What is the Saville Wave Assessment?

The Saville Wave Test provides your potential employer with an extensive amount of information about you, and the results will determine not only whether your application is accepted but also how your employer perceives your leadership abilities, the most suitable role for you in the team, and many other factors. 

There are two versions of the Saville Wave Test, but the most common is the Wave Professional Styles.

The Saville Wave Professional Styles - 216 items, takes approximately 40 minutes to complete

The test is only available online and sent by e-mail. It includes two types of questions:

  • Likert ScaleThe first type asks you to reply to statements using a 9-point scale ranging from “very strongly disagree” to “very strongly agree”. At this stage, you can respond as you see fit, with no restrictions so that you can reply to two statements with the same response.
  • Forced-Choice/Ipsative AssessmentThe second type asks you to rate the statements which were placed equally in the first round again to indicate which one describes or suits you better. This time you will be given four statements, and you will need to choose one that is "most like you" and another one that is "least like you".

Excellent practice tests

The tests were excellent and certainly gave me practice for the actual tests I did the following day. Anyone who hasn't done any form of test for a long while should definitely do these tests before the actual assessments.

Very helpful
The sample tests were spot on. And the many examples of working through weak areas are exactly what I was looking for. The sooner people sign up before being tested, the better they will score in the real test, in my view.

Great Asset
I subscribed in order to get relevant practice for an upcoming assessment as part of a job interview. Just heard back I got 95% so on to the interview stage. What a great help these were particularly in managing time and managing nerves

Saville Wave Test Tips

  • The Saville Wave is an online questionnaire that is usually sent to the applicant's home. Take all the time you need to complete the questionnaire carefully and calmly.
  • The questionnaire provides the employer with a considerable amount of information that could have an impact beyond the current process and even determine future promotions. Therefore, pay careful attention to each question before answering.
  • When you fill in the questionnaire, pay close attention to the phrasing of the statements to determine whether they indicate Motive or Talent. Try to minimise the gaps between Motive and Talent questions in the same facet.
