What It Is: PreVisor Front Line Manager is a Web-based pre-hire assessment tool specifically designed to measure job fit for managerial candidates. The tool covers a broad range of capabilities, such as personality, prioritizing, decision-making and cognitive abilities.

Using computer-adaptive testing technology, Front Line Manager selects its questions and simulations on the fly, based on the candidate's previous answers, to create a unique profile of each candidate. The tests consist of audio, video, text-boxes and e-mail in either a question-and-answer style or through realistic role-playing simulations.

Finished tests yield an in-depth report on the candidate's managerial and professional potential, as well as whether he or she is recommended for a management-level position. The report also includes tips on how supervisors can prepare and structure an interview with the successful candidate.

List price is $80 per applicant and volume discounts are available.

Why We Like It: It's just human nature, of course, that candidates are going to offer the answers they think the interviewer will want to hear. Pre-hire assessment tools are an excellent way to gain a measure of objectivity from candidates.

PreVisor's Front Line Manager seems to have a lock on mixing up the right questions and simulations with dynamically changing content to give interviewers the kind of objective, comprehensive overview they need to make critical management hires. For a candidate, the test is easy on the psyche, mixing the right amount of audio, video and text to keep them engaged. For hiring managers, the reports offer a very comprehensive analysis of a candidate's potential.
