Specialist Series Online Aptitude Tests

The Specialist Series Aptitude Tests assess the ability to reason with symbols, involving neither written text nor numbers. This ability is appropriate for specialist IT positions which involve extensive manipulation of information coded in symbols, particularly where coding is integral to the role. Specialist engineering (across all disciplines) and architectural roles rely extensively on this ability, where symbolic or coded representation is commonplace such as electric and chemical engineering.

Next Steps

Already trained and certified in aptitude testing?
For those already trained and certified in psychometric aptitude testing, we recommend purchase of The Psychometric Portal®. Thereafter you pay a low credit fee per candidate for the test and report.

Not currently certified in aptitude testing?
No problem! One obvious choice would be to consider training in Psychometrics. You may wish to consider our BPS Level 1 & 2 Certification which leads to an internationally recognised qualification and can be attended online or in-person. Alternatively, a faster route to qualification is via our Online Basic Psychometrics Course: Psychometrics for HR Decisions.

If you do not hold relevant qualifications and do not wish to undertake training, we can still assist by either giving you access to only text-based reports, or via our Psychologist-on-Call™ service wherein our psychologists will manage the process for you and then call you to explain all reports.
