Candidate Credibility Index


The Candidate Credibility Index helps in identifying and filtering out candidates who resorted to means of cheating while taking an assessment. Candidates having a low credibility index (low credibility) have a higher likelihood of having resorted to cheating means and vice-versa. The index has values - High, Medium and Low. 


Note: The Credibility Index feature is currently in Beta. To get it enabled for your account, please reach out to support@mettl.com


You can filter the candidates on the basis of Credibility Index from the assessment results page. The index is also displayed on the candidate reports, PDF and Excel downloads. For assessments with no proctoring methods enabled, the index will not be calculated and these candidates will fall under ‘Not Applicable’ category.



Note: The Credibility Index is not displayed in shared reports.
