I've always thought of the hiring process as a series of filters. Each step along the way (resume review, phone screen, programming quiz, interviews, group meeting, ...) is useful at excluding candidates, but not at detecting whether they will be a good hire. There is no test or process that can assure a person will be a good hire, short of actually hiring them. Along those lines, I've often hired people on a 3-month contractual basis to give me a chance to work with them and them a chance to see what the job is really like. It's sort of like your auditioning practice but taken to a much further degree.
