Why use Situational Judgement Tests?

Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) are a highly effective and increasingly popular way to predict the performance of prospective employees.

Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) assess a candidate's ability to choose the most appropriate action in workplace situations. Candidates are presented with a series of realistic work-related scenarios, either as a video, animation or simple text description. They are then asked to select their most and least effective responses from several possible actions.

The benefits of using situational judgement tests include:

  • Their results provide a more accurate prediction of employee performance
  • Automatic scoring means their results are unbiased and error free
  • Results can be linked to competencies, which can be mapped to the requirements of the role
  • It's easy to invite candidates to take tests, track their progress and view scores
  • Using a situational judgement test increases retention rates in successful candidates

Tazio works closely with a number of the UK's leading providers of situational judgement tests. Together we have developed a series of ready-to-use situational judgement tests for a range of popular roles.

Each test presents the candidate with a series of typical job related scenarios, randomly selected from an extensive library. This removes the risk of candidates finding out the questions in advance and gaining an advantage.

Each test is designed to assess candidates against the competencies, strengths and behaviours required to perform well in the relevant role.

At the end of the test, candidates are sent a detailed feedback report, explaining how they performed and where appropriate, provides suggestions and advice on how they might improve.

Recruiters receive a candidate report showing their score for each competency and how this compares with the average for that test.

Bespoke Situational Judgement Tests

Designing a situational judgement test that incorporates aspects of your culture, values and 'how you operate', means your test is measuring what's important to you, adding significant value to your recruitment process.

Working with one of our occupational psychologists, we can design a test specific to your organisation, department, or an individual role. Alternatively, if you have the expertise in-house, you can easily create and manage your test on the Tazio platform.

Creating your own test can also gives candidates a realistic job preview early on in the recruitment process. Offering a job preview has been shown to increase retention rates in successful candidates.
