Whether you are hiring a new employee or evaluating a seasoned worker, the key to building a successful workforce is insightful training. Employee assessments are the perfect tool for business owners, supervisors, and HR managers to not only gauge if a worker has the skills and knowledge for a job but to also understand what training is required, resulting in the safest and most efficient workforce possible.

Why Use Skills Assessments?
Our assessments are industry-specific, testing the knowledge and skills of an incumbent worker. With these assessments, businesses accurately identify their workforce’s strengths and weaknesses, along with the following:
- Identify training needs
- Measure employee skill-level
- Maintain safety standards & regulations
- Increase worker morale
- Document employee growth
- Create promotion opportunities
Testing However You Need It
NBS has dedicated several years to developing QuadNet, an online delivery system that delivers over 90 percent of our assessments. Assessments delivered through QuadNet include the following features:
- Scrambled delivery sequence of test items
- Immediate test results for the coordinator and/or test taker
- Text-to-speech capability for individuals with relevant special needs (varies per test)
- Dual-platform delivery options (PC and Mac)
- Delivery of tests in multiple sessions
- Delivery of tests available in multiple languages
If testing through the QuadNet portal is not an option, NBS delivers paper/pencil assessments at the request of our clients. We will ship booklets and answer sheets to the client for test administration. Upon completion of the assessment session, clients send answer sheets back to NBS for scoring. Score reports are available in the Client Services Center online portal two business days after we receive answer sheets in our office.
NBS is proud to accommodate the unique needs of our clients by offering Customized Assessments. With custom-built tests, we develop assessments entirely on the material and information you desire. NBS also provides specialized services for language translation and text-to-speech services, providing accessibility for all test takers.
Data that Makes Sense
Providing employers and managers with transparent data and information is our primary objective at NBS. Consequently, whether you’re using our standard or custom assessments, we provide intuitive Score Reporting. Standard Score Reports include access to our Testing Management Dashboard for individual and group scoring.
When circumstances call for more specific data types, we also offer custom reporting. With our custom reports, employers and managers can receive gap, demographic, and task-link analysis data, or reporting specific to their organization.
