About Talent Q

Talent Q is becoming an increasingly popular assessment company and part of the Korn Ferry Hay Group. Its tests are used by the likes of Astra Zeneca, BT, Carlsberg, Citi, RBS, Royal Mail, Volkswagen, and many others.

This page outlines how JobTestPrep can help you prepare for Talent Q's Elements ability tests, the psychometric test series used for selection and talent management.

Talent Q's ability tests differ from other common psychometric tests with regard to concepts, test formats, and question types. One of the main differences is that the tests are adaptable. This means that depending on whether your response to a question is correct or incorrect the system presents you with a subsequent question of either greater or lesser difficulty until your appropriate difficulty level is found. This ability and performance-based testing method allows for tests to be relatively shorter (a maximum of 16 minutes per Element), as candidates only answer questions adjusted to their ability level.

The fact that these tests are adaptable does not reflect on candidates in any way. They are still expected to answer all the questions correctly. This method only gives Talent Q a way to shorten the assessment process. It is highly recommended to practise for these tests as it will help you gain familiarity with the test, its structure, and the best strategies for completing it successfully.


Groups of Assessments

There are a number of different groups of assessments. They are outlined below:


Talent Q Dimensions

In its 25-minute time frame, the Dimensions online personality questionnaire is able to accurately measure an applicants’s personality across several different fields. These different fields are People and Relationships, Tasks and Projects, and Drives and Emotions.

You are given a statement, such as 'How true is each statement below in relation to your behaviour at work?' You are then given four different statements that you must rate on a five-option, true-based scale. There are 160 of these statements, all relating to different behavioural trends.
