How does an assessment center work?

An online assessment center is a central repository where any company or agency – consulting, HR, or other – can manage their online assessments as well as control who has access to them. Giving access can be done via an email invite or alternatively be put behind a paywall or e-commerce platform. The first situation is ideal when the assessment center is used as an in-house solution for HR or training purposes, the latter is more suitable for consulting companies who want to monetize their knowledge and expertise.

The assessment center has 6 modules in total:

  1. Dashboards
  2. Plan Management
  3. Customer Management
  4. Assessment Management
  5. Respondent Management
  6. Campaigns

Assessment Center user roles

Access to these modules will vary based on the user role. There are three user roles available:

  • A super administrator role: The top level. This is the assessment center owner, they can create and add as many assessments as necessary, decide how long the assessment remains available, provide or deny access to administrators, and specify how many respondents can take each assessment. They can download all the data at any given time. They can create or let administrators create dashboards and charts with the collected data.
  • An administrator role: The middle level, often (department) managers tasked to distribute the assessments to the right people. This can be done via email campaigns with a personalized access code for each respondent.
  • An individual user role: The person taking the assessment. They can be given (limited) access to the assessment center, for example, to access dashboards with departmental data.

Dashboards
Assessment Center Dashboards

The super admin has access to all data and can download it at any given time. In the dashboard section, the super admin can create charts to create an overview of how the assessment center is being used. Dashboards can be built for the entire assessment center or per client or company. These dashboards can be shared with clients as well.

Plans Management
plans management

In the plan management, the super administrator can create their plans with predefined content, e.g.: one or more assessments, the number of available licenses (this is how often each assessment can be taken), how long the assessments remain accessible. Or alternatively, subscriptions can be made manually for each client or department and the can be changed along the way with additional invites, assessments, or deactivate subscriptions.

Customer Management

In the module, the super admin can manage their customers. Some customers can come in directly via an e-commerce site or they can be added manually – to onboard people via invoice. That’s where the customer management module comes in. The super administrator can assign one or more plans to each customer.

Assessment Management

There’s no limit to the number of assessments a super admin can build and add to the Assessment Center. Apart from adding assessments, the super admin can also activate and deactivate assessments. Should the super admin deactivate an assessment, the assessment will no longer be available for invitations on the admin level nor will respondents be able to fill it in anymore.

Administrator View

Respondent Management
Respondent Management

This is where admins can manage respondents: they can add new respondents based on active license limits, add them to teams or departments, enable or disable access to assessment on an individual or team level, and set the level of access each respondent has. E.g: Team managers can be given access to view the results of their team.

Campaigns
Campaigns

This is where admins can send out invites to take an assessment(s) via email. An email will be sent to the selected respondents with a personalized link to take the assessment. Each respondent is assigned an access code. When a respondent doesn’t receive an email, they will have no access, but a new access code can be generated. It won’t count as a new invite or response.

Respondent View

The respondent or end-user is the one taking the assessment(s) made available to them.

  • They will have access to the assessment(s) as soon as the admin sends an invite.
  • Upon completion, results as well as feedback can be made available to the respondent.

How to monetize assessments in your assessment center

As a consultant or consulting agency your main goal is to provide valuable advice to customers while maximizing the use of your time. Often,  that means hiring additional consultants if you want to scale your consultant business. But what if there was a way to monetize the advice you provide? 

With the assessment center you have the ability to charge clients to gain access to your assessments and gain personalized, high value feedback in return.

  • Individual or “retail” transactions. Web pages can link directly to each catalog item, launching a simple, secure shopping cart mechanism for customers to purchase access to the desired test.
  • Bulk or “wholesale” transactions. Here you can sell entire packages of assessments at once. Most suitable for companies which want to purchase and pass on the assessments to their employees. The catalog enables content owners to provide a purchasing organization limited, secure assessment administrative credits for the desired assessments.

The purchase process can be fully automated via Stripe, but it can also be done manually for bigger corporates who prefer to come in via invoice. An email with the assessment center login details will be sent to the key contact automatically once the payment process is complete.
