Maximum Advantage Assessment Products Terms and Conditions
Maximum Advantage provides psychometric assessments, training, and all other products (“Product(s)”) subject to
these terms and conditions (“T&C”). Please review these terms and conditions prior to using any Product. Using
any product signifies your agreement with these terms and conditions. If you do not agree with these terms and
conditions, return the Product(s) for a refund.
Purpose and Limitations of Assessments
The purpose of all assessments provided by Maximum Advantage is to help guide managers to make better hiring and
employee development decisions. You should never base any hiring or other personnel decision solely on the outcome
of any assessment. Rather, all decisions should be made based upon your professional judgment with the assessment
results being one component of your decision.
Accuracy of Results
Even during multiple face to face
interviews it is possible for candidates to answer questions deceptively or enhance their answers to be whey they
think you want to hear. While many of our assessments include a ‘distortion score’ or other indicators which
provide an indication of how candid and frank the respondent was while taking this assessment, Maximum Advantage
cannot guarantee the accuracy of the results provided to you by any employee or candidate.
The results obtained by using our assessments will be influenced by the accuracy of the ‘benchmarks’ or ‘job
match patterns’ that are created by the user to define the requirements of a specific position, therefore it is
critical that you follow the steps outlined beginning on page 1-14 or the PXT Technical manual to insure the
integrity of the benchmarks. Failure to follow these steps can negatively impact the results obtained using the
Profile XT. Even if we assist you in the creation of benchmarks, the final acceptance and accuracy of the
benchmarks is yours.
While the reports provided by our
assessment products are largely easy-to-use and self explanatory, they should never be used by anyone who has not
been trained by an authorized Maximum Advantage trainer. In addition, all users should obtain, review, and
understand the documentation and technical manuals provided with each product. You agree that Maximum Advantage has
not made any representations either verbally or in writing about the capabilities or use of the products other than
those found in documentation for the product.
Our assessment provider, Profiles International has created validated and reliable assessment tools to the extent
documented in the technical manual for each assessment. The assessments have been developed by an experienced team
with an excellent reputation and the assessments have been rigorously evaluated under both federal and conservative
Nonetheless, an employer utilizing assessments is advised to measure the impact of the test on their specific
hiring practices independently of the reliability and validation studies set forth in the assessments’ Technical
Manual in order to insure that there is no disparate impact with regard their specific hiring practices.
Specific State Laws
It is the responsibility of the user
to understand and comply with state specific laws relating to the use of assessments in their state.

not engaged in rendering legal, or other professional service. If legal advice is required, the services of a
competent professional person should be sought.

resources topics are only opinions and are provided “as is”, with no warranties or representations. As with all
other aspects of using assessments, all final decisions rest with the user.
