Assessio helps your organization succeed.

Whether you are finding the right candidate, developing internal talent, building high performance teams or creating functional management, we can help you. Tools and tests in our Ascend platform are based on the latest scientific research, helping you build a successful organization with zero talent waste.

Greenhouse Recruiting's integration with Assessio allows you to seamlessly add assessments from the Ascend platform to a job's interview plan. In this article, we will cover how to:

  • Enable the Greenhouse/Assessio Integration
  • Add Assessio Stage to Job’s Interview Plan
  • Configure the Assessio Stage
  • Send and Review the Test

Enable the Greenhouse/Assessio Integration

To start, you need to log in to Ascend using an account with organization admin privileges and create a new API key (aka API token) in Settings > Security tab.


Once you have created an API key, click here to open a ticket with Greenhouse.

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 Assessio Stage to Job’s Interview Plan

Once the Greenhouse/Assessio integration is enabled for your organization, you will be able to add the Assessio 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 Assessio stage. When finished, click Add to apply the stage to the job's interview plan.

Configure Assessio Stage

Once the stage has been added to the job's interview plan, click Edit. Use the provided drop-down menu to choose assessments (aka project templates) that you have previously set up in the Ascend platform.

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 Ascend. 

Send and Review the Test

When candidates are moved into the Assessio interview stage, Greenhouse will display a Send Test link.

Note: When you send a test from Greenhouse, the interview instructions are actually sent by Assessio.

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 test result.



After you click on the Interview Kit on the candidate’s profile, you’ll be taken to a page where the URL is available to view and download the PDF report from Ascend.
