Some Prevue users prefer to administer Prevue Assessment using the paper booklet method. This booklet is administered by a Proctor who either times the first four sections of the assessment or plays the Prevue Administration CD. This process ensures that the candidate’s identity has been confirmed, the candidate has fully read and understood the instructions, and the assessment is completed without third party assistance. In many cases, multiple candidates are assessed at the same time using the paper booklet method. The booklet must then be entered into PrevueOnline.com for scoring and to produce the necessary reports for each candidate. To learn more about building reports for a candidate who has completed the assessment, please read the How-To Guide – Building Prevue Reports.
