  • Practice leads to improved performance in psychometric tests
    that effective preparation improves test results in tests such as IQ innovation and psychometric tests However these findings have been known for quite a while A study from the 60s that investigated the impact of intensive training six hours of training revealed that such training can improve people s IQ intelligence by nine points on average While this is not a huge improvement it can be all that you need to get in front of other applicants for the same job The most detailed research on the effects of test preparation on adults was published in North America in 1979 by the US Federal Trade Commission The research focused on the SAT exam which is an intelligence test completed by adults in the US who would like to study in a college The SAT exam similar to the psychometric test has verbal and numerical reasoning components The research findings proved that an effective preparation improves people s scores in the verbal and numerical reasoning tests Other research done by the US Education Testing Services also found that with the proper preparation people improve their scores on the verbal and numerical reasoning tests by 20 to 35 points on average The conclusion is clear you can prepare for the psychometric test but you must take the proper training to ensure that you maximise the benefits of such a preparation Who can improve their psychometric skills and achievements Those who have never completed psychometric testing If you have never completed psychometric testing before you will be able to quickly learn what the different tests are understand the types of questions you will be getting and learn how to effectively answer them You will be able to practise real tests that match the requirements of the job you applied for You will receive a personalised report with a detailed explanation of what employers will learn from your specific test result about your work suitability as well as specific recommendations on areas that you need to improve Those who have completed psychometric testing in the past If you have taken the test before you have a better understanding of what to expect in the test If you were successful in landing the job as a result you should know that in psychometric testing past results do not guarantee future results You may be applying for a job with different requirements or you may be competing with more skilful applicants this time Preparing for the psychometric test requires more than experience in taking the test You can improve your results by learning and practising the different types of questions The more you learn and practise the more you can improve your results If you have failed to get the job you applied for or the promotion you wanted because of your results in the psychometric test you may feel despair You may even think that you don t have a chance You should know that many components in psychometric tests are based on acquired knowledge

  • Aptitude tests guide
    and crystallised intelligence The theory of fluid and crystallised intelligence suggests that people s intelligence is composed of a number of different abilities that interact and work together to produce overall individual intelligence Fluid intelligence is the ability to think and reason abstractly and solve problems It s more commonly known as street smarts or the ability to quickly think on your feet This ability is considered independent of learning past experience and education Examples of the use of fluid intelligence include coming up with problem solving strategies ability to quickly learn new skills ability to quickly integrate new information strategic thinking etc The aptitude test that measures your fluid intelligence is called abstract reasoning The second component of intelligence that the aptitude tests measure is crystallised intelligence Crystallised intelligence is the ability to learn from past experiences and relevant learning and to apply this learning to a situation Employers obviously will only be interested in your ability to apply your learnings to work related situations Work situations that require crystallised intelligence include comprehending written reports and instructions ability to produce reports ability to use numbers as a tool to make effective decisions etc This type of intelligence is based upon facts and rooted in experiences and becomes stronger as we age and accumulate new knowledge and understanding There are many aptitude tests that measure different aspects of crystallised intelligence The most common are verbal reasoning numerical reasoning spatial reasoning and mechanical reasoning Popular aptitude tests Abstract reasoning Also called conceptual reasoning this test is unique in its design It is a non verbal test which uses shapes rather than words or text to measure someone s fluid intelligence Each test question includes a series of shapes with common logical rules Your fluid intelligence is measured by the number of correct answers i e correct identification of the shapes logical rules within the given time Read more about the abstract reasoning test Verbal reasoning test This is a timed test that is designed to measure your verbal analytical skills or verbal reasoning skills These skills include the capacity to quickly identify critical issues from written material such as reports and logically derive conclusions from written facts or data If for example you can process written documents and can come up with the most important content fairly quickly then there is a good chance that you have high verbal reasoning skills Read more about the verbal reasoning test Numerical Reasoning Test This test is also a timed test It measures your numerical analytical skills or numerical reasoning skills These skills include the capacity to quickly identify critical issues from numerical data such as graphs and tables It also includes the capacity to use work related numerical data such as performance figures or financial outcomes to make effective decisions It is important to note that numerical reasoning skills don t measure your mathematical ability Read more about the numerical reasoning test Other aptitude tests that measure your crystallised intelligence but are less
