Psychometric testing

Psychometric testing is common in the healthcare industry; we’ll help prepare you for this ahead of time, but here’s a brief overview.

Several different types of tests are used, but they’re all designed to look at the person that sits behind the competencies. They’re usually multiple-choice questions that are designed to measure your thinking and reasoning capabilities, particularly your analytical and reasoning ability. They’re taken under timed exam conditions and often include a numerical and verbal reasoning test.

There’s not a great deal you can do to prepare for these tests; they’re designed to ask the same question in a variety of ways and so you’ll be caught out if you say what you think your assessor wants to hear; put your business head on and answer as honestly as you can.
