Print Assessment Test: Done. Now What?

You’ve just completed your first round of assessment or aptitude testing, congrats! And now what? Instead of sitting around waiting for the phone to ring here are a few tips:
  • Timing is everything: It could take a few days to a few weeks for assessors to provide feedback results. Part of the British Psychological Society guidelines are to provide each assessment test participant with individual feedback, and it can take some time to compile results and respond to all the candidates, so try to be patient.
  • Consider your responses: If you had difficulty with a specific psychometric assessment test question or format you may want to review soon after the test, so you don’t forget. Reviewing questions will be a big help for future tests. There are tons of online resources where you can find the answers to particular questions (including our practice tests), and you may research better methods to approach a test or take one of our webinar trainings.
  • Ask yourself: Did you do as well as you could? What would you do differently next time? By asking these questions you can improve your testing abilities and ensure you are even better prepared for your next test.
  • Make notes: Write down everything you remember that was significant about your test; including rules, question formats, and even specific questions that stood out. The more you can remember and review about your first test for a job, the better chance you will have of improving future results.
  • Listen: When you talk to your assessor about your test results, listen to what they have to say. You may not be thrilled with the results (particularly if this was your very first aptitude or assessment test), but this is the perfect opportunity to find out exactly how to get better. Feel free to ask questions, these are the ones who are the experts on psychometric tests, so they will have the answers.
  • Keep practicing: You can never have enough practice for assessment and aptitude tests. Continue taking free online tests to improve your skills and get more comfortable with taking these types of tests, as it will certainly provide you with the tools you need to get successful test results next time.
  • Celebrate: You’ve completed a difficult task, one that required significant preparation and lots of concentration, so take a moment to celebrate your achievement before you start preparing for what comes next.
Hopefully in the near future you will receive a call to schedule an interview, but if not consider this first round as a dry run, meaning next time you will be ready to give it your best!
