8 That actually wasn't what I was trying to convey (guess I need to work
9 on those communications skills :) ). I did recognize that you were
10 looking to assess this, and that you felt that this was of critical
11 importance.
13 What I was getting at is trying to identify what aspects of the whole
14 recruitment process added the most value and which added the least, and
15 adjusting accordingly. I think that assessing attitude and maturity,
16 and providing the tools and education needed are the most critical
17 aspects of recruitment.
19 That's why I'm all for changing the approach to quizzes - from my
20 experience it wasn't the quizzes themselves that really added the most
21 value for me. The interaction that they triggered and getting me to
22 consider some of the more critical issues that come up in ebuild
23 maintenance added far more value than getting every detail of the
24 answers 100% correct.
26 The quizzes are just a tool - not the ultimate validators of ability.
27 Let's use every tool at our disposal in the best way possible.
