Getting Started

To create your first assessment click on the Assessments Link in the main menu on the left of the screen. This will open the Assessments Screen, as shown in the image below. Click on the "Add Assessment" button to open the Assessment Builder.

Add a reference for your assessment in the ‘Reference Box’.

Give your assessment a title, typically this will be the job title of the role for which you're recruiting. If you're creating an employee engagement survey, it could be "2016 Employee Feedback Survey", for example. Enter this into the ‘Title’ box. 

Note: Both the reference and the title appear on the login screen displayed to candidates and employees.

Select a branding template from the drop-down box labelled ‘Select Branding’. Branding templates can be created and edited in the Administration page of Tazio.

Advanced Options

There are a number of advanced options you can select for your assessment. Tick the box next to the option to select it. Mouse over the relevant Info icon to view a full description of each option.

Introduction, Conclusion and Email Settings

Now enter your Introduction, Conclusion and Email text into the input boxes below. The Introduction text is the first screen a candidate sees when they first log in. Following the text you type in here, the candidate will see the following sentence ‘Once you are ready to start the interview, press the continue button. Good luck’ added after it.

The Conclusion text screen appears at the very end of the assessment and is your opportunity to thank the candidate for completing the assessment and explain what they can expect to happen next.

The email is sent to candidates once they have completed the assessment. You can personalise the email by adding placeholders which display the candidate or employees First Name, Surname and the Assessment Title. If your assessment is scored, you can also choose to insert the candidate's Score.


Now add your questions from the green ‘Add Question’ button on the right of the screen. Clicking on a question type will add one question of that type to the question list.

Clicking on the question in the list will display the details for that question. Here you can add your question text and select the Thinking and Answer times the candidates have for that question. Leaving the Thinking and Answer times blank, will make them unlimited. 

Save and Publish

The Start Date will automatically load the current date and time. However, you can change this to a later date, preventing anyone completing the assessment until after that date. You also have the option of choosing a ‘Close Date’, if nothing is set here, the assessment will be available indefinitely.

You're now ready to save your assessment using either the Save as Draft or Save and Publish buttons. Save as Draft will save your assessment but allow you to edit and make changes. As a draft assessment, no data will be saved by anyone completing the assessment. Save and Publish saves the assessment and all data entered will be saved. 

Once published, you can still make some changes to the published assessment including the Reference, Title, Branding, some of the advanced options, Pass and Fail status and the Start and Close date. However, you can't change the questions.
