Creating Surveys Using TestMaker

Updated by Amy Thomas

Click here to learn about using TestMaker tests to assess your candidates' skills during the recruitment process.

Did you know that you can also use TestMaker to create surveys? Here are some of the ways our clients have used TestMaker:

  • Onboarding tool: check in with your new hires to see how they are settling in to their new role.
  • Training: survey new employees to track how successful your training program is.
  • Exit interview: survey departing employees to learn more about their reasons for leaving your organization.
  • Employee engagement: survey employees to measure their engagement with your organization.

Create a TestMaker Survey

If you are using TestMaker as part of one of these processes, create a TestMaker survey that you can send out to your candidates or employees.

In your Criteria account, click Manage and select “TestMaker Tests”.

Click Create TestMaker Test and select “TestMaker Test”.

For Type, select “Survey” from the options presented. We recommend keeping the survey untimed. Once you have completed the relevant fields, click “Proceed to add questions”.

Add questions and move them around to suit your needs. You can include images and links to documents or other sites in your question. This might include a map of your office, your organizational chart, a document outlining your company values and so on.

Use the hamburger icon to drag and drop your questions to move them around. Survey recipients will be presented the questions in the order listed, unless you have selected to randomize the question order delivery.

Click “Save and Return” to be redirected to the TestMaker Tests page. Your survey has been created; it can now be added to a test battery for candidates or employees to be invited to complete.

Onboarding, training, engagement or exit interview

If you are creating a survey that will be sent to employees to complete, creating the test battery, creating the job and sending invitations follows the same process as for setting up testing for recruitment.

Create a test battery that only includes the TestMaker survey; your employees will not be completing psychometric assessments as well.

Leverage this newly created battery when setting up a new Job.
