Student Analytics


Example 1: Peer rankings
Not all test takers are going to have the same level of finance knowledge – some students may
not know any finance at all
How do ensure an “apples to apples” comparison?
Answer: We provide “peer rankings” that show how test takers performed relative to their peer
Helps recruiters answer questions like “between those two humanities/liberal arts students,
which one showed enough interest in finance that they are able to answer at least some finance
questions? And which one is stronger in the areas where humanities/liberal arts students are
supposed to be strong, such as analytical reasoning?”
N.B. Student analytics will be shared only with institutions and are confidential. Recruiters will
only see students designated by numbers with no further details, and institutions will not be

Privacy and Data
Bloomberg Assessment (BAT)
The student’s name will never be released publicly or to any party
without the prior permission of the student. However, anonymous BAT
data will be available on every Bloomberg Terminal for our customers to
search for job seekers and we will enable recruiters worldwide to scan
and search for candidates.
All data from the BAT will be shown transparently to everyone EXCEPT
the name of student and institution. Students will be identified by a
serial number that only the student knows, and that will allow him or her
to know how they rank locally and globally in each BAT section and
If a recruiter or employer is interested in meeting a serial number, we
will request permission from the student to reveal his or her name and
contact details.
