Employers choose to use psychometric testing during their recruitment process to help give a better overall evaluation of candidate’s and their suitability for the job that they’re applying for. Psychometric testing could help to gauge the future performance of candidate's and also improve employee retention by making successful hiring decisions.
Preparing for an assessment centre or online aptitude test can be stressful due to the fact that you don’t know what to expect. The best way to familiarize yourself is with practice aptitude tests that mimic the tests used by employers and recruiters. Assessment-Training.com has prepared thousands of candidates for their assessments and aptitude tests by offering realistic test simulations with fully worked solutions.
In-Tray and E-Tray exercises are used in combination with other selection techniques, such as psychometric tests (numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning etc.), group exercises, presentations, case study interviews and role play exercises. This means that the performance on all exercises included in the selection procedure are taken into account. So don’t worry if you didn't perform your best on one of the tests; performance on others may make up for this. However, it must be noted that due to the character and work place relevance of this exercise it is widely regarded as a reliable tool for selection purposes, and performance on this specific exercise could be an important factor in the decision making process.
