As part of our psychometric testing service, we offer the following assessment tools:

(1) Work Personality Index

The Work Personality Index (WPI) measures personality traits that directly influence a person’s work performance and task effectiveness. The WPI measures 21 personality traits that indicate how people work with others, approach their tasks, solve problems, manage change and deal with stress. These traits include ambition, initiative, energy, leadership, flexibility, persistence, attention to detail, rule-following, dependability, teamwork, concern for others, outgoing, democratic, innovation, analytical thinking, self-control, stress tolerance, social confidence, multi-tasking, planning and persuasion. It also includes two special scales – managerial and leadership potential, and sales potential.

(2) Customer Service Aptitude Profile

The Customer Service Aptitude Profile assesses 18 traits that are required to achieve success in both customer service and sales roles including motivation, goal orientation, planning, sales disposition, sales closing, initiative – cold calling, initiative – general, achievement, competitiveness, assertiveness, team player, managerial, cooperativeness, self-confidence, diplomacy, patience, relaxed style and extraversion. The report identifies the person’s strengths, potential strengths and areas for development.

(3) The MAS Business Fundamentals (Standard)

The MAS Business Fundamentals (Standard) is ideal for general staff selection. It is used to assess a person’s learning and problem solving potential, their basic mathematical ability and their understanding of simple and complex words used in communication. It compares the results of test-takers to Non-Degree Qualified people and assesses Working Memory, Vocabulary and Mental Arithmetic.

(4) The MAS Business Fundamentals (Advanced)

The MAS Business Fundamentals (Advanced) is ideal for professional/managerial testing. It is used to identify people who have high level problem solving potential, a good understanding of financial concepts and well developed English language knowledge. It compares the results of test-takers to Degree-Qualified people and assesses Working Memory, Vocabulary and Financial Reasoning.

(5) Abstract Reasoning Test

The Abstract Reasoning Test assesses a person’s general intellect and ability to understand new concepts and abstract ideas, rather than testing their prior knowledge. It measures their fluid intelligence, which is related to the ability to understand complex concepts, quickly solve problems, rapidly learn new skills and grasp the bigger picture. This test assesses a person’s ability to identify relationships, patterns and similarities between shapes and figures.

(6) Mechanical Reasoning Test

The Mechanical Reasoning Test assesses a person’s ability to solve problems that require an understanding of mechanical ideas. It measures their understanding of very basic principles of physics and mechanics, visualising the movement of objects through space, and understanding cause-effect relationships between mechanical components. The items cover a wide range of content including wheels, gears, clamps, levers, sliding rods, shafts, pulleys, weights, conveyor belts, fixed and non-fixed pivots, and springs.

FAQs

What are psychometric testing services?

Psychometric testing services provide a standard way to assess aspects of human behaviour. They are used to measure candidates’ suitability for roles based on intellectual capabilities and personality traits.

How do psychometric tests work?

Psychometric tests are carefully designed, so each person completing them has the same experience. This includes the same questions and the same amount of time in which to answer them. The raw score (calculated in different ways depending on the test) is converted to a standard score and compared to a representative sample. This allows us to determine whether a person has scored above or below average (and by how much).

Why use psychometric tests during recruitment?

Recruiting people can be time-consuming and costly. Organisations are increasingly using psychometric tests as part of a broader strategy to help inform recruitment decisions. Psychometric testing provides measurable, objective data that can better assess who the most suitable candidates are. It offers a more scientific approach to recruitment – helping to identify, evaluate or expand on characteristics that might otherwise be hard to confirm. This helps to reduce your recruitment risk and ensure you hire with increased confidence.

At what stage should psychometric tests be completed?

After an initial interview, psychometric tests are helpful to confirm a candidate’s suitability for the role or expand on specific characteristics.

What are the main types of psychometric tests?

Psychometric tests usually cover two main areas – both equally important:

(1) Personality Testing: determines personality or character traits. In many workplaces, people’s personalities affect day-to-day operations, and ultimately business success. These tests can help determine a candidate’s enthusiasm and motivation to perform in the role; and whether they are likely to fit the organisation’s existing culture.

(2) Ability Testing: also known as aptitude testing, assesses an individual’s performance in different work-related tasks or situations. They measure potential rather than just academic performance and are frequently used to indicate how people might perform in a work setting. Various abilities can be tested, depending on the role. These include, for example, numerical, verbal, comprehension, attention to detail, and abstract reasoning.

Which psychometric tests are best?

This depends on the role. We offer various psychometric tests, with our recommendations based on the position being recruited and the types of traits you would like to assess.
