San Fransisco, CA, April 03, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The NannyTest is an online personality test that helps host parents assess prospective au pairs in order to increase the likelihood their match is a good one. The test is unique in combining both risk assessment and personal traits suitability. NannyTest provides better insight into the personality and traits of the au pair, as well as identifying possible risk factors. The professional test is now available to parents online through Take-Care.com.
Not all au pair agencies in the USA use the same test to screen au pairs and some agencies do not use standardized tests. According to USA TODAY, "An agency could take a fluffy personality test off the Internet that had nothing to do with child care and give it to candidates, and that would still meet the U.S. Dept. of State's regulations."
TakeCare’s NannyTest is designed specifically for the assessment of au pairs, nannies and babysitters, with a focus on the identification of possible risk factors: violent behavior, drug or alcohol abuse, theft and lying. The test also assesses other personality traits: responsibility, coping with pressure, positive attitude and more.
Edina Stone, Founder & CEO of AuPairClearinghouse, a national consumer resource on au pairs, says, “The NannyTest is a breakthrough in the au pair industry for host parents who can now purchase a professional personality test to screen prospective au pairs before they hire them. This test is an innovative online assessment that is simple to buy and use. Parents receive an easy to read report and any red flags will be clearly identified. The NannyTest gives parents more control over the interviewing and matching process and we are happy to endorse this invaluable screening tool for any parent who has any doubt about the au pair they plan to hire.”
