Configuring Questionnaires for Candidate Evaluation


This article describes how to carry out structured candidate evaluations using customizable questionnaires.


Evaluation Forms

You can create a range of evaluation forms under Settings > Recruiting > Evaluation. Evaluation forms consist of sections that can be used multiple times. Add sections via the "+" button, and use drag and drop to arrange them as desired:


The sections Key Takeaways and Overall Recommendation are components of any evaluation form and designed to provide a clear and concise summary of the evaluation.



The reusable sections may be composed of the following elements; note that scales and text fields can be supplemented with additional informative text to provide guidance to the evaluator:

  1. Title
    Titles facilitate the organization of questionnaires in blocks.
  2. Scale
    Scales consist of descriptive text (title), the labels for the lowest and highest score (labeling), and a weighting. The weighting allows the importance of individual questions to be reflected on a scale between 0 and 1.
  3. Text field
    Text fields are used to enter qualitative feedback.
