Will job applicants drop-off if I ask them to complete an assessment?

This is a common question and concern among employers when they first embark on using pre-employment tests.  Recent large-scale research has demonstrated that organizations can create longer, robust screening assessments without experiencing a significant increase in applicant dropout rates after the first 20 minutes.  The authors of this research encourage HR professionals and hiring managers to focus more on the utility of the assessment instead of potential resistance to assessment length.
