A-Z Guide to Talent Q Tests

Talent Q (est. 2005) are a relatively new player in the psychometric testing field. Founded by one of the co-founders of SHL their tests are becoming increasingly more popular and are used by the likes of Astra Zeneca, BT, Carlsberg, Citi, RBS, Royal Mail and Volkswagen. Here you can learn more about how JobTestPrep can help you prepare for Talent Q’s Elements ability tests, the psychometric tests series that is used for selection and talent management.

As mentioned above, the founder of Talent Q is one of the co-founders of SHL. Our data shows that the content of Talent Q's ability tests does differ from SHL's or Saville's (another former SHL founder) in terms of concepts, test formats and question types. One of the differences is that the tests are adaptable. This means that judging by whether your response to a question is correct or incorrect the system will present you with a consequent question of either greater or lesser difficulty until your appropriate level of difficulty is found. This ability and performance based testing method allows the tests to be relatively shorter (a maximum of 16 minutes per Element) as candidates only take questions for their ability level.

The fact that the test is adaptable does NOT inflict on candidates in any way, since they are still expected to answer the questions correctly. It only gives Talent Q a way to shorten the assessment process and a unique selling point in comparison to other assessment companies that do not use the adaptability technology. Therefore, practising for these tests remains relevant and is highly recommended.

There are a number of different groups of assessments and we will outline them below:

Talent Q Dimensions

In a 25 minute timeframe, the Dimensions online personality questionnaire is able to accurately measure a person’s personality across the different fields. These are: People and Relationships, Tasks and Projects, and Drives and Emotions.

You will be given a statement such as: How true is each statement below about you in relation to your behaviour at work? You will be given four different statements and you have to rate them on a five option true-based scale with the most being very true and the least being completely untrue. There are 160 of these statements in regards to different behavioural trends. Learn more about personality tests
