Avoiding the Practice Effect Through Reuse Scores

The term Practice Effect refers to improving exam scores by taking the same exam again within a short period of time. The examinees are able to improve their score by recalling information from the recently taken exam, not because there has been growth or skill improvement.

When you administer an exam you want the best fit for the requirements of the position. Avoiding the practice effect will help ensure your examination results are an accurate measure of your candidates' knowledge, skills and abilities.

To avoid artificially inflated scores, Wisconsin Personnel Partners does not allow an examinee to take the same exam within a 6-month time period, or 184 days to be exact. We keep their scores on file and notify you of your reuse applicants. You get the scores of every reuse applicant at a discounted fee!
