What is ICES Assessment?

What are ICES Assessments?

The ICES Assessment stands for Independence, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, and Stability. The test measures a number of personal attributes of job candidates, called Scales.

  1. First, it measures a job candidate's abilities described in terms of:
    • Numerical reasoning (working with numbers)
    • Language skills (working with words);
    • Spatial reasoning (working with shapes)
    • A combination of all three to provide a measure of the candidate's general ability.
  2. Second, the ICES Assessment provides an assessment of a candidate's areas of interest described in terms of:
    • working with data
    • working with people
    • working with things

    These are the three areas of working functions used in the U.S. Department of Labor's "Dictionary of Occupational Titles".

  3. The third and most significant area examined by the ICES Assessment is an individual's personality traits. The personality assessment is based upon recognized personality scales for occupational assessment instruments. These are the major scales of:
    • Independence
    • Conscientiousness
    • Extraversion
    • Stability
  4. The fourth area measured by the ICES Assessment has to do with the internal validity of the candidate's responses to the questions in the assessment. A scale denoted as Social Desirability can provide a measure of the degree to which the test taker has modified responses to please or impress those who will be reading the resulting report. In addition, abnormal response patterns to the questions in the assessment will invalidate a candidate's results.
