  • Practicing Online Psychometric Tests versus Practicing Paper Versions
    of psychometric tests Psychometric test developers attempt to ensure that these different modes of delivering psychometric tests produce the same results However there are inevitable differences in these modes that can lead to differences in the results of your psychometric test Clariana and Wallace 2002 reported that your chance of getting equivalent scores on a paper based psychometric test and a computerised practice psychometric test is only about 50 Because of these differences between test delivery modes it has been found that practicing in the same mode that the psychometric test will be administered in formally i e online is important Practicing psychometric tests from books or other paper based tests would be to your disadvantage This is referred to as the practice psychometric test mode effect Transfer appropriate processing TAP theory helps to further explain the test mode effect This theory of memory stresses the importance of practicing in a similar mode to a psychometric test proposing that results are dependent on the extent that the mode for retrieval the psychometric test procedure resembles the encoding conditions the preparation and practice mode for your psychometric tests In an article Paper based Versus Computer based Assessment Key Factors Associated with the Test Mode Effect it was reported that practicing online psychometric tests and computer practice generally had a significant positive effect on psychometric test results It has been found that psychometric test takers who were less familiar with taking tests online did not do as well in online psychometric tests and practise in this mode of delivery would have been beneficial Clariana Wallace 2002 A relevant key factor of the test mode effect for you in regards to practicing for your psychometric tests is how familiar you are with various online psychometric tests such as aptitude tests and personality test s and importantly how familiar you are with this mode of delivery not just the content When preparing for psychometric tests it is important to familiarise your self with the unique features of online psychometric tests therefore practicing psychometric tests online increases your psychometric test results Differences between traditional paper based practice psychometric tests i e practice psychometric tests taken from books and online practice psychometric tests include how the items appear visually how they are ordered and whether the test offers you the experience of working under real time limits The order presentation of online psychometric tests items is predominantly randomised In contrast traditional paper based psychometric tests do not have this functionality Additionally often computerised psychometric test items are presented one by one on separate screens meaning that you are being more interactive as you are navigating to the next item In contrast traditional paper versions of psychometric tests list multiple questions on each page Online practice psychometric tests offer you the possibility to practise solving test questions under time limitations In contrast traditional practice tests taken from books do not offer this important learning experience Free Practice Tests Take our free tests to discover whether you need

  • CAT type psychometric tests
    in various areas including employee recruitment Psychometric tests which are based on CAT include aptitude tests reasoning tests verbal reasoning tests and numerical reasoning tests O nline psychometric tests have many advantages over traditional paper based tests such as reduced administration time However the use of CAT in psychometric testing opens up new possibilities and provides further advantages such as further reduced test taking time and increased reliability for measuring candidates aptitude Forbey Porath 2007 CAT reduces the number of items in online psychometric tests by optimally adapting items to the individual test taker Fetzer Meade 2008 Whilst there are differences between CAT and traditional online psychometric tests practicing for psychometric tests which are built on CAT is identical to practicing for other forms of online psychometric tests Most of the differences between online psychometric tests and CAT psychometric tests include the science working behind the scenes This science is referred to as Item response theory IRT which is the most common psychometric approach to CAT ability and achievement forms of psychometric testing This adaptive approach is designed to estimate the test takers ability or variable of interest to the employee selection panel by adaptively choosing new items for the individual test taker based on the estimate of his her knowledge skill ability or other characteristic being evaluated by the test obtained from previous responses That is in online psychometric tests based on CAT a computer selects the items from an item bank that are most relevant for and informative about the ability of the particular test taker thus optimising test relevance and precision and reducing test taking time CAT psychometric tests balance accuracy with efficiency The intention of this type of psychometric testing is to provide a challenging and motivating situation for the test taker CAT aims to produce unique psychometric tests best fitted to the individual test taker to produce optimal and precise responses Although the psychometric testing properties and science behind CAT are quite complex the process as experienced by the individual test taker is not So how does CAT work in an online psychometric test If you get an item correct the computer selects a harder item and administers it next If you get an item wrong the computer selects an easier item to go next This process continues until either the computer has enough information to produce a reliable psychometric test score or the test taker has reached the maximum number of items to be administered whichever comes first This process is described as item matching In summary this approach has a number of advantages over the paper and pencil psychometric testing approach and the traditional fixed item online psychometric testing approach Practicing online psychometric tests based on CAT is the same as practicing for traditional online psychometric tests CAT psychometric tests are also computer based and are predominantly administered online Predominantly CAT psychometric tests are administered via a keyboard or a touch screen thus online practicing for these types of psychometric tests is ideal

    match using psychometric tests Matching candidates and jobs based on psychometric tests More and more organisations are using psychometric tests to aid the employee selection process to help them get the right person The use of psychometric testing gives large and small organisations a competitive edge Organisations want to know more about job seekers these days wanting to discover their core competencies through the selection process Being aware of these desirable core competencies is a good place for you to start so that you can then better prepare for and practice psychometric tests such as aptitude tests and personality tests Certain interesting trends in organisation design highlight that the compatibility between employers and an organisation has become and is becoming more and more important Employers want you to share similar characteristics as their organisation and they use psychometric tests to assess how you fit with the organisation the ability to which the employer and employee will be able to meet each others needs Organisations assess aspects such as general intelligence and personality traits through psychometric testing to provide an indication of person and organisation fit It is advisable for you to develop job knowledge and to practice psychometric tests to positively present your self as the right person for the job Practicing psychometric tests among other things increases your self awareness your understanding of your personality and values and can decreases your performance anxiety during psychometric testing Because psychometric testing is often conducted by external organisations hiring organisations are developing very specific descriptions of their desired employees through defining the key competencies that are important to them Desirable competencies assessed by psychometric tests include an ability to adapt quickly and deal with change as well as networking political skills and individual strategic capability The notion of emotional intelligence which is how well a person understands their emotions and is aware of emotional states of others has become increasingly important Highly developed interpersonal communication skills related to teamwork are also a key deciding factor Another interesting trend that affects the selection process is that more people are comfortable using a computer and the internet This trend encouraged psychometric test developers to administer psychometric tests online rather than asking candidates to come into an office to complete paper based tests This change imposed a significant challenge for test takers as it significantly reduced the effectiveness of traditional practice books Test takers who are practising questions out of books lose the capability to use practice psychometric tests under real conditions i e time constraints and having test questions displayed on a computer screen This is especially important when solving aptitude tests abstract reasoning tests verbal reasoning tests and numerical reasoning tests Free Practice Tests Take our free tests to discover whether you need to improve your psychometric test aptitude tests and personality test scores Personality Free Test Aptitude Free Tests Course Previews Preview our psychometric test aptitude test and personality test courses online Preview Courses Buy Preparation now Partnering with Testimonials Wanted to
