How to Choose

About our Tests

There are, literally, hundreds of different kinds of tests & assessments on the market today. However, no single test is appropriate for every situation and not every test will provide you with the variety or quality of information that you require.

How to choose the right test - The best way to select an assessment tool is to first have a clear goal regarding who and what you wish to measure. Before seaching for a test, scan How to Choose the Right Test and our Test FAQs below:

How to Coose the Right Test

Select the right test for the job

For instance...

  • Hiring for an entry level position.
  • Promoting an existing employee.
  • Assessing a senior employee’s skill sets.

Know what you want to measure

There are few one-size-fits-all assessments. Most tests are specific to a certain skill set, job role, or ability. There are also a wide range of assessment products available to help employers test for skills in customer service, retail, management, mechanical ability, honesty, dexterity, safety habits, office skills, computer skills and more. If you know what skills your employees require, then you know what type of tests you need to use to evaluate them.

Sometimes it is necessary to combine a number of tests to accurately measure everything that you want to test for.

Consider...

  • What do I need to know about the applicant before I hire them?
  • What skills must I ensure that they have before I offer them employment?

Example scenarios...

  • To determine which one of several candidates would be a good team leader, administer a team leading or leadership skills test.
  • When hiring for an entry level position, consider tests that measure honesty, tenure, attitudes towards supervision or reading/math ability.

Test for specific skills

There are a wide range of assessment products available to help employers test for skills in customer service, retail, management, mechanical ability, honesty, dexterity, safety habits, office skills, computer skills and more. If you know what skills your employees require, then you know what type of tests you need to use to evaluate them.

Types of Tests

Basic Skills Tests

Basic skills tests measure skills that should reasonably be expected for most employees, regardless of their position. These are usually the sort of skills that people obtain in everyday life, elementary school, or high school. Basic skills might include...

  • Reading
  • Arithmetic
  • Measurement
  • Problem solving
  • Decision making
  • Reasoning
  • Vocabulary
  • Checking accuracy

Skill Tests

Skill tests are generally task- or job-specific. Tests have been developed to help test a person’s ability to perform a specific set of tasks or skills.

These tests measure things like...

  • Microsoft Word
  • customer service ability
  • pharmacy skills
  • sales ability
  • welding ability
  • warehouse skills
  • etc.

Intelligence and Personality Tests

Intelligence can be measured with respected testing instruments designed for the particular situation at hand, and in English and many foreign languages. Personality tests are designed to help assess aspects of a person's character that remain stable throughout that person's lifetime, the individual's character pattern of behavior, thoughts, and feelings. In other words, a person's "usual" or normal personality traits; the behaviours or values that make them who they are.

Although these tests are generally very accurate, personality tests are not usually recommended or legal for use as pre-hiring assessments. Most employment laws demand that only those skills that can be proven to be requirements for success in a particular position may be tested.

Other Types of Tests

360-Degree Tests measure one person’s perception of their various skill sets, compared against the perceptions of several other people that they work with or for. These tests can help determine where people can improve their skills and identify deficits.

Other tests include tests for high-security positions, cognitive reasoning, substance abuse, stress and burnout and many other things, including diagnostic and psychiatric tests for professional use in clinical and forensic settings.
