Assessment test: start testing immediately

For more than 15 years, TestGroup's Bridge assessment tests have been the most used tests by companies and organizations in many countries. At TestGroup, you can choose the test or assessment that best suits your organization. There are assessment tests for recruitment, selection or development. It is possible to order an assessment test individually (per candidate) or you can administer the tests via your own account on the online Bridge Assessment Platform.

What is an assessment test?

An assessment test is a psychological examination that provides insight into the suitability of a (future) employee for a specific role or function and/or the possibilities for development. Depending on the selection or development question and the level of the position, an appropriate set of tests is compiled. Components may include: a personality test, a capacity test, or a career test.

How does an assessment test work?

A TestGroup assessment test quickly gives you insight into the capabilities and competencies of employees or applicants. It also highlights strengths and areas for improvement, including concrete development tips. In addition to insight into the intelligence, competencies, and motivations of the participant, you also gain insight into the match between the participant's competencies and the requirements for the position. Because TestGroup has many different assessment tests available, you can choose your own tests.

With an assessment test, you can prevent making a wrong choice when selecting candidates.

Due to many job vacancies and few available candidates, it is important to quickly and efficiently gain insight into the personalities and intelligence of these candidates. An assessment test (containing a personality questionnaire and a cognitive capacity test) can help with this. It prevents making a wrong choice and saves the costs associated with this (which can amount to half a year's salary). An online assessment is therefore a good investment.

What are the components of a TestGroup assessment test?

Usually, companies and organizations use both a Big Five personality test and a cognitive ability test in an online assessment. Research has shown that, in addition to an interview, the use of these two tests provides the best selection result. At TestGroup, you can specify which tests you want to include in the online assessment and at what level (vocational, higher professional, or university).

Frequently asked questions about using an assessment test

  • What happens during an assessment test?

  • An assessment test is often a step in the application process. In this, online psychological tests are used to determine if there is a good fit between the applicant and the intended position. This can include a personality test or a cognitive ability test.

  • What is an assessment test?

  • An assessment test is essentially another term for a test that is administered during an assessment. This can be, for example, a personality test, competency test, or capacity test. At TestGroup, you can choose which test you will use for your candidate.

  • What is the difference between a free assessment test and a professional (paid) test from TestGroup?

  • A free test is a (too) short test that gives a general picture of a candidate. The general report states exactly what the candidate has filled in, not what the candidate's competencies are. Since free tests are not scientifically validated, the results of such a test are not valid or reliable. These short tests are often socially desirable to fill in: it shows exactly what the candidate wants it to show. This is of little use to a company or organization. Using these tests may seem advantageous, but because you do not find out the qualities of your candidate, using a free test can have expensive consequences.

    A paid (professional) assessment test like The Bridge Personality (personality test) and The Bridge Ability Suite (capacity test) are developed through extensive scientific research. As a result, the findings are reliable and valid. Because a professional test is much more comprehensive than a free test, the report is also much more specific. It details exactly what the personality, capacities, and competencies of the candidate are. Additionally, the professional tests from TestGroup use algorithms, making it impossible for a candidate to complete the test in a socially desirable manner.

  • How quickly can my candidate complete the test?

  • After you have requested the test for your candidate on the order page, your candidate can get started within 30 minutes. You will receive the report immediately after completion via email. The invoice is sent afterwards.

  • Which assessment or test should I choose?

  • That depends on your question and the position. Usually, a personality test and a capacity test are used. For the personality test, you can choose from different reports, and for the cognitive ability test, you can choose from three levels: vocational, higher professional, and university.

  • Are the assessment tests only available for companies and organizations?

  • Almost all tests from TestGroup are only available for companies, organizations, and governments. This is because our tests are developed for professional use. They can also order by invoice and pay afterwards.

  • How long does it take for the candidate to complete the assessment test?

  • The candidate will spend about 40 minutes on the personality test. The cognitive ability test is 3 times 18 minutes. There is also a short personality test available, which takes 12 minutes. The short cognitive ability test is 24 minutes.

  • How quickly is the assessment test report available?

  • Since your candidate completes the test online (at home or in the office), the report is immediately available. If you order individual tests from TestGroup, you usually have the reports in your mailbox within 15 minutes (after the candidate has completed the test).
