Psychometric Tests

At The Test Factory we have a dedicated team of Occupational Psychologists who design world-class people assessments, helping our clients gain insights into a person’s character traits such as ability, behaviour, personality, motivation and knowledge.

Psychometric testing is now used by over 80% of the Fortune 500 companies in the USA and by over 75% of the Times Top 100 companies in the UK. Tests are used by many employers across most sectors, including IT, engineering, energy, banking, consultancy, accountancy, retail, the civil service and other public sectors.

The word psychometric is formed from the Greek words for mental and measurement. Psychometric tests attempt to objectively measure aspects of your mental ability or your personality. They are designed to provide employers with a reliable method of selecting the most suitable candidates for promotion.

There are two main types of psychometric tests:

Ability Tests
Measure your ability to perform or carry out different tasks. A typical example of this type of test is a numerical reasoning test (click here for an example)

Personality Tests
Measure your way of doing things, and specifically the way you interact with your environment and other people. A typical example of this type of test is a Situational Judgement Test (click here for an example).

We offer a full range of both ability tests and personality tests, as well as 360 degree assessment, assessor training and competency framework design.
