Specialist Series Aptitude Tests

The Specialist Series Aptitude Tests assess the ability to reason with symbols, involving neither written text nor numbers. This ability is appropriate for specialist IT positions which involve extensive manipulation of information coded in symbols, particularly where coding is integral to the role. Specialist engineering (across all disciplines) and architectural roles rely extensively on this ability, where symbolic or coded representation is commonplace such as electric and chemical engineering.

In order to use our Aptitude Tests independently, you need to have a recognised certification in Aptitude Testing or the BPS Level 2 Ability Test User Qualification.

Alternatively, you may attend our Online Basic Psychometrics Course: Psychometrics for HR Decisions.

If you do not hold relevant qualifications and do not wish to undertake training, we can still assist by either giving you access to only text-based reports, or via our Psychologist-on-Call™ service wherein our psychologists will manage the process for you and then call you to explain all reports.

If you don’t have a certification in aptitude tests, don’t worry, our psychologists can handle the process for you. Let us know something about the job and its required competencies by way of a good job description and person specification. We will then be able to advise on the best assessments to use. You then simply send us the full names and email addresses of those to be tested and we will invite them via our system. Once they have completed the assessments, we will send you the reports and arrange a telephone or skype session to take you through the reports to ensure understanding and effective use.
validate

Validate is our innovative checking process for aptitude tests completed remotely and without supervision. The use of unsupervised aptitude tests saves time because job applicants can complete assessments without having to come to your office. However, it is difficult to be entirely certain that the right person completed the assessment.  This is where Validate comes in. Once you are at the shortlisting stage and you are meeting candidates for interview, administer Validate to your candidate. It simply presents candidates with the 6 most difficult questions which they originally got corrected in their unsupervised aptitude test. If they get them correct again under supervision, there is nothing to worry about. If they do less well this time around, it suggests they may have had help the first time around.
