Why the need for this psychometric course?
We know from research that well designed and reputable psychometric tests are incredibly useful in candidate selection and employee development as well as in team-building, coaching and career development. However, in order to be useful such tests need to be administered properly. Deviation from standardised test administration, errors in scoring, improper storage or use of test data or simply not giving respondents the information they need can all lead to a reduction in test reliability and validity. This effectively makes the test useless and can have huge negative impacts upon you, your company and the respondent. The content from this course prevents these issues by teaching you how to effectively prepare for and administer psychometric assessments.
What about the time commitment?
The course is divided into 4 Modules and the video play times are listed below, along with estimated time to complete assessments.
