There is wide-spread concern about the honesty and integrity of employees. Most organizations have serious problems of pilferage, absenteeism, tardiness, employee disagreements that lead to violence, drug and alcohol abuse, and computer misuse. The annual loss from these counterproductive behaviors is estimated in the billions of dollars. There was a clear need for a brief assessment that could be used as part of the pre-employment screening process. CandidClues™ was developed to meet that need.

CandidClues™ assesses six areas of potentially counterproductive behaviors by a self-descriptive inventory that taps six substantive areas of concern as well a Good Impression (validity) scale.

  • Hostility
  • Conscientiousness
  • Integrity
  • Substance Abuse
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Computer Misuse

CandidClues™ is modular with four “core” scales and then three additional scales that can be added as needed. The core assessment is 80 true/false questions and if all the core scales are added, the assessment is 140 questions. The scores produce a CandidClues™ profile which can then be compared to successful and less successful incumbents in a variety of jobs.

Developed in an English-language version, this assessment takes only 10-12 minutes to complete. CandidClues™ is a web-based system, but it can be given on paper if necessary (if given on paper, the responses would be entered into the online administration account in order to access reports).

The CandidClues™ Assessment provides three valuable reports for the user:

  • Interpretive Report: Describes the score in each scale and what it means.
  • Graph Report: A quick snapshot of the participant’s scores and what level of concern they fall into.
  • Behavioral Interview Question Report: Follow-up questions based on which assessment items the participant answered in a “counter-productive” manner.
