Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs), Video and Audio Interviews are additional question types which can be added as discover questions to your forms.

If these options aren't available to you, please contact the Eploy Success Team, or your Account Manager, to have them added.  As they are a premium feature, there may be an additional cost associated with using them, but we'll discuss these potential costs with you before adding them to your system.

In this article we'll look at how to effectively configure and manage these question types.

Situational Judgment Tests

A Situational Judgment Test (SJT) is similar to the Multiple Choice Grid question type, but has additional scoring capabilities and allow you to outline different scenarios before scoring the Candidate on their response selections.

SJT questions can be added to your form by clicking Add, then Discover Field, and selecting SJT from the list of available Discover Field types. 

Use the Discover Field box to enter the details of the scenario the question relates to.

Within the Sub Questions field, enter the various options you want the candidate to select from (this adds rows to the question grid) and use the Response Options to add options for the Candidate to select (this adds columns to the grid).

For each Sub Question and Response Option, add a Score.

For each response selected, Eploy will multiply the selected Response score with the score of the Sub Question, giving you the total score for each sub question.  For example, in the screenshot below, if the Candidate selects Most Likely for sub question C or D, they will achieve a score of 0 as 1 x 0 = 0.


You can also set an Unselected Multiplier allowing Eploy to provide a calculated score if the Candidate doesn't select a preferred option.

The above settings would look like this on your published form.


Audio and Video Interviews

Audio and Video Interviews give your Candidates the opportunity to record their answers to questions, ether as an Audio or Video file, using the Camera and/or Microphone of their device.

Hint - If the candidate is unable to record a response, they will be able to upload a pre-recorded response instead.

To add an Audio/Video Interview question to your application form, add a Discover Field and select the Input - Video Interview or Input - Audio Interview question type.

Once added, you can set the following:

  • Save Answer As - select the file type the recording should be saved as.
  • Discover Field - this is where you write the question you'd like your candidates to answer
  • Allow Retakes - with this set to Yes, your candidates will be able to re-record their answer if they're not happy with it.


  • Thinking Time - this option is only available when Allow Retakes is set to No.  This gives your Candidates time to think about their answer before recording.  When set to Unlimited, once the candidate is ready, they can click the Record button to record their answer.  If you set a time limit, the recording will automatically start when the thinking time ends.
  • Answer Time - this allows you to dictate how much time they have to answer the question, capped at 10 minutes.

Hint - Whilst there are costs associated to video & audio interviews, there are no limits on the number of Audio or Video Interview questions you can ask within a discover form. The charge is per application, rather than per audio / video question.

When you add an Audio or Video Interview question to your form, a Video Setup page will automatically be added to your form. This page allows your Candidates to activate their camera and microphone, whilst also giving them the chance to practise before responding to your interview questions.  The Video Setup page should appear before any audio or video questions.
