Situational Judgement Tests

Situational Judgement tests assess how a candidate approaches various scenarios in the workplace.

  • What are situational judgement tests?

    Situational Judgement tests assess how a candidate approaches various scenarios in the workplace. These tests are designed to assess a candidate's response to typical workplace scenarios.

    Developed by chartered occupational psychologists, our situational judgement tests assess a full range of skills which are essential to the everyday working environment.

  • Why do employers use situational judgement tests?

    Employers use situational judgement tests as they reveal a range of skills used my employees in the working environment. Since they cover a full spectrum of practical and transferable skills, it's no surprise these are used by employers hiring for a wide range of roles.

  • What is the situational judgement test format?

    Situational judgement tests include a 'workplace scenario' and a series of multiple choice questions to check how the candidate would act in that scenario. Tests are timed to ensure candidates are judged both for quality and speed.

    The number of questions and the amount of allotted time vary from test to test, but typically candidates will be given about one minute per question.

  • What skills does situational judgement assess?

    Situational tests assess a wide range of candidate skills such as relationship building, teamwork, customer focus, market awareness etc. On top of these, situational judgement tests will reveal a candidates ability to focus on key information, to handle pressure and work under time constraints.

    How difficult are the tests?

    We have two levels of situational judgement tests so they can be used for all levels within a company. The foundation level is typically given to more vocational roles, while the advanced level is used more senior and management positions.

    How long do the tests last?

    The allotted time for the situational judgement tests vary, but they're typically 15 - 20 minutes long. Likewise, the number of questions will be dependent on the complexity, but as a guide, candidates will be given about one minute per question.

    Are these tests available in my plan?

    We have a range of plans available. The difference between the plans is the number of test attempts permitted, not the type of tests. All our plans include our full test suite comprising all tests and all levels.

    Can I see what the test is like?

    Yes, of course. You can see a test by clicking on the 'view example' button at the top of the page. This test includes a mixture of foundation and advanced level questions so you get a full understanding of the various levels.
