The Assessment Process
Sift HR exclusively uses Wiley’s PXT Select™ assessments to improve hiring and employee development. PXT Select™ leverages decades of performance data across small, mid-size, and Fortune 500 organizations to guide validated hiring and development decisions.
Your assessments will be scored against the job you are hiring for or developing talent in. PXT Select™ uses cutting-edge psychometrics and computer-adaptive items to evaluate key job-related constructs and provide easy-to-understand reports complete with comparable fit scores, targeted interview questions, and actionable narrative to guide hiring and development decisions. Implementation is easy and we guide you each step of the way.

Our Base, Expand, and Enterprise packages are recommended, turn-key solutions that leverage validated data to determine assessment scoring for your roles.
Sift Custom Analytics provides an option for clients who prefer scoring models based entirely on their internal performance data. With Sift Custom Analytics, we assess your role incumbents and create scoring models for new hires based on the incumbents’ assessment scores and performance. Twenty or more incumbents are required.

when you find fit
When you find fit, hiring improves and applicants find fulfilling work—everyone wins and PXT Select™ makes this happen. In addition to providing fit scores and clear narrative, it improves interviewing with targeted, behaviorally-based questions.
The constructs PXT Select™ measures are based on what works. Frank Schmidt and John Hunter produced a seminal meta-analysis by analyzing all studies predicting performance across industry, time, and place. They evaluated thousands of worker samples covering more than 500 diverse jobs and found that cognitive ability, one of the hallmarks of our assessment, explains an average of 26% of the variation in employee performance across jobs—much more than unstructured, conversational interviewing. The rest of our assessment, key personality traits, interests, and structured interviews, further improves performance prediction. It all works together to help you find fit and hire better than you could with resume reviews and interviewing alone. Help your candidates and help yourself with PXT Select™ with expert support always included.
