Step 1

The hiring manager creates a job listing then selects a test battery that can provide Rapid Screening Data™ (RSD) on:

  • Honesty and dependability
  • Counterproductive behaviors like sexual harassment and drug abuse
  • Basic job fit
  • High-performer job fit
  • Applicant ranking score
Step 2 The hiring manager uses standard recruiting or advertising methods to drive applicant traffic to the organization’s private job board—their Total-APS. Total-APS links seamlessly to the company’s career opportunities web site.
Step 3 The hiring manager reviews the Rapid Screening Data™ (RSD) report and decides which applicants will proceed to the next stage of screening or selection.
Step 4 The hiring manager can directly input scores for resumes or interviews.

Screening Tools


Selection tests aid hiring procedures with objective comparative information.  The traditional subjective sources of data including resumes, applications, and interviews, emphasize job related experience, skills, and past performance. Testing provides data about a candidate's “job fit”. Testing can answer these questions more objectively and accurately:

  • Do the candidate’s personality traits align well with the the job's required activities ?
  • Does this person prefer working with people, data, or things?
  • Does they have the abilities/aptitudes that typically required for success in job?
  • What problem areas is the candidate likely to experience in the job?
  • If this person lacks skills or experience, will training likely be successful in improving behavior and performance?
  • Is the candidate a high risk for counterproductive work behaviors like dependability, dishonesty, or sexual harassment?
