The Situational Judgement Test: All You Need to Know 


Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) have become a popular psychological tool used by assessment companies, employers and organisations to evaluate applicants' behavioural and cognitive abilities when introduced with hypothetical, daily work-related situations. SJTs do not consist of one uniform format and do not focus on strict criteria, but rather serve as a tailored evaluation tool for a variety of positions and sectors. Therefore, different companies and different roles inside an organisation require different questions and formats. 

Test content

Unlike psychometric personality tests, scenarios presented in SJTs always ask for a resolution of a given conflict which, although being hypothetical, might very much rely on, or represent, realistic situations that occur in a workplace. Conflicts involve supervisor-subordinate relationships, stress and disagreement between work colleagues, etc. The examinee is asked to choose a preferred method of action out of a number of possible options. The situations described may vary according to the role one is applying for. Managers, police officers, administrative workers, customer service representatives, etc. are all likely to receive different scenarios, as they are being evaluated for specific traits and aptitudes.

Our customers' comments on this product:

Practice Numerical Reasoning Tests - Tailored per Company or Position“ I found the feedback facility in your practice SJTs extremely helpful, and I would say that your breakdown of why responses are positive/negative is very effective in helping applicants to understand what is being looked for / what might be ‘behind’ each question.  „

Nilesh, Graduate Scheme, September 2014

Question format

SJTs can take a number of formats, from multiple choice questions with only one correct answer, to most-least answer tables, in which more than one option must be chosen on a certain scale. Nowadays, in many of these tests each scenario is accompanied by a short video scene - performed by professional actors - that simulates the situation.  

Tips and guidelines

When answering SJTs, try to actually imagine yourself at work and answer the questions accordingly. This is quite important since we all act and react differently in or out of the workplace. When answering the situational judgment test you want to bring your "work self" - the logical, reasonable, mature version of yourself.
