SortSmart® helps you select top applicants while promoting diversity

SortSmart is a short, online test taken by all your applicants. Applicants are presented 15 text-based and video-based question sections and are prompted to type or video record their responses mimicking an in-person interview under time constraints to ensure genuine responses.

The test is designed to tests applicants based on 3 key indicators of future success: intrinsic motivation, coachability and conscientiousness - proven by over 40 years of research.

Peer-reviewed research has demonstrated that individuals with high levels of the Big Three, perform better, experience less burnout, learn faster, and find their jobs more satisfying.

Furthermore, the test seamlessly examines both written and verbal communication skills of all your applicants.

Since neither of these characteristics correlate with race, gender, cultural background or socioeconomic, the test eliminates implicit bias and promotes diversity. 

In fact, this is the same exact software and process we use to hire our own team members. Unlike, our competitors we take our own medicine. 


As Seen On:

SortSmart® offers superior reliability and validity

The test is highly reliable because it consistently measures the same characteristics using 15 independent questions. Applicants take the test on the same dates and times and each question is strictly timed to ensure similar conditions are reproduced for each applicants.

Furthermore, each of the 15 questions by each of your applicants are scored by an independent evaluator who is highly trained for added reliability.

Test reliability is also internally evaluated on a regular basis and questions with lower reliability are eliminated to continuously increase test reliability.

Importantly, SortSmart is the only test that measures the top 3 characteristics that have been proven to strongly correlate with future on-the-job behavior and performance, making it a valid test of future professional success. 


SortSmart® is fair to applicants, yet uncompromising on test security

Since SortSmart test is administered efficiently to your entire applicant pool, it is fair to all applicants and allows for the implementation of a truly holistic admissions process.

The test is administered online and can be assessed from any geographical location with a stable Internet connection. This ensures that travel costs associated with traditional interviews do no present a challenge to lower income applicants while the cost and time of setting up in person interviews do not limit interviews to only a few applicants.

But being fair does not mean you have to compromise test security. Aside from the continuous proctoring of each applicant via video recording throughout the entire test, the test is equipped with state-of-the-art mechanisms to make sure the applicants identified on the application is the applicant writing the test and doing so without any outside help. 


SortSmart® adds zero costs to your institution OR applicants

SortSmart allows for the scalability of screening from a handful of applicants to tens of thousands for various programs simultaneously with absolutely no cost to your institution because you'll get free access to the software. Yes, the use of the software is 100% free because we believe everyone deserves access to education.

If you decide to hire us to create questions for you or take care of the entire process, great. If not, you'll still have free access to the software, a sample question set, training videos on how to use the software, traing your evaluators, score responses and even create new question sets.

We won't even charge your applicants like the other guys. How can we help you eliminate bias if we add yet another charge to applicants who are already under a lot of financial pressure? 


Here's what others have to say about SortSmart:

“SortSmart is a convenient and innovative tool with a true potential to revolutionize candidate screening. Our startup is often hiring in positions including marketing and R&D. Seeing that several of our co-founders are spread across geographically distinct institutes including UCSF, University of Toronto and Harvard Medical School we find it difficult to hire new team members without bias or inconsistencies. SortSmart offers an efficient and effective solution to our problem through a user friendly, highly customizable screening tool that can be optimized to select the perfect candidates. I highly recommend SortSmart for candidate screening.” - Dr. Payam Zarin, PhD, Co-Founder of AllergenFree

“You can easily interview 3-4 times more candidates in a given week using SortSmart. Load up different sets of questions for different roles, and have the system automate the interview process without you being present. Then run through the interviews in batch work. This is a complete game changer!” - Rokham Fard, Founder of TheRedPin and PsychologyCompass

"It is a fact that a challenge of our times is to be able to pick the right candidates... how to sort them out? For too long we have relied on whoever has the most impressive list of degrees or a great sounding last names (biases). SortSmart is a new tool for a new world where we will finally be able to answer the questions: Is this person a good fit for this job, project, company or organization?" - Gabe Bautista, Marketing Expert

In a news article, the CEO of Association of Faculties of Medicine of Canada, Dr. Geneviève Moineau, voiced her agreement with SortSmart that “better ways to evaluate “humanistic” factors including “one’s capacity to learn” and “the intrinsic motivation to provide care and to advance scientific discovery” are needed.”, in response to a study by SortSmart on candidate selection.
