Situational Judgement Tests

Bespoke Situational Judgement Tests for high volume recruitment campaigns

In addition to our Dilemmas Series™ of ready-to-use Situational Judgement Tests, a&dc have a wealth of expertise and experience in designing bespoke SJTs for client organisations. SJTs measure candidates’ judgement and common sense (also known as ‘tacit intelligence’), whilst also offering a relatively low-cost way of sifting high volumes of candidates.

When compared to general ability tests, Situational Judgement Tests have a much lower level of adverse impact (bias) against minority groups, giving you greater diversity across your workforce.

Why go Bespoke?

We’ll work with you to design tests that are aligned to your organisation’s branding and context, which give your candidates a realistic job preview early on in the assessment process.  This allows for self-selection and has also been shown to increase retention rates in successful candidates.
