What Is Verify?

Developed with direct input from experienced test users around the world, Verify offers a superior approach to online ability testing. Verify is a complete solution that includes a unique combination of tests, security measures and a scientific verification process to allow employers to test job applicants online securely and effectively, quickly and easily.

Better Practice For Online Testing

Better Practice provides a pragmatic and straightforward set of steps to enable test users to reap the benefits of online ability testing. We have developed Better Practice to help HR practitioners understand and overcome the risks around online assessment.

The Six Core Components of Verify


We have developed cutting-edge technology to support the science behind Verify. Features include highly sophisticated randomised test generation and timed tests delivered using Flash player applets. This technology is relied on by organisations worldwide to deliver tens of thousands of assessments daily.

Verify Item Bank

The Verify Item Bank generates a unique online Verify ability test for every applicant. This approach improves the security of content by defending against piracy and preventing test content being shared, reducing the risk of cheating by applicants.

Verification Process

Following the Verify ability test, a short, optional verification test is provided. Built as part of the package and delivered at no extra cost, the verification test quickly confirms the integrity of the results gained from the unsupervised test. This verification process is based on breakthrough innovations in psychometrics, verifying candidate performance quickly, simply and scientifically. A verification report provides a simple ‘Verified’ or ‘Not Verified’ result. If a ‘Not Verified’ result arises, guidance on possible reasons for the inconsistency and suggestions for next steps are provided.

Data Security and Forensic Services

We protect the security and integrity of Verify tests through our partnership with Caveon Test Security, the industry leader in using innovative data forensic solutions to protect online test programmes from test fraud. This gives you peace of mind that your data and testing processes are secure and fair.

Flexible Testing Options

Verify tests are as powerful as traditional offline tests. They can be used at any stage of the hiring process or employment cycle, and they are applicable for use throughout the organisation, from operational roles to senior management.

Scientific Rigour

Verify tests have been purpose built for the Internet and have been designed to the most rigorous standards. They are among the most powerful psychometric tests ever created – as rigorous as traditional offline tests and supported by real world validation evidence.

How Verify Works

The Verify tests are delivered through a packaged, two-stage process. This includes the Verify Ability Test, a powerful online ability test, which can then be followed by a short, optional Verification Test. The process is designed to verify the performance of short-listed applicants who have completed the first test in online, unsupervised conditions.

Stage 1 – Verify Ability Test

• Online, unsupervised
• As rigorous as traditional ability tests but faster and online
• Suitable for multiple job levels
• Ability test report output

Stage 2 – Verification Test

• Optional; online, supervised
• Very short, no charge for administration
• Verifies candidate performance on the unsupervised ability test
• Verification report output - no scores, simple ‘Verified’ / ‘Not Verified’
