The question I want to present is - can technology services like interviewstreet.com and Mettl.com be used to pre-screen candidates for nontechnical roles - perhaps by developing some sort of psychometric analysis tests.
Would that be useful enough?
Is anyone using any such online services - would this add value to recruiters if they are able to get candidates pre-screened in some way.
Can consultants create job specific questionnaires to pre-screen candidates if such a service was available at nominal rates?

Dear Mr. Roy
There are so many questionnaire as well as answers are available in the net. If we search then we can get the answers to the questionnaire. Simply copy, paste and change the format or some wordings will be the answer for the online interview until unless we attend the real time online interview.
Someone will be very much fond of writing but they will not speak. Someone will be good speaker but they cannot write two lines without any mistake. Someone may be good academician but he cannot work. So presently personal face to face interview only will be correct way to get the right candidate for the right position. But in future we can expect Online Interview which can decide the entire workforce.

Hmmm... so a pre-screening test platform for non-technical profiles probably does not make that much sense. But they do work marvellously well when it comes to technical profiles.
Let's see what others have to say about this. So doing some sort of pre-screening via a written online test is not a required thing by recruiters?

I liked the way Mettl have shared on its process for preventing cheating . That answers every doubt over its validation.

Every role right from the entry level to the junior-mid level, requires assessments. Most of the firms have their in-house software or buys it from Mafoi or other hiring consultancies.
This will only remain specific to domain knowledge and not social or experiential learning.

With due respect to both Interview street and Mettl, I feel one should check out the site testmyskills with the same url. The products that they offer in terms of online and offline assessment is far more powerful than most products available on the market.
