About MOLLYMAWK psychometrics

Our psychometric tools combine objectivity, reliability, and validity with flexibility and convenience for organisations. Still only few psychometric service providers take seriously into account the fact that test preparation has a significant effect on raw scores. Ignoring this impairs the quality of a recruitment process due to an increased number of both false positive and false negative decisions. Integrating a systematic preparation concept secures not only fairness and acceptance among test takers it contributes to a more efficient assessment procedure.

Since the launch of MOLLYMAWK psychometrics in 2009 we have issued roughly 7.000 certificates.
