Purpose: It will help you identify the person has good managerial skills to oversee operations, delegate well yet stay on top of assigned tasks, communicate respect to employees, motivate well, maintain a good flow of information, act in a reliable, stable, level-headed manner, and be prepared to work hard to meet obligations. In addition, the test helps you determine if the candidate has the mental capacity to deal with challenging problems as well as relate well to other managers and executives in the company.
About the Test: This test battery has three parts (1) a 141 question untimed personality inventory and (2) an untimed 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.
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.
