Importance of psychometric testing

⦁ The power of psychometric testing is that there is a strong correlation between test scores and job performance, i.e. if you score highly in a psychometric test, the chances are that you are going to perform well in the job. As an employer, their predictive qualities make psychometric tests very attractive.

⦁ Add the fact that they can be administered quickly and efficiently on a large scale and you can see why psychometric tests have become the norm, especially for graduate recruitment

⦁ Extensive research has shown that actually, this is a fairly poor way to pick which candidates are going to be best for the job.

⦁ they are a cheap and effective way of distinguishing between candidates and accurately identifying who is likely to be successful in the job role.


⦁ They can be administered to candidates early on in the process and don’t require a face-to-face meeting, thereby reducing the time and costs associated with selection.
