About Psychometric Assessment
Ability Tests, such as numerical, verbal and diagrammatic reasoning.
Interest Inventories, which seek to measure the direction in which an individual wants their career to go. Particularly useful for career counselling.

- To support ongoing training and development activities, by offering a means of measuring the effectiveness of the training interventions.
- To increase the individual’s awareness of their own preferences and behaviour, enabling improved performance through greater self awareness.
