Product Details

What is TestGorilla?

TestGorilla is an assessment tool primarily used to screen candidates for technical roles. The tool was built using Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) standards with the goal of reducing unconscious bias in the hiring process. Candidates are ranked based on their scores rather than any other factor, so recruiters see the most qualified candidates first every time

TestGorilla differs from other technical skills assessment products in that it also offers tests for non-technical skills. TestGorilla may be advantageous to the user who is looking for a product that does both technical and non-technical skills assessments in one platform.

Another difference between TestGorilla and some of its competitors is its use of one-way video interviewing. Many technical skills assessment platforms offer the option of a live interview session, whereas TestGorilla allows candidates to record their answers to pre-set questions for the recruiter to watch and evaluate later.

Scientific Approach

Per the vendor, all assessments on TrustGorilla were built using a scientific approach. TestGorilla employs a psychometrics team that specializes in assessment design who work in tandem with subject matter experts to design the tests. The tests also go through a peer-review process before implementation.

TestGorilla re-evaluates its tests on an ongoing basis. Their algorithms look for indicators that allow them to make improvements. Using measures like Cronbach’s alpha, they track the internal consistency of questions.

Per TestGorilla, they verify the content validity of each test with the US Department of Labor’s skills analyses and UGESP framework of employee selection. To evaluate the predictive validity of their tests, they also follow up with customers about the performance of candidates hired using TestGorilla. Using this data, they are able to give recommendations about which tests should be used based on the role being evaluated.

In order to prevent cheating on assessments, TestGorilla employs several measures including periodic webcam shots of the candidate. TestGorilla does not allow copy-paste within their assessments and alerts when a candidate leaves full screen to prevent them from researching during the assessment.

Support Throughout the Hiring Process

TestGorilla provides support for employers throughout the hiring process. Customers can build assessments for their available positions based on TestGorilla suggestions. Customers can also add custom questions to each assessment.

Invitations can be sent out to candidates in bulk within TestGorilla’s platform or via a company’s ATS. After invitations are sent, there is a tracking feature built into the platform that allows customers to track where each candidate is in the hiring process.

Candidate results are reported instantly on a dashboard that allows customers to see how each candidate ranks and evaluate their responses to any video interview questions. Once a decision is reached, TestGorilla allows for bulk-rejection emails to those who were not selected for the role.

We use it for hiring staff employees. TestGorilla allows us to screen the best candidates and saves us tons of time on the front end to make sure the right candidates are applying for the right positions within our organization. We pair this with a job search on LinkedIn and other sites to make sure the right people are applying.

TestGorilla is best used if you want to screen the people that are applying for positions within your company. We have found that we are able to weed people out of the process due to the amazing screening that TestGorilla does for us on the front-end. We love the assessments it makes the candidates take! I would like to see it integrate more with some of our current systems thought. We use Rippling currently for employee management/payroll and would love to see it integrate there.
  • Candiate Screening
  • Assessment of candidates (we no longer do this ourselves)
  • Dashboard of candidates

  • We are saving time on interviewing
We did not look into much other systems as we were actually recommend to use this system from other who currently use it. So we did not use a software like this before and found it to be on the best decisions we made from a HR standpoint in recent years!

As an agency looking for a Virtual Assistant we are looking for a website that could help lessen our job or to do the work for us. Luckily, I have known TestGorilla, we used it as a first step to test the applicants if they are worthy of the next level of the hiring process wherein we don't have to ask a lot of questions during the interview because TestGorilla did that for us! For that reason, we don't have to pay a lot of employees to go through all the applicants, its saves time and money.
  • Do pre-employment screening.
  • Finds candidate fast and unbiased.
  • Accurate results.
  • Provides specific test for a specific skills.
  • Sometimes couldn't access results.
  • For recording themselves, candidates couldn't see how many try out they are allowed to take.
  • Customer service sometimes unresponsive.
Daily, I received a bulk of Resumes/applicants, I sometimes mistook the important details to look into or to question due to I have a lot of applicants waiting to be called next. TestGorilla is well suited for you when you received a bulk of applications however if you only received one or two applicants better do it yourself.
  • It's customize branding.
  • Aptitude test.
  • Assessment management.
  • Integration
  • You can save cost.
  • You can save manpower.
  • You can select the best candidate whom will be the asset of the company.
It is inexpensive, I don't have to spend so much for hiring a candidate. It is user-friendly and you will know how exactly how it is done. It is satisfactory accuracy with regard to candidates' accuracy of answers. Lastly, Integration into our process was easy enough, like no other.
