Aptitude test design

If you need to evaluate the skills of high volumes of candidates, our team of occupational psychologists can design, validate and build you a bespoke aptitude test.

A bespoke aptitude test will accurately assess candidates against the skills required to perform well in your specific role. Furthermore, it could be cheaper than using an off the shelf test.

Our approach

1. Define what to measure

The first step, we determine what it is you need to measure. For example, what skills, experience or particular knowledge is required to do a job.

Job analysis or employee assessments identify the competencies, skills, behaviours and strengths (factors) of the ideal employee for that role.

2. Design and build

The second step, we select or create the items (questions) which will objectively measure the factors identified in Step 1.

We create your assessment on the Tazio platform including the introduction and conclusion text, video introductions, scenarios and questions.

3. Validate and refine

Step three, we test your assessment with existing employees or a sample of candidates to ensure it correctly measures the appropriate factors.

We validate your assessment, removing or updating items as necessary. Once you’re happy your assessment is reliable and valid, you can start using it.
