Test Structure: The Big Five
eTest is based on the Big Five model of personality structure. Research has strongly supported the relationship of these factors to job performance. The Big Five measures traits such as extraversion, emotional reactivity, behavioral control, agreeableness, and complexity. It also provides predictive performance-related dimensions derived from actual managerial ratings (such as dependability, interpersonal effectiveness, stress tolerance, and others). In addition, we can provide professional support and expertise for developing local norms and customized prediction indices specific to your business needs.
