Psychometric Sample Questions and Answers

There are dozens of types of psychometric tests used by employers and universities. Below you will find several sample questions from some of the most popular types of these tests.


Free Numerical Reasoning Question Example

free-psychometric-numerical-question-1

The answer is:

 free-psychometric-numerical-answer-1

 

Explanation:

In order to answer this question we must use the figures given in the question as well as the formula for revenue which is:

Revenue = Price x No. Sold

To start with we must calculate Old Revenue which is the old price x old no. sold

Old revenue = 500 x 1.8 = 900

We must then calculate the new revenue given the target of the 50% increase

New revenue target = 900 x 1.5 = 1350

The next step is to calculate the new sales and hence the new price, given the increase of three quarters.

New sales = 500 x 1.75 = 875

New price = 1350 / 875 = $1.54

The final step is to calculate the percentage reduction in price using the % Growth Formula:

% Growth = [(Old Value – New Value) / Old Value] x 100 % Growth = [(1.80 – 1.54) / 1.80] x 100 = 14.44%


Free Logical Reasoning Question Example

The answer is:

The logic: The inner shape in one frame becomes the middle shape in the next frame; the middle shape becomes the outer shape in the next frame; and the outer shape becomes the inner shape two frames later. Thus, the outer shape in the missing frame should be a square (just like the middle shape in the 5th frame), the middle shape should be a triangle (like the inner shape in the 5th frame), and the inner shape should be a diamond (like the outer shape in the 4th frame).


Free Verbal Reasoning Question Example

The answer is:

Conclusion does not follow.

 

Explanation:

A = TV shows, B = boring, C = violent.

According to the premises, (A + ~B)*most, and (A + C)most.

The conclusion states (A + B + ~C)*at least one.

In formal logic tests, most means at least most, which is more than half, but possibly more, and even all. This means you cannot conclude that even a single (A + B + ~C) exists, because all you know is that most of A is ~B and that most A is C.

In other words:

It may be counter-intuitive, but if you are told that most TV shows are violent and not boring, that is the only thing you know. You know nothing about the items of the group not mentioned. Maybe all TV shows are violent.

Types of Psychometric Tests

Psychometric tests fall into many different categories. See below for some general information regarding the many types of psychometric tests:

Numerical tests assess your ability to answer questions dealing with graphs, tables, number sequence, and word problems. The level of maths required to answer each question in this sort of test will depend on the position you have applied for.

Verbal reasoning tests are used to evaluate your ability to draw conclusions and information from written text. During a verbal reasoning assessment, you will be asked to answer whether a statement following a passage can be verified by the information provided. You will be asked to answer by choosing ‘true’, ‘false’, or ‘cannot say’ for each statement.

Logical tests are mostly non-verbal and rely on several series of images to test your cognitive abilities. A few examples of logical reasoning tests include:

Abstract Reasoning: During this sort of reasoning test you will be asked to draw logical conclusions based on the information expressed through shapes, patterns and words.

Inductive Reasoning: These tests often include a series of shapes or matrices. Your job will be to decide which image comes next in a series, or which one is missing altogether in order to complete the series.

Deductive Reasoning: These tests are designed to examine your ability to apply a set of rules or premises that are known to be true onto a specific example.

Diagrammatic Reasoning: These tests involve drawing logical conclusions based on visual representations. Diagrammatic reasoning tests are similar to abstract, inductive and deductive reasoning tests.

A language or literacy test is used to assess your understanding of grammar and your ability to spell. These tests are important for jobs that require a higher level of English. To see how we can help prepare you for your English skills test, click here.

Technical-style are designed to gain insight into your numerical, visual, mechanical and/or spatial skills. These tests are administered for technically oriented job positions such as skilled and non-skilled technicians, mechanics, machine operators and more. For additional information on the best way to practise for your technical test, click here.

During a spatial reasoning test, you will be assessed on your ability to mentally navigate 2D and 3D images. These tests evaluate your spatial visualisation, mental folding and mental rotation abilities, as well as your spatial and visuospatial function.

Both mechanical and electrical aptitude tests assess your basic understanding of their concepts and terminology. Depending on your job level, the test you take may also require a higher level of analysis, including some amount of numerical calculations and an industry-specific context.

These tests are used to assess you on your attention to detail and your ability to spot errors. Error-checking tests are used for several different industries, including marketing, education, hospitality, engineering, etc. For additional information regarding our error-checking practice materials, click here.

These tests require you to be able to perform specific tasks quickly and accurately. Concentration tests are often given as part of the recruitment process for many roles including administrative and clerical, pilots, train drivers and other railway workers.

Tips for Passing Your Psychometric Tests

  • Practise makes perfect. This old saying still holds true. By taking your time to practise for your psychometric assessments, you will have no choice but to succeed.

  • Manage your time. More often than not, your psychometric test will be timed. It is best to practise for your test beforehand to familiarise yourself with the test format and questions. That way, you will be able to answer each question quickly and accurately. Our practice tests give you the option to take a step-by-step, untimed test to get used to the test format and answering style. Once you have taken the step-by-step test you can race the clock in the timed version to see how far you have come.

What's the Purpose of a Psychometric Test?

The purpose of psychometric and aptitude tests is to give employers insight into your cognitive capabilities and behavioural style. These tests are very useful in that they can highlight your strengths and weaknesses more so than your CV or a face-to-face interview. Most psychometric tests are given in a timed format with multiple-choice questions. These tests come in a variety of subjects and are used throughout many industries. Some of the most popular psychometric tests used by employers include numerical, verbal, and abstract reasoning assessments. Other popular pre-employment assessments include those for situational judgement and personality tests.

Our extensive online psychometric test database gives you the ability to become familiar with any type of psychometric test you could possibly imagine. The practice packs available on our website offer both a step-by-step and timed version of each test giving you the ability to learn as you go. Each of our unique PrepPacks™ provide in-depth score reports with full answer explanations to further stimulate your learning process.


How to Prepare for Your Psychometric Tests

These tests will evaluate numerous skill sets and give insight into your personal strengths and weaknesses relevant to the role or programme.

If you wish to stand out during the testing process, then practising beforehand is crucial to your success. Our full-length practice tests and in-depth study guides will stimulate your learning process and boost your test-taking abilities.
