Some HR professionals begin their staffing role believing that a paper-and-pencil test can be a cure-all for almost all staffing situations. Companies as diverse as Ameritas Life Insurance and the National Football League use the WPT to assess employees and potential hires. It is tempting to look at these numbers and use them as a key step in selecting people for positions. Many universities use the SAT, ACT, GMAT, or GRE exam to screen potential students.
