About Hudson

The Hudson assessment test is a set of psychometric tests including the Hudson Reasoning Ability Tests, and the Business Attitudes Questionnaire. Read on for more information about each test.


Hudson Reasoning Ability Tests

The Hudson Reasoning Ability Tests are a set of three tests: an abstract, numerical, and verbal reasoning test. Each test is available in four levels: operational workers, junior managers, middle and senior managers. As a group, the tests are designed to assess the following skills:

  • Ability to Plan
  • Technical Insight
  • Speed and Accuracy
  • Spatial Insight
  • Analytical Insight

If you take all three tests your employer is given a report with an overall score suggesting your level, and three sub-scores reflecting your working style, or strengths.


Hudson Business Attitudes Questionnaire

The Hudson personality test is an online test designed to predict how a candidate will behave in the workplace. This test looks at 25 different dimensions of personality, and at the end of the test you are given a report against each of the Big 5 personality traits of emotional stability, extraversion, openness, altruism, and conscientiousness. The test is untimed, but you are encourages not to take too long answering each question.

On this test you are asked to assess yourself against a number of statements and asked to rate how much you agree or disagree with each statement, with A meaning you totally disagree, and E meaning you totally agree. You are asked to answer truthfully, giving examples of your usual ways of thinking and acting, and not how you would like to behave.

Ahead of taking any personality test, it is a good idea to take a practice test to familiarise yourself with the types of questions you will be asked and to get yourself thinking about you and your qualities. Knowing in advance how to answer these questions will enable you to give the best possible account of yourself, including choosing between similar sounding personality traits or assessing the same trait differently at points in the test.
