Getting Started on Equip
Assessments and Tests
The simplest way to get started on Equip as a recruiter is to create an assessment and preview it. An assessment is a set of tests that a candidate must take one after another. So, before creating an assessment, you will need to have tests to add to the assessment. Equip has standardized tests, with questions from its own database, that you can add to an assessment. But, to get better acquainted with the platform, we suggest you create a test of your own.
Creating a Custom Test
Tests that you create on your own are called Custom Tests. Let's create a simple MCQ quiz with a single question. For this, you will click on Custom Tests on the left sidebar and then click on New Under Quizzes. You can then add a question with options. The video below shows how you can add a single question to the quiz.
Creating an Assessment
The link to an assessment is what you will share with a candidate. As we have created a test, we can create an assessment and add it to the assessment. The video below is fairly self-explanatory.
Previewing an Assessment
You can preview an assessment after creating it. If you are using Equip's content for a Quiz, you cannot preview the actual questions that the candidate may see, because the questions come from a database that we obviously want to protect. For such tests, the Preview shows Sample Content that is representative of the questions the candidate may be asked. For other tests, including Custom Tests, you can preview the actual questions. Proctoring is disabled while previewing assessments.
Sharing an Assessment Link
Once you have previewed the assessment, you can just click on the Share button. The simplest way of sharing an assessment is to get the link to the assessment from the dialog box. This is a common link that you can share with any of your candidates. Once they click on the link, they will be made to login and will start the assessment. As this happens, you should see your dashboard get updated with usage statistics real-time.
