Psychometric testing refers to the process of measuring a candidate's relevant strengths and weaknesses. This form of measurement is primarily employed to assess employment suitability, including company/candidate fit. The aim of psychometric tests is to gain an accurate summary of the candidate's cognitive abilities and personality and relational style.
The process of testing candidates is a bimodal process.
In order to increase the validity of the psychometric testing process, p2p Recruitment endeavours to assess candidates using both cognitive tests and personality assessments. Implementing both forms of testing subsequently complements and increases the validity of the assessment process. Detailed below are the main areas of focus for both cognitive aptitude and personality assessments.
