Value-alignment assessment | PART OF ALTUS SUITE

What is Duet?

Altus Duet, a fit assessment to help better understand what's important to applicants compared to your program.

“Fit” is a critical component in selection, but it’s often assessed in a way that risks bias. With Duet, programs have a standardized, objective way to find applicants whose values in a program more closely align with their own.

Key program stakeholders complete the assessment to generate a Program Profile, which is compared with each applicant’s own ranking of values and priorities, resulting in “fit” scores for each applicant. Duet is currently available for US GME programs and as a pilot for US UME programs.

How it works

Selection tool

Program stakeholders generate a “fit” profile that ranks your values, priorities, and differentiators

Selection from applicants

Applicants complete the same assessment in which they select the characteristics they most prefer in a program

Fit assessment Score

Programs receive automatic “fit” scores of applicants for all categories as well as applicant rankings

Selection made easier

Further probe applicants’ communication skills and motivation with a short video-response tool when you need an additional data point or a tie-breaker.

Each unique assessment focuses on different competencies and attributes, but they work together to paint a more complete picture of your applicants.
