Employers often use aptitude tests to measure a candidates’ intelligence, skills and reasoning ability. With this information, employers can assess your level of thinking, and predict your performance in a working environment. Next, to your skills and capabilities, employers also want to know how you react to certain situations and solve real-life problems. This is where simulation tests come into play. Simulation tests are used to assess how you would react to situations you can encounter while working and how you would solve problems. In these tests, you can also be assessed on your critical thinking ability. Your ability to reason critically is also an important trait for many functions.
Simulation tests serve as an evaluation tool for a lot of positions in a variety of business sectors. They are one of the most used psychometric tests because the employer gets a good insight into your attitudes, ability to solve problems, and how you handle real-life situations. These simulation tests can be challenging, because you may not know what to expect. Therefore, practice is highly recommended. The Simulation Preparation Package consists of all the different simulation tests employers use. The package contains the following tests:
- Error Checking
- In Tray and E-tray exercises
- Situational Judgement Test (SJT)
- Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Test
