ACE Personality Screening - Recruit Rite

Career success is highly dependent on the compatibility between personality of the candidates and the job trait requirements. Typical personality screening tests measure the 5 big personality traits desired by employers for specific roles. However, a communal problem with these types of scales is that personality traits greatly differ among cultures, belief systems, and principles. This is where ACE is different.
ACE measures all 5 big personality traits with specific emphasis on the three personality traits that have proven to be consistent across the globe and across cultures to prevent overt forms of discrimination. Employers get accurate insight into their candidate pool making better matches and better hiring decisions. This 10-minute, 30 item online screening tool allows you to quickly and easily detect candidates with key personality traits that meet the needs of the role you are hiring for.

What are the 3 key personality traits consistent across the globe?

  • Agreeableness:
    Agreeableness is the tendency to be compassionate and cooperative rather than suspicious and antagonistic towards others. It is also a measure of one’s trusting and helpful nature, and whether a person is generally well-tempered or not.
  • Conscientiousness:
    Conscientiousness refers to the tendency to be organized and dependable, show self-discipline, act dutifully, aim for achievement and prefer planned rather than spontaneous behavior.
  • Extraversion:
    Extraversion is the tendency to portray positive emotions, surgency, assertiveness, sociability, and seek stimulation in the company of others.

Is ACE Accurate?

  • The simple answer? Yes! ACE is designed to measure 3 dimensions of personality that are believed to be applicable across cultures. Through a series of validity tests, ACE has been proven to accurately measure and identify these personality traits to accurately match the personality of candidates with job trait requirements.

Is ACE Reliable?

  • Yes! Reliability was determined based on internal consistencies between test subjects. The expected correlation of tests that measure the same construct is known as alpha. Alpha can range from .00 to 1.00, with 1.00 being perfect reliability. Based on reliability tests, ACE scales are acceptable to excellent, meaning ACE is accepted by evidence as being a reliable resource to help you in your hiring process! Validity testing was performed by Dr. Ron Holden, Queen’s University. For more information on this highly respected researcher, you can read his bio below! For copies of studies, please contact us.
