Understanding how individual scores compare to others is essential when analyzing assessment results. To determine if a score is high, low, or average in relation to others, we rely on a norm group. Norms allow us to compare an individual's evaluation score to a relevant group of peers.
At Bryq, we have developed a standardized 1-10 scale called the Fit Score to interpret Bryq scores. This score provides valuable insights into an individual's position within a specific population. It is derived from a standard normal distribution, which is visually represented by the bell curve you see below. The marker's placement on the curve indicates where the candidate stands compared to the norm group.
The Fit Score ranges from 1 to 10, with scores between 4 and 7 considered typical, as they are obtained by approximately 68% of the norm group. Scores of 1 and 10 represent extreme values, each obtained by approximately 2% of the norm group.
In the Bryq assessment process, talent responses are compared to other people who have taken the Bryq assessment and share common characteristics with the talents of the position such as business interests. The results are then transformed into a Fit Score, providing candidates with a standardized measure of their fit within the norm group.
Bryq Fit Score classification is presented below:
📌The introduction of the Fit Score aligns with the innovative Talent Matching feature, which serves as a crucial guide for recommending talents for various role profiles. The Fit Score plays a vital role in this process by providing a standardized measure of alignment between talents and specific job requirements. By utilizing the Fit Score, you can make more informed decisions when identifying and matching the right talents to the appropriate role profiles, ultimately enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of your talent selection process.
