: Do not send the API key in this initial email. API Keys allow access to sensitive data and must be kept secret. If an API Key is shared in an email and your email is intercepted by a malicious third party or your email account is hacked, the hacker would be able to view and access your API Key. For this reason, we require API Keys to be shared securely using SendSafely, Greenhouse’s secure data transfer platform.
The Greenhouse Support Team will respond with a SendSafely link for you to enter your API key. A notification will be sent to the Greenhouse Support Team after you have entered your API key and they will email you to confirm that your API key has been set up in your account and your integration is enabled.
Add TestDome Stage to Job’s Interview Plan
Once the Greenhouse/TestDome integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the TestDome assessment as an Interview stage.
To do this for an existing job, navigate to a job (All Jobs>Job Name) and click Job Setup from the Job navigation bar.
From the Job Setup page, navigate to Interview Plan on the left-hand panel. Scroll down the page and click + Add a Stage.
From the Add Stage dialog box, select the TestDome stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.
Configure TestDome Stage
Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit Take Home Test. Use the provided drop-down menu to choose assessments that you have previously set up in TestDome.
Select the appropriate assessment and assign at least one Greenhouse user to grade/review submitted assessments. When finished, click Save.
Note: Keep in the mind that all configuration of the assessment itself, as well as the email template, will need to be done in TestDome.
Send and Review the Test
When candidates are moved into the TestDome interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.
Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by TestDome.
The status of the assessment will be viewable in Greenhouse:
Once the candidate has submitted their test, the Interview Kit will contain a link to view the submitted test on TestDome.
After you click on the Interview Kit on the candidate’s profile, you will be taken to a page where the URL is available to view the test results on TestDome.
