New Partnership Opens the Door to Next-generation Gamified Assessments. NEW YORK, July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Talent measurement and assessment specialist cut-e and psychometric games developer Arctic Shores have formed a new partnership to develop next-generation 'gamified assessments' which will help employers to attract and select job applicants. Arctic Shores creates immersive mobile games, using neuroscience and applied psychology, covering topics such as innovation, resilience and general mental ability. Under the new partnership, cut-e will exclusively distribute these games in the USA. The two companies will also work together to develop a new breed of gamified assessments for pre-application attraction and candidate selection.
