TAM - Creating and Evaluating Open Ended Questions
Open Ended Screening Questions (Essay Questions) can be used in screening during an application. Once the question has been added to the screening criteria when creating a Job Opening, evaluators must be assigned as those who will be reviewing the answers provided by the applicants.
- Open Ended Screening Questions are included in the Screening Question Library in TAM and are available for selection similar to other screening questions.
- Only the assigned evaluators can award an applicant points for the answer.
- Evaluators do not see identifying information about applicants.
