Watch our short video to learn about online psychometric assessments, what they are, and how they are used.

General hints for completing psychometric assessments

  • Get a good sleep the night before if possible
  • Try to relax
  • If you wear glasses or contact lenses, be sure to have them with you
  • Complete the assessment in a quiet place where you will not be interrupted or distracted – this is very important
  • Work alone. Do not discuss the questionnaire or your responses with anyone when completing the assessment
  • It is in your best interest NOT to complete assessments if:
    • You are tired, to the extent you believe it may impact your performance
    • You are experiencing stress (whether personal or work related), to the extent you believe it may impact your performance
    • You are ill, to the extent you believe it may impact your performance
    • There are other factors that may adversely affect your performance (e.g. physical, emotional or situational)
    • Your environment has potential distractions (e.g. your work desk).
  • If you have any disability or condition that may impact on your ability to complete the assessment (e.g. learning disability, colour blindness, etc.) an alternate assessment may need to be administered to accommodate for this.
