I am looking for a noun that represents the fact of a user taking a personality test.

I was thinking about examination, but it sounds like education/certification.

Context (unnecessary):
My website allows users to take personality tests.
It is a REST website, which means I have to use a noun for each type of data object.
The wording is quite important as it appears in the users' browser URL bar.
