Closing
Many dimensions have correlations that can either make the impact of that score more or less prominent. The best way to get more information about these correlations is through additional interviews with the candidate and checking references. Referencing can be difficult, but if you ask a specific questions using the information from these dimensions and correlations you may get more specific answers to your questions. Even simply confirming the dates of employment from a reference can prove to be important information. There is a percentage of applicants that falsify this information because many employers do not confirm the dates accuracy. Testing should be 1/3 of your hiring decision, and by using it in interviews, references and training you get so much more out of your testing investment!
