TAM - Creating and Evaluating Open Ended Questions
GENERAL DESCRIPTION: Open Ended Screening Questions (Essay Questions) can be used in screening during an application. Once the question has been added to the screening criteria when creating a Job Opening, evaluators must be assigned as those who will be reviewing the answers provided by the applicants.
- Open Ended Screening Questions are included in the Screening Question Library in TAM and are available for selection similar to other screening questions.
