What is a Psychometric Test?

It is a valid and reliability instrument on the basis of which inferences are made about individual differences such as personal characteristics or traits, underlying reasons for actions and possible future behaviour.

Psychometric Testing Falls Into Three (3) Main Types:

  • Aptitude Tests which measure the ability to perform or carry out different tasks
  • Interest Inventories which measure variations in motivation, in the direction and strength of our interests, and in values and opinions
  • Personality Tests which measure differences in the style or manner of doing things, and in the way people interact with their environment and other people.
