What is a Performance Model?
The Performance Model is the optimal range of Cognitive, Behavioral, and Interest assessment scores for a particular position. Think of it like the “ideal employee” for a given position. And since different jobs require different traits, the Performance Model varies by position. The Performance Model’s range of scores is typically based on research that evaluates the assessment results from a group of people who have a similar position. The PXT Select product looks at both the candidate’s assessment results and the Performance Model when providing feedback on the candidate’s fit for the position.
What is the Performance Model Library?
The publisher analyzed performance data for more than 30,000 individuals to create 21 ready-to-use models. While the library isn’t complete, these 21 models represent a large majority of the core jobs available. As we collect additional performance data, we will continue to add models to the library.
