Does your job application require you to pass a in-tray or e-tray exercise? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered!

Ability tests are a typical part of the selection process, or for development within the workplace. In-Tray and E-Tray exercises are one of the most commonly used aptitude tests that come up during a job application. In-Tray and E-Tray exercises are standardized psychometric assessment tests that provide the employing organization with information about a candidate’s general ability to manage and respond to a series of different tasks, to negotiate conflicting demands and analyze different priorities.
The exercise is based around a fictional business-related scenario where candidates are given a particular job role. It is important to know that both tests are in general based on the same principle. The largest difference between the In-Tray and E-Tray exercise is that the E-Tray variant is presented on a computer and all your responses are entered on-screen. The In-Tray exercise is based on a series of paper-based materials.
In-Tray and E-Tray exercises are usually given to candidates at an assessment centre, however they can be given at any stage and are sometimes given as a group exercise.
