But what is a psychometric assessment?

A psychometric test is an effective tool for predicting a candidate’s job performance and competence by objectively evaluating their personality and cognitive abilities.

There are two main types of psychometric tests: ability tests and personality tests. Ability tests assess a candidate’s critical thinking skills, overall cognitive abilities, problem-solving skills, and ability to understand information.

Personality-focused psychometric tests provide valuable insight into how well an employee will integrate into your organisation.
