Instantly and objectively evaluate written communication skills

Do you need to hire people who can effectively communicate with customers or colleagues by email, web chat, text, and similar nonvoice methods? Then SelectWrite can help. This assessment uses artificial intelligence and a rigorously-developed standardized scoring system to instantly and objectively evaluate a job candidate’s ability to write clearly and effectively.

SelectWrite is very straightforward: Job candidates write a response to one or two prompts, and have 20 minutes to complete each one.

That’s it. The advanced scoring system takes it from there, instantly providing you with an overall hiring recommendation and information about six key aspects of their writing:

  • Accuracy and Completeness — How well do applicants address important elements of the writing prompt?
  • Purpose and Impact — How well do they convey and support their main point?
  • Writing Mechanics and Grammar —Do they use correct grammar and punctuation? How well do they spell?
  • Vocabulary and Word Choice — Are they using words correctly and appropriately?
  • Business Writing Style — How clearly they write and do they use an appropriate tone?
  • Organization — How well are their responses structured and organized?

SelectWrite provides a consistent, fair, and legally defensible process for evaluating writing skills. Scoring does not vary, as it does with manually scored tests. The online platform enables onsite and remote testing, and integrates with Taleo® and other applicant tracking software.

Please note that data entry/keyboarding speed and accuracy must be evaluated separately.
