Excel Question Type, Anti-Cheating Measures And More

We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new embedded Excel based question type, updated integrations and more ways to combat the rise of cheating via tools like ChatGPT.  

Here at Vervoe, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to enhance the user experience and push the boundaries of our technology stack. As a result, we are thrilled to announce some new and exciting features  we think our customers will absolutely adore.

Excel Question Type

You asked and we listened. Our latest Excel question type allows customers to natively embed MS Excel into any assessment. Whether you already love the Google Sheets question type and just need some advanced features and functions, or it’s just an application your candidates and organization are more familiar with, we’ve got you – so you can get that Excel expert.

98% of candidates love using Vervoe because they get the chance to truly show their skills. This question type will help you test advanced functions of MS Excel like macros, pivot tables and linking worksheets. While it’s up to you to choose how you use this exciting new feature, the aim is to learn how proficient a candidate is with this system and to see if they can decode numbers into something meaningful. 

In addition, some roles and industries like Finance may require Excel more specifically than others, such as using other data analysis tools for specific tasks, or Google Sheets for a more general range of business tasks. We believe the closer the skills assessments and job simulations reflect a true day in the life – the better.

Now, MS Excel and Google Sheets are both supported applications in Vervoe, and can be directly added in Vervoe assessments. As most users already know, Excel supports advanced features and functionality, and can be used across business functions to store, calculate, perform data analysis, visualizations, transform or even code – truly the swiss army knife of MS applications! Find it in the Create editor today.
