Situational Judgement Tests
Situational Judgment Tests (SJT) test candidates’ critical thinking and decision-making regarding typical business situations for a particular position. These tests are short screening tools that help companies manage applications while improving the candidate experience during the selection process.
Why Situational Judgment Tests?
- They allow you to assess with increased certainty whether a candidate fits into a role or organisational culture, especially when it is difficult to assess experience
- They save time because they modernize the process of screening candidates and eliminate the requirement to review a large number of CVs.
- Assessment works both ways. 72% of candidates reported that they would rather accept an offer from a company that used a multimedia approach in its selection process.
Situational Judgement Tests are most useful in the early stages of the assessment process because it allows the elimination of candidates who do not possess the minimum level of the expected set of behaviours for a particular position, company, or organisational culture.
