Situational Judgement tests (SJTs) are designed to measure a variety of factors required to be successful in a particular role (or set of roles) within an organization. They are widey accepted as very robust and valid assessments due to their clost match to the hiring organization's culture and role requirements.
An SJT can be used to measure a range of criteria, including: key competencies, organisational values, culture fit, motivation, preferred behaviour and attitude.
How does it work
Our situational judgement tests present you with a series of realistic work-related scenarios. Each question contains a number of different actions to choose from, and it is your job to decide which of these is the most effective course of action in the given situation. The purpose of the test is to assess your ability to make effective judgements in response to various scenarios. Your responses are then measured against the required competencies and a ‘fit’ score is generated.
You should receive feedback on your situational judgement test direct from the recruiter, hiring organization or your employer. Even if it isn't initially offered, don't be afraid to ask for feedback on your performance as it may help in future situations.
