Criteria Corp (Pay Per Assessment): Integrated Service Overview

Last Updated: Apr 14, 2016 11:19AM EDT


Hyrell offers integrated pre-employment assessments with Criteria Corp directly through the Hyrell system.

Criteria Corp provides customized aptitude, personality, and skills tests for more than 400 jobs. These assessments generally range from 15-40 minutes in length and the results can be used to filter large applicant pools and screen out applicants who don’t meet the minimum requirements.


Integration Options

There are two types of integrations available with Criteria Corp: Subscription or Pay Per Assessment (PPA). To learn more about the Subscription integration click here.

Using the PPA model, you can elect to administer an Assessment to applicants on an individual basis once the application has been received. Each assessment costs between $10 and $30.

To turn either integration on, go to Admin > Integrated Services.  Then, click on the Assessments Tab and you will be able to read about both options Criteria offers by clicking on Learn More.  


Your Hyrell representative will provide you with an activation code for PPA at which point you can turn the integration on by clicking the Activation toggle, adding the code, and clicking submit.


NOTE: Regarding your integration options, each account can only have one of the two integration types activated at any given time – you can either have Subscription activated or you can have PPA activated.


How it works:  Pay Per Assessment

Once you have activated your Criteria PPP, you can give an applicant an assessment once the applicant has submitted an application.  To do so, first you go into the applicant’s file, and click on “Assessment Test”.  


The system will automatically match the available assessment(s) to the job title you are evaluating.  It will display the match.  You make the selection, and then enter your credit card details. 


Once you click on “Proceed to checkout” the applicant will be sent a link to the Assessment and the applicant file will be updated with “Assessment 1 Requested”.  


Once the applicant has completed the Assessment, the applicant’s file will change and it will now tell you that the Assessment has been received.  It will also automatically deposit the results of the Assessment directly into the applicant’s file for your review.  You can click on the “View” links to review each result.




  1. Only the Primary Contact can activate Criteria.
  2. The Primary Contact can also determine which Users can initiate and view Assessments Results by using the Authorizations feature.
  3. There is no integration charge to utilize this feature, the only additional charge will be the individual Pay Per Assessment fees.
