Purpose: This assessment helps you identify people who are comfortable working around children, handle frustration well, come across as easy-going and cheerful, willing to work within rules and regulations, work hard and do not seek opportunities to slack off, work well in a team, and are comfortable around children. The test also measures mental aptitude to help you judge who will learn quickly, profit from instruction, and make good decisions when there are no ready guidelines to follow.
About the Test: This test consists of two parts (1) a 142 question personality inventory, (2) a 44 item test of general cognitive aptitude with about equal number questions for verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, and abstract reasoning. It probably takes about 60-90 minutes to complete it although this will vary from person to person because it is untimed. Note: If you are looking for a similar test without aptitude (for a lower price), please see the “Child Care Worker / Camp Counselorâ€ assessment.
What the Report Gives You: Graphical display of scores, narrative interpretation of aptitude results, list of strengths and developmental concerns, and suggested interview questions.
Testing Process: Online testing provides immediate reporting. Proctoring is desirable but not required.
