An integrity test is a personality test designed to assess your applicant’s tendency to be honesttrustworthyreliable and dependable.

A lack of integrity has been shown to be associated with counterproductive behavior such as theft, violence, disciplinary problems, and absenteeism.

Integrity tests measure factors like conscientiousness, some aspects of emotional stability and agreeableness.

Integrity tests have been shown to be valid measures of overall job performance. This is because integrity is strongly related to conscientiousness, itself a strong predictor of overall job performance. Like other measures of personality traits, integrity tests can add a significant amount of validity to a selection process when administered in combination with a suitable battery of assessments.

Integrity tests may not eliminate dishonesty or theft at work, but the research strongly suggests that individuals who score poorly on these tests tend to be less suitable and less productive employees.
