What is a Psychometric Assessment?

Psychometric assessments offer a fair and objective way of measuring a range of attributes such as aptitude, critical reasoning and behavioural style.

For a test to be ‘psychometric’, it must be standardised, reliable and valid. It must be consistent in its content, administration and scoring. This ensures the test is accurate and measures what it is supposed to, whilst omitting the influence of subjective biases.

Psychometric Assessments in Recruitment

Psychometric assessments are often used within recruitment and development processes with the aim of helping employers identify the most suitable candidates for job applications or promotions, based on the extent to which their personality and cognitive abilities match those required to perform the role.

Most psychometric assessments is completed online, though some paper formats are still used as part of assessment and development centres. Most assessments are timed, with the exception of some psychometric personality tests which can be completed across multiple sittings.

Psychometric assessments may be used at different stages of the recruitment process:

  • At the early stages of selection to screen-out candidates who are likely to be unsuitable for the job
  • Prior to an interview as a tool for facilitating interesting discussions around a candidate’s profile
  • At a later stage, possibly with a second interview or as part of an assessment centre. You may wish to re-assess candidates at this point to confirm the results of earlier tests

Psychometric Assessment Benefits
