TIPS AND FAQ’S
You have been invited for an online assessment. How do you prepare? 5 short tips:
TIP 1. TAKE AN ONLINE ASSESSMENT SERIOUSLY
Don’t think, “Oh, I’ll do that.” Organizations take the results of online assessments extremely seriously. So do this as a participant as well. In addition, you can benefit a lot from the results of an online assessment. It often provides clear tools and insights for your own development and choices.
TIP 2. KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT
Most online assessments consist of a personality measurement, motivation test and ability tests. You often know in advance which test(s) you need to take and what the purpose of the online assessment is. Our website contains a number of short tests so that you can see what to expect with the online assessments. Straight to the test .
TIP 3. PRACTICE CAPACITY TESTS
Make sure you know what kind of questions to expect. And most importantly, practice those pesky fractions or sequences one more time. For many people, solving these kinds of problems has somewhat sunk into the memory. Practicing this will save you time and an ability test always has a time limit. There are many websites where you can practice (for free). Also on our website is a short ability test to see what you can encounter. Straight to the test .
TIP 4. DO NOT TRY TO BEAT THE TEST
Answer honestly and spontaneously to a motivation test or a personality measurement. Do not pretend to be who you are, do not steer in the direction of the desired job profile. After all, you also want the future position to suit you.
TIP 5. A GOOD NIGHT’S REST AND A QUIET ENVIRONMENT
It seems like a no-brainer, but nothing could be further from the truth. Make sure you start an online assessment well-rested. In addition, make sure that you are not disturbed while taking the tests. Not in the office by colleagues, but also not at home by children running around or dogs barking. Also make sure you have a stable internet connection.
