Typing test 

Typing test
The typing test is available as a question type for all Vervoe plans

The typing test is a practical assessment measuring a candidate’s typing speed and accuracy, customers can now implement a typing test right into their Vervoe assessments! The Typing Test is available as a question type for all plans (including the free trial)! It can be added to an assessment from within the “Create” editor. The test comes with the preconfigured copy for both English and Spanish. The test is locked at 2 minutes to complete and once the candidate begins their first keystroke, the 2-minute timer will begin. As the candidate types, the incorrect text will highlight in red and candidates will get two attempts. 

Candidate share cards 

Candidate compare cards
You can now share candidate share cards with stakeholders who don’t have Vervoe access

Candidate cards are shareable report cards that let you deep-dive into a candidate’s skills, attributes, and responses. This update allows you to quickly share your shortlisted candidates, even with stakeholders who do not have Vervoe access. 

Our revamped candidate share cards make collaborating, comparing and scoring candidates seamless. You can share one or multiple assessments the candidate has taken, and the best part is you can share results while hiding the candidates’ names to reduce bias. This update also includes the candidate integration card for employers using Vervoe via an ATS. 

Close assessment by date

Deadline by date
You can now close assessments and applications automatically on a specific date

Deadline by date allows customers to close assessments and applications automatically on a specific date. This also means assessment links will automatically disable once the selected date has passed, meaning candidates won’t spend time on assessments for roles that have already been filled.
