Testing & Evaluation

Today’s diversified work environment requires a broad range of technical and soft skills. Your business demands integrity, productivity, customer service and other vital job-related qualities from your employees. Employers that effectively use assessments in their selection process often identify and select better qualified candidates resulting in improved performance of their workforce.

Assessment results provide you with valuable information regarding a candidate’s workplace attitudes, behaviors, skills, and abilities, thus allowing you to improve your hiring decisions. Effectively evaluating candidates prior to selection or promotion strengthens your bottom line by selecting the right person the first time, which allows you to retain your recruiting and training investment.

Assessment Strategies


Identify and hire the best people for the job and the organization in a fair and efficient manner.


Assign people to the appropriate job level. Assessments provide information that helps organizations achieve the best fit between employees and jobs.


Identify employees who possess managerial potential or higher level capabilities, so the appropriate employees can be promoted to assume greater duties and responsibilities.

Training and Development

Design or modify training programs for employees based on identified skill gaps.

Program Evaluation

Determine whether employees are benefiting from training and development programs.

How MCDA Can Help

MCDA offers comprehensive testing and evaluation solutions to assist you in maximizing the potential of your workforce at four (4) key levels: individuals, teams, leadership, and organizational development.

Skills, Abilities, Attitudes and Behaviors

  • Measure the attitudes and behaviors that will help you match candidates with open positions more accurately and efficiently.
  • Target the critical skills, aptitudes, and abilities commonly required for a wide range of positions to help you hire the most qualified candidates.

Whether it’s accounting, computer programming, welding, or word processing, you can feel confident in the skills and abilities of the candidate(s) you select prior to on-the-job performance.

Management & Leadership

Building a strong management team takes time, insight, and a long-term strategic view. Management assessments can help evaluate the skills and attitudes of both applicants and current employees that are critical to success as a manager, supervisor or team leader. This includes such factors as experience, leadership, adaptability, problem-solving, business ethics, interpersonal skills and training needs.

It is a double loss for you and your bottom line when an effective employee becomes an ineffective manager.

Organizational Development

Organizational developmental assessments used by MCDA can help you leverage, develop and retain a talented workforce through identification of strengths and developmental areas. This allows us to work with you to meet your specific goals and strategies.

Testing Validation

Validation is a complex issue with broad implications for all companies.

*All evaluations offered by MCDA are validated to ensure that the tests are fair to all job applicants and meet mandated guidelines.
