Assessing Academic Achievement


Identifying Talent Is Key to Your Company’s Future

The success of an organization depends on the skill and dynamism of its people. To stay on top, you want to recruit the best and brightest talents that make you triumph in the challenges ahead. The question is how to identify the most talented among the many young candidates who are joining the market every year.

Proper Screening Is Laborious and Expensive

A fair assessment of applicants that pays off in the long run demands a detailed and carefully designed application process. Tackling this challenge is expensive and can be a time intensive process for both HR professionals and existing team members. Yet, despite these efforts, it is difficult to rate the previous achievements of young applicants who lack expansive work experience.

University Grades Are Hard to Interpret

While universities and other institutes of higher education continuously assess and grade their students, these marks are rarely used as a decisive factor in hiring. Too incomparable and opaque are the grading standards, degree content and competitiveness at different institutions. This is especially true in Germany, where different schools apply different absolute grading standards.

CASE Reveals Information Hidden in Grades

CASE uses information about the specific grading scale in each individual university program in Germany and data about intelligence and personality profiles of students. Combining these two we support employers in unlocking the information contained in academic grading. Our aim is to overcome the bias that is inherent in directly comparing simple grade point averages, improving the identification of promising talents.
