Assess on Cloud in the Search Field

Talent with assessment scores can be found with specific terms entered into the search field. Specific search terms (assessmentName and assessmentScore) are used along with the name of an assessment to narrow results.


Note: The search terms and name of the assessment must be precisely structured in the search field - including spacing, punctuation, and capitalization - to generate expected results.



Example 1

Find talent that has taken the Typing Assess 2 assessment. Enter assessmentName: "Typing Assess 2" into the search field with the exact words "Typing Assess 2" inside quotation marks. 




Example 2

Find talent that has achieved a minimum score on the Typing assessment. Enter assessmnetName: "Typing Assess 2" into the search field with the exact words "Typing Assess 2" inside quotation marks followed by the operator 'AND,' then assessmentScore: >30.




Example 3

Find talent that has scored within a range on the Typing assessment. Enter assessmnetName: "Typing Assess 2" into the search field with the exact words "Typing Assess 2" inside quotation marks followed by the operator 'AND,' then assessmentScore: [20 to 30].
