How is the Korn Ferry Talent Q Test Scored? 

Your raw score in the Talent Q  tests provided by Korn Ferry is determined by all of your correct answers while taking the difficulty level of each question into account.  

Then, your score is compared to the appropriate comparison group of your employers’ choosing:  

  • Professional, graduate and managerial   
  • Customer service, administrative and similar (non-graduate)   
  • Composite (everyone from the Talent Q database

E – Well below average  

D – Below average
