16 Preparing for observed assessments 16

17 observed assessments Ability tests What are these? Written exercise /In-tray (Higher Apprentices) Group/de-brief case study exercise 17

18 observed assessments Ability tests Reasoning tests, e.g. verbal, numerical or logical Supervised and unsupervised testing (timed) Objective form of assessment Standardised and fair Can practice ability to be sure to perform at your best, e.g. for a numerical exercise: - do daily calculations in your head (e.g. shopping, discounts) - read numerical information in various forms (e.g. financial newspapers and web sites Practice session today Online facilities to practice further

19 observed assessments Written exercise You are provided with a scenario to write about. Be clear and keep to the point. Use good grammar and appropriate punctuation. Structure your report so that the main points can be found easily. Explain your (provide facts or figures) so that the reader can follow your logic. The in-tray exercise will ask you to select from multiple choice answers as well as complete a written communication. 19

20 observed assessments Group exercise You are provided with a scenario to discuss. Use the preparation time to get an understanding of the topic to be discussed. Express yourself and your ideas clearly. Invite others to express themselves and listen to their ideas. Avoid competitive behaviours; the group shares responsibility for the outcome achieved. Aim to meet the exercise objectives; keep track of the time available and the objectives the group has been given. 20

21 Practical session Group assessment 21

22 Practical session We will now practice a group discussion exercise Please treat this session as you would a real assessment session: - concentrate on the instructions - cooperate with your fellow group members - manage your time to meet your objective 22

23 Practical session Your turn to talk How did you find that? Did you express your ideas? Did you listen to others ideas? What did you find easy about working as a team? What was most difficult about working with the rest of the team? What can you do differently next time? How did the session compare with what you may have expected? 23

24 Practical session Psychometric assessment 24

25 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Reasoning Logical Reasoning Why will employers use a numerical test? Numerical tests give you an opportunity to make decisions or inferences from numerical data, presented in reports, graphs and tables. Numerical goes beyond simple use of data; when doing a numerical test you can demonstrate your ability to plan, prioritise and analyse data, see trends and follow numerical and logic. These skills are relevant to a range of functions that require working with money or finance, also general management, finance and sales to data processing. 25

27 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical 27 27

28 Preparing for a psychometric assessment If you were told you were going to do a numerical test, how would you prepare? Remind yourself of the basics of mathematics, with and without using a calculator. Can you calculate percentages, ratios, fractions, currency conversions etc? Read the financial section of a quality daily newspaper. It will help familiarise you with financial and numerical information. Look at numbers presented in tables and charts and see if you can establish the relationships between the numbers. Practise doing maths puzzles. Such as adding up your shopping bill in your head, especially if discounts are applied to the price; keep the score of a game you are playing (like darts or cards). 28

29 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical Why will employers use a verbal test? Verbal tests measures your ability to reason with and to evaluate the logic of verbal information. The process is similar to the skills required to summarise large reports and extract verbal data at meetings. It's very relevant for roles that require analysis of verbal information. 29

32 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical If you were told you were going to do a verbal test, how would you prepare? 32

33 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical If you were told you were going to do a verbal test, how would you prepare? Read newspapers, journals, reports and books Have a go at solving verbal puzzles for example crosswords or word finding games Practice reading passages of information and summarising the key points 33

34 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical Why will employers use a logical test? Logical is a measure of, which is independent of an individual s numerical or verbal ability The test provides an opportunity to work through problems and isolate information or rules that are relevant to solving the problems This sort of is relevant for jobs which require the capacity to learn new things and work through complex problems in a logical, systematic and analytical manner 34

35 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical What comes next in the sequence? 35

36 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical If you were told you were going to do a logical test, how would you prepare? You can sharpen your logical ability by doing abstract or shape-based puzzles Review diagrams you have at home, such as manuals for electric circuits of your household appliances or selfassembly instructions for furniture. Try to understand the manufacturer s presentation of the information, then draw one of your own Take some time to play sequence or strategy games like draughts or chess, make an effort to plan your moves ahead of time, considering the reactions that would result Think about the sequenced tasks you d do. What steps would you take when planning a holiday? 36

37 Practical session Your turn to talk How did you find that? How did the session compare with what you may have expected? Do you feel any differently about doing tests in future? 37

38 Practical session Understanding your results You might not have been able to answer all. You might not have got them all right. Did you work quickly? Did you work accurately? Don t take your score on this particular test too seriously; these tests are short and less accurate than real tests 38

39 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical Work style preference questionnaire Other tips: Book into Careers Service for test session Look at websites, for example: Practise using the skills that are to be assessed If you have a disability, inform your recruiter prior to attendance 39

40 Preparing for a psychometric assessment Numerical Verbal Logical Work style preference questionnaire Other tips: Much like when you re taking any test, such as an interview or exam, give yourself the best possibly opportunity to perform at your best: Get a good night s sleep Give yourself plenty of time to get to the session Listen to what you re asked to do. Pay full attention to test instructions Read through questions carefully Work through quickly but accurately 40

41 Summary points of all assessments 41

42 Summary points What more can you do to prepare for an assessment exercise? Review any preview information you are offered thoroughly Get a good night s sleep and allow plenty of time to get to your session Take a watch along so that you can manage your time Listen carefully to the instructions and ask if anything is unclear Make sure you understand the answers to any examples offered Read through questions carefully (or check your understanding in an interview) When you are being timed, work as quickly and accurately as you can If you have time when you ve completed an assessment, go back and check your answers 42
