IMI - Integrity Measuring Instrument
Designed for the South African job market.
The test is a shortened version of the IP200, a registered psychometric test.
Used specifically for screening purposes the test is valid, reliable, culture free and fair.
The test takes 30-40 minutes to complete and is available in English, Afrikaans, Zulu, N.Sotho, Xhosa and an English support version for candidates who are second language or below a standard eight level.
Reports are computer generated and easy to interpret
The test items are BASED ON SCIENTIFICALLY ESTABLISHED FACTOR STRUCTURE measuring the following:
Reliability and dependability
Violation of policy, rules and regulations
The test also has a built-in lie detector to establish if the candidate has been honest when answering the test.
CONDUCTING A TEST
The respondent must be willing to partake voluntarily.
The respondent must be totally relaxed and in a peaceful state of mind.
The physical environment must be conducive to an uninterrupted, quiet and comfortable completion of the questionnaire.
The candidate must understand that this test must be answered as honestly as possible. If one is dishonest there are indicators which will pick that up. Inconsistency in answering or deliberate attempts to manipulate the results will be highlighted in the report.
If the respondent is interrupted during completion of the questionnaire, the resulting profile may be invalid.
The respondent must be encouraged to answer the questions instinctively and not to ponder each question too long. The first answer that comes to mind is the best.
It should be kept in mind that no test can be used in isolation and therefore the integrity test is supposed to be an additional hiring tool in the recruitment and selection process but if it is used carefully it has the following benefits:
Saves interviewing time
Fewer theft terminations
Reduced labour turnover
Less management time
Fewer disciplinary incidents
Fewer rule violations
Fewer customer complaints
Fewer training failures
