How our test assesses leadership skills
In Picked's leadership test, candidates will need to answer a range of situational judgment questions that challenge a candidate’s competency in leadership. The test is designed to indicate how well can a candidate make leadership-level decisions, which can then be compared to the scores of other applicants.
The test presents a scenario for the candidates to review before selecting what they believe to be the most and least effective actions to take in response. The other available options are mostly generic mistakes or misconceptions, which makes the test challenging and helps measure a candidate's ability more accurately.
During the development process, the test was rigorously analyzed to maximize reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. It was created and tested by psychometric experts, and designed to assess leadership skills in a sample of job applicants who have varying professional experience.
Each test is reviewed by a panel of individuals representing diverse backgrounds to check for any sensitivity, fairness, face validity and accessibility issues. This ensures each candidate has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of expertise.
Our leadership test is monitored to ensure it is up-to-date and optimised for performance.
