Psychometric testing

Psychometric testing for use in recruitment and selection or to help identify development needs.
Psychometric measures of ability and personality provide valuable information on candidates’ suitability for a job. They also create an impression of your organisation in the minds of the candidates. Psychometric assessment is recognised as a two-way process in which the employer and the candidates form perceptions of each other.

Aptitude Tests

Aptitude and ability tests are designed to assess your logical reasoning or thinking performance. You will be tested for the following:

  • Verbal Ability
  • Numeric Ability
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • Spatial Reasoning
  • Mechanical Reasoning

Verbal Ability – These include questions which test your ability to spell words correctly, use correct grammar, understand analogies and follow detailed written instructions.

Numeric Ability – These include questions on basic arithmetic, number sequences and simple mathematics. In more complex numerical critical reasoning questions, blocks of information are provided that require interpretation.

Abstract Reasoning – These tests are usually based on diagrams and measure your ability to identify the underlying logic of a pattern and then determine the solution.

Spatial Reasoning – These tests measure your ability to manipulate shapes in two dimensions or to visualize three-dimensional objects presented as two-dimensional pictures.

Mechanical Reasoning – These tests are designed to assess your knowledge of physical and mechanical principles.

Personality Questionnaires

The principle behind personality questionnaires is that it is possible to quantify your personality by asking you about your feelings, thoughts and behaviour.
