Psytech Solutions was established and began producing high quality assessment software in 1984. They have since expanded and now have a complete range of Psytech tests, including a general reasoning test battery, graduate reasoning tests, a critical reasoning test battery, and a multidimensional aptitude battery.
The Psytech Graduate Reasoning Test, or GRT1 as it is known, is a combination of three different tests:
This test is used in assessing high-level staff (e.g. managerial positions, system analysts, accountants, SMPs, technical and scientific posts, etc).
Similar to GRT1, the General Reasoning Test (GRT2) also comprises a set of three different tests:
These are of a more basic nature and are more suited to non-graduate positions, such as accounts, clerks, junior sales, and administrative positions.
This test is an adaptive version of the aforementioned GRT1 and GRT2. Candidates who took it said it includes the exact same style of questions as those seen on the more basic editions.
The Abstract Reasoning Test (ART) is used to evaluate managerial and graduate candidates' 'fluid intelligence'. This test assesses the ability to react to foreign situations and deal with them in a strategic manner.
The Clerical Test Battery is a series of four tests. It is used in the hiring of clerical and administrative personnel.
Verbal reasoning (VR2) – This test is used to evaluate basic vocabulary as well as the capacity to reason using words.
Numerical ability (NA2) – On this test, candidates must perform calculations for tasks they will be expected to do in the office. For example, working out the unit pricing of goods.
Clerical checking (CC2) – This is a speed checking test in which the candidate must compare numerical information to the source file and discern if the two pieces of data are congruent.
Spelling (SP2) – This is a simple spelling test, assessing the candidate's ability to spell commonly used words in the workplace.
The Technical Test Battery (TTB2) is a 45-minute series of three tests aimed at applicants and trainees of a craft or technician level. These tests closely resemble the work the candidate can expect to encounter in the workplace.
Mechanical reasoning (MRT2) – This test is used by the employer to understand the candidate's ability to comprehend different mechanical and physical principles in action.
Spatial reasoning (SRT2) – The candidate is presented with two-dimensional pictures that have to be envisaged in 3D. There are a variety of different shapes and patterns to identify.
Visual acuity (VAC2) – This test assesses the candidate's ability to check and repair circuitry and components.
The Critical Reasoning Test Battery (CRTB2) is a set of two tests designed for a high-level position, such as a manager or a graduate. It is used to assess the critical reasoning skills needed for positions that require rational and consistent decisions.
Verbal critical reasoning (VCR2) – The candidate is provided with a paragraph of complex information that includes number of key facts cleverly designed to be slightly hidden in the text. These facts need to be extrapolated from the text by means of different, often cryptic, questions.
Numerical critical reasoning (NCR2) – There is wide range of numerical data presented to the candidate in the form of tables, graphs, and percentages. This data requires evaluation and calculation to answer the questions posed.
The Contact Centre Scenario Inventory (CCSI) is used to assess candidates applying for jobs in the contact centre sector. It takes the form of a situational judgement test (SJT), which is a well-known assessment used a many different situations. The candidate is presented a state of affairs and must choose the response most suited to them. JobTestPrep offers a complete guide, as well as a number of high quality SJT practice tests, outlining how to excel on this assessment.
