Description


This course will also provide an appreciation of the range and type of measures available, and of the importance of using them with an ethical approach.

Psychometrics (measures of peoples' aptitudes and personality) are increasingly used in organisations for staff selection and development. Personality testing is a source of fascination for some but evokes scepticism in others. It is difficult for a non-specialist to identify well-established tests with a robust statistical basis in a situation in which tests are strongly marketed as commercial products. Managers are usually obliged to leave the choice, administration and interpretation of tests to suitably qualified experts. Yet, they may feel the need to know more, without having the time or inclination to becoming fully qualified in psychometrics.

The course refers briefly to ability and aptitude testing, but focuses on measures of personality. It is designed to enable people to make informed decisions as to whether they wish to qualify e.g. for the British Psychological Society-approved Level A and B Certificates in Occupational Assessment (a pre-requisite for many psychometric tests). It will provide you with some useful introductory information which will prepare you to undertake these interesting and intensive courses. Similarly, it includes relevant points on which to base a decision to become an accredited assessor for a number of other commercially provided tests.

Please note that this course is an independent review of the subject, designed for managers, and is not recognised by any supplier or accreditor of psychometric tests. Materials can be studied online or students have the option to have the printed materials delivered for an additional charge of £65.
