Is Assessment Technology Working?

| E:232

Contact: [email protected]

Back in September 2018, I interviewed industry consultant Bas Van De Haterd about his research work exploring emerging assessment technologies. The assessment market is moving exceptionally quickly, and I wanted to invite Bas back, a year later, to update us on what has changed.

In the interview, we discuss:

• The problems with traditional methods of assessment

• Making sense of evolving technologies

• The issue with black box algorithms

• Are micro-expressions useful?

• The power of game-based assessments

• Using technology to broaden pools of talent

Bas also shares several case studies from employers achieving considerable success with new assessment technology and give us his view on the future.
