Myth or Fact? Shorter Pre-Hire Testing Time Reduces the Number of Candidates That Drop out of the Process

downloadFurstPerson research shows that the factor in the candidate testing process which is most responsible for influencing dropout rate is not the length of the test, but the location of testing (in-office vs. off-site/at home).  Testing on-site has a dropout rate of approximately 2-3% versus an off-site rate of 40-43%.  Looking at data, FurstPerson adjusted the test battery process from 75 minutes to 45 minutes for an organization with both an off-site and on-site option.  Shortening the test battery time by 30 minutes had no effect on the dropout rate, either on-site or off-site.
