Integrity Tests

Integrity tests are used by many organizations, but they have disadvantages. EyeDetect is the better integrity test.

Integrity Tests:

Not Predictive and Only 37-59% Accurate

According to an extensive study conducted by the United States Congress, integrity tests were shown to have accuracy rates between 37 and 59 percent, and they err on the side of disqualifying honest candidates. By contrast, EyeDetect has a higher level of accuracy (86%).

Due to their low accuracy rates and false positives, integrity tests commonly reject good candidates. As a result, organizations must interview more people to find sufficient numbers of good candidates (which increases recruiting costs).

How EyeDetect Can Make A Difference

Why Are Integrity Tests Used?

Integrity tests are commonly used because they are relatively quick and inexpensive. They usually take about 30 minutes to administer and are priced at a fraction of a polygraph test.

Similarly, An EyeDetect test takes about 30 minutes. Although the cost is higher than an integrity test, EyeDetect is 86% accurate. This means that EyeDetect will allow organizations to screen less people to find sufficient numbers of candidates.

Don't Leave it Up to Chance

During an integrity test, the person being questioned may choose to respond so as to create a very positive image of their behavior rather than telling the truth. In other words, they could attempt to positively alter the impression they make, or they can fake their response.
