Purpose: It will help you identify the person who has the mental ability to learn quickly, handle a large information load, process information quickly, and make decisions based on complex information. In addition, the test helps you identify people who have the leadership qualities necessary to direct the work of others, make decisions efficiently and in an ethical manner, stay on top of his/her department, motivate employees, focus on productivity indices, handle customers well, live up to their obligations, and work hard.
About the Test: This test battery has three parts (1) a 177 question untimed personality inventory and (2) a 44 item test of mental ability (about equal number of items for verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, and abstract reasoning), and (3) a set of 46 open-ended statements to which the candidate must type in short answers. This test will probably take most people 2 hours to complete although it will vary from person to person because all components are untimed.
Contrast to Manager Test: This test costs more than the Leadership test because it includes the open-ended sentence completion section.
What the Report Gives You: Graphical display of scores, explanation of aptitude results, list of strengths and developmental concerns, display of the narrative comments given to the open-ended statements, and suggested interview questions.
Testing Process: Online testing provides immediate reporting. Proctoring is desirable but not required.
