About Management Tests

Management recruitment assessments can be split into two components: psychometric test and personality testManagement aptitude tests measure the skills you possess at your level of seniority.

What is Different about Management Ability Tests?

Executive psychometric tests are similar to other psychometric tests (such as verbal, numerical or inductive reasoning), but they possess 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 context of questions

Senior Management Tests

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

Management Tests

Management assessments are aimed at junior and middle managers. You can expect to take verbal reasoning, numerical critical reasoning, personality, situational judgement tests, or critical reasoning tests (especially the Watson Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal) during this time. These tests are usually part of testing companies' graduate/professional/managerial batteries, although SHL has created assessment batteries specifically for managers. In addition to management tests, junior managers and supervisors usually sit tests from a critical reasoning test battery. Prepare for management reasoning tests with our range of PrepPacks™.

Graduate Management Tests

As a graduate management applicant, you must prove you have a range of skills. The psychometric tests you take are based on the skills typically expected in the sector you are applying for. Personality and situational judgement tests, meanwhile, focus on your management skills.
