Managerial Personal Style Assessment III Test

This combines our Managerial Style II Assessment with a Career Development report which can be used for coaching the employee or discussing their professional growth with them.

Pre-Employment Test

Purpose: This is a comprehensive pre-employment management test to find candidates with the mental acuity to learn quickly, handle a large information load, and make decisions based on complex information. In addition, this personality and aptitude test for managers helps identify candidates’ management styles to determine if they have the leadership qualities necessary to direct and motivate employees, make decisions efficiently and in an ethical manner, focus on productivity indices, and work hard. It also functions as a leadership assessment and provides a career development component.

This product is ONE test that gives you TWO reports:  (1) an evaluative report for the hiring manager and (2) a career development report suitable for the job candidate or new hire.

About the Test: This test is untimed and should take approximately 60-75 minutes to complete. It consists of 3 parts:

  • A personality assessment
  • A test of general cognitive aptitude (equally divided among verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning)
  • Open-ended statements to which the candidate must type in short answers.

Contrast with Managerial Personal Style Assessment I and Managerial Personal Style Assessment II: This test provides both an evaluative report for the hiring manager, plus a career development report that you can share with the candidate. The career development report can be used for personal growth or for coaching purposes.

What the Evaluative Report Gives You:  A graphical display of scores and areas covered (see chart), explanation of aptitude results, list of strengths and developmental concerns, display of the narrative comments given to the open-ended statements, and suggested interview questions.

What the Career Development Report Gives You: For each personality dimension, the report provides a graphical display of the score, a narrative explanation of the score, along with narrative interpretation of strengths, weaknesses, best job fit, worst job fit, and suggestions for development.

Testing Process: Online personality testing provides immediate reporting. Proctoring is desirable but not required.

Options: Contact us to learn how we can customize the test content for your hiring process or the way information is presented in the report to meet your specifications.
