Skillwise Academy provides Technical Assessments that is template driven, which is usually used to check the candidate’s skill competency. The questions are more towards the job role description and the required primary and secondary skills. These assessments are used to evaluate the candidates for technical or specialist based on the job descriptions. The assessments not only to assess the technical knowledge but how the candidate applies the thought process and on the approach to solve problems. The candidate is also evaluated on how they demonstrate the interpersonal and communication skills.

Skillwise follows the Competency Assessment Framework model in it manual and well as tool based assessment methods. The key competency areas of Knowledge, Understanding Application, Analysis and Proficiency are mapped alongside the domain functional skills. This gives the assessor the scope to assess the candidate in functional competence and behavioural competency. Further within this the candidate can be assessed deeper on the threshold competency of coordination, planning, analytical thinking, teamwork, presentation skills, learning orientation and as well as differentiating competency like openness and influencing skills.

Skillwise Technical Competency Assessment Method

Skillwise Communication Proficiency Assessment provides three kinds of Communication Proficiency Tests for candidates based on the proficiency required for the job. It could be either on spoken communication skills, written communication skills or both written and spoken communication skills

Spoken communication areas of assessment are in Language Fluency, Sentence formation, Vocabulary, Pronunciation, Voice modulation and tone of speaking.

Written Communication areas of assessment are on the candidates’ ability to write elaborately using appropriate vocabulary, grammatically correct sentences, organisation of sentences and paragraphs. Also the candidate is tested on the listening skills and the ability to write using the correct tone and tenor.

Skillwise Communication Proficiency Assessment Process

Skillwise Academy uses advanced online assessment tools from their business partners to cater to the different kinds of assessment requirements. The tools can be tailored to suit the requirements of the client and has the flexibility of using the question banks provided with the tool or gives the option of uploading custom made question banks onto the system.

The online tools use different testing methodology depending on the competency levels being put to test.

In the Adaptive testing methodology, Skillwise tests the level of skill/knowledge on the subject. A set of initial questions will determine level of skill or knowledge the candidate has and then auto generates the next set of questions. The computer-adaptive testing method uses an iterative algorithm and sets the difficulty level based on the ability as shown by the candidate in the initial question.

The difficulty level of the test seems to tailor itself to their level of ability. For example, if a candidate performs well on a question of intermediate difficulty, they will then be presented with a more difficult question. Or, if they performed poorly, they would be presented with a simpler question. This ensures that candidates receive quite different tests from each other.

In the Linear Test Method, Skillwise follows the blend of traditional way of testing and the adaptive model of assessing. In this system, we have a set of questions given to each of the candidates as in traditional method. To enhance proctoring, different sets of questions are given to the participants to avoid malpractice. However, effort is made to have equality in the difficulty level among the sets of questions. The more the candidates, the more sets of questions to eliminate any sort of malpractice. At Skillwise we conduct this test using a computer program that randomly selects questions and makes sets of them ensuring questions are equivalent across the sets.

In the Real Time Method, is used in software programming that helps detect bugs in the software. This form of testing gives the desired functionality to the user. The tests starts by leveraging on a library of questions pertaining to programming challenges in difficulty levels to determine the capability and competency level by using time constraints.
