Tips for conducting remote assessments

3. Tips for conducting remote assessments

You may find that candidates are more nervous in a remote assessment environment, particularly candidates who are less used to using videoconferencing tools.
As a result, you may need to make an additional effort to put them at ease. You may also find that there is sometimes a lag between message transmission and reception which you will need to take into account when managing the interaction with the candidate.

Care should also be taken to bear this and other technical issues in mind when assessing the candidate’s performance, in particular with regard to comprehension and interaction.
It’s also a good idea to check with the candidate that they can see all documents properly.
