Hogan Assessments

Hogan assessment tests are intrinsically related as they each measure a different aspect of your personality. Currently, there are such five assessments:


The Hogan Personality Inventory assessment measures your day-to-day personality, also known as the bright-side.

It assesses how you relate to others. Employers use this assessment to determine how well you work with others, how you lead or follow, and if you are successful in certain positions.


The Hogan Development Survey measures your personality during times of stress, also known as dark-side personality.

It assesses how you manage relationships and issues in times of crisis. Employers use this assessment to ensure you are not a risk to their company.


The Hogan Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory assessment measures the motives behind your personality traits.

It assesses your values, core goals, drives, and interests so that employers can learn about what motivates you and in what job, position, and environment you will be most compatible.


The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory assessment measures cognitive abilities and skills.

It assesses your ability to evaluate data, problem solve, and make decisions.

Employers use this assessment to evaluate your problem-solving style.


The Hogan Judgement assessment measures an individual's approach to decision-making, his or her post-decision reaction, and his or her response to negative feedback.

It also measures verbal and numerical reasoning. Employers use this assessment to evaluate your ability to learn, adapt, and decide.

Together, these assessments form a comprehensive sketch of your full personality.

Hogan Reports

Hogan Reports, often called Hogan Products (by the Hogan company itself), provide employers with helpful tools and resources that make the hiring process easier. Currently, Hogan has five reports: Hogan Select, Hogan Develop, Hogan Lead, Hogan SafeSystem, and Hogan Team.

  • Hogan Select – This product helps employers make informed hiring decisions. It helps employers understand a potential employee's work style, drive, motivation, and behaviours. Being able to see and measure these qualities beforehand saves employers time and money.
  • Hogan Develop – This product helps identify key talents that employees may not be able to demonstrate in a 'regular' interview. This gives employers a chance to see more than a resume, and employees a chance to assess their strengths and weaknesses.
  • Hogan Lead – This product helps employers find leaders amongst candidates. Being able to find strong leaders in a sea of potential employees and resumes saves employers time and money, but it also gives future employees a chance to demonstrate their leadership skills.
  • Hogan SafeSystem – This product helps improve workplace safety. Hiring employees that care about safety (whether it be workspace safety or the overall safety of the company) will help generate longevity for the company.
  • Hogan Team – This product helps employers manage their employees and teams better. By understanding each person's strengths and weaknesses, employers and companies can create specialized teams to generate the best version of their products.

By providing practice tests, test information and content, samples, and more, JobTestPrep is able to help you pass these tests and get the job you deserve.
