ALTA’s Language Tests for HR

Whether it is for bilingual incentives or to determine whether a candidate has the skills needed for a task, you want to be certain that the testing you use is valid and reliable. ALTA offers a job analysis to help you determine the requisite level of language skill required for your positions according to our 12-level protocol, and will identify the tasks in which the customer service professional will need to use the target language. This gives you a basis for deciding which type of testing is appropriate as well as what your cut-score will be for determining who among your candidates has the required level of language skill to do the job.

Do they prepare written communication? Perhaps they utilize advanced skills, such as interpretation or translation. Through the many test types we offer, ALTA can help you verify proficiency so that you can be confident that your employees represent your company no matter the language. The following test types are the most commonly used for customer service positions:
