What is different about management ability tests?

Executive psychometric tests are similar to other psychometric tests (such as verbal, numerical or inductive reasoning), but with some differences.

  • Management aptitude tests are harder. Questions require more complex calculations to solve them.
  • Time allocations per question may be shorter.
  • More emphasis is placed on management skills in the content of questions or in management personality tests.

Senior Management Tests

Senior management tests are usually aimed at chief executive, managing directors and director level (levels 1 and 2 in the organisation). All testing companies create specific tests for executive management psychometric tests, which will be tailored to the requirements of the company and the role. Prepare for your senior manager psychometric tests with our dedicated senior management tests practice packs.

Management Tests

Management online tests are aimed at junior and middle managers. The type of test you can expect are verbal and numerical critical reasoning tests and management personality tests or situational judgement tests. These tests are usually a part of testing companies’ graduate/ professional/ managerial batteries, although CEB’s SHL have created assessment batteries especially for managers. As well as the Management and Graduate Item Bank, junior managers and supervisors will usually sit tests from the Critical Reasoning Test Battery. Prepare for management reasoning tests with our range of preparation packs.

Graduate Management Tests

As a graduate management applicant you will need to prove you have a range of skills. The graduate management aptitude tests you can expect will be based on the psychometric tests typically expected in the sector you are applying to. Personality and situational judgement tests will focus on your management skills.
