Assessment and scoring are done remotely, either by experienced VCA occupational psychologist assessors, or by internal assessors where preferred.
Our assessors assess the candidates’ performance using a leadership based behavioural framework* with scores from 0 (no evidence) to 3 (significant evidence) for each behavioural area. This generates a percentage score for overall CPG performance and per behavioural criterion, for ease of interpretation. Our assessors provide evidence to support each evaluation made, which is reflected in an automatically generated feedback report. Where appropriate, assessors also provide developmental guidance, adding value to the feedback report.
In the NEW CPG LITE version, the exercises, criteria and standardised scoring are the same as the full version CPG. The difference is that instead of the assessor writing a paragraph of evidence to support each of their scores, the CPG Feedback LITE allows assessors to choose two statements from a pre-written list as evidence for each score. This list of statements is developed from hundreds of previous assessments completed by psychologist assessors, and are therefore highly relevant and targeted. The feedback reports for both the full CPG and CPG Feedback LITE are automatically generated from the assessment content which has been either written or selected.
Due to the reduction in time taken to write up the evidence, the NEW CPG Feedback LITE is offered at a reduced price. This option may be best suited to assessments at Crew and Watch manager where there are high numbers of candidates.
Whilst VCA assessors objectively assess and score your candidates, removing the burden on internal staff, there is the option for internal assessors to be trained to evaluate performance using the CPG Feedback LITE.
All results reports are generated automatically, providing organisations with a table of scores within a few of days of all assessments being completed.
On completion, the final feedback report on candidate performance can be accessed via the CPG portal by Learning & Development/ HR personnel.
*The marking criteria can be adapted to reflect your own organisational competencies where possible.
