In-tray Exercise - Psychometric Glossary

A type of simulation aimed at assessing a subject's analytical and organisation skills, an in-tray exercise involves sorting a managing a hypothetical inbox. The subject is presented with an inbox and must sort, respond to, and classify the e-mails, magazine clippings, press releases etc efficiently. This differs from an e-tray exercise as it is usually paper-based and static (i.e. no new information arrives during the task).
