Integrity Testing

What is Integrity Testing?


‘Integrity Testing’ refers to a screening practice during recruitment of a new candidate which helps to test the candidate’s integrity and predict whether they might engage in malpractices in the future.


Usually, integrity testing is done via two different methods: using overt tests or conducting personality based tests. The overt tests would enquire about the candidate’s past behaviour and the actions that they would have done in those scenarios. On the other hand, personality based tests help in combing through the candidate’s personality and detecting traits that might lead to them conducting some kind of unethical practice.


However, due to the methods involved, integrity testing has come under severe criticism as it aims to predict the behaviour before any malpractice actually occurs.
