The Morris and McDaniel Healthcare Employment Test Battery is a computerized test battery that greatly reduces the administration workload. In the typical application, the candidate receives only a brief introduction from the administrator. All other instruction and testing is accomplished by the candidate interacting with the computerized test. Test administration and management is uncomplicated and requires only basic computer skills such as facility with a computer mouse. The hospital battery has been reliably validated to predict the success of an employee.
The Test Battery comprises of either three or four separate tests (the clerical exam is only given to clerical jobs), each one designed to focus on the assessment of specific skills and abilities.
