General description

Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) are standardised psychological tests presenting candidates with a range of different situations that they might experience at work. For each situation, a number of possible actions are offered. The candidate must determine the efficiency of each action in relation to the respective situation. SJTs provide insights into a candidate's judgement, decision making process, and management abilities.

The popularity of SJTs

A report highlights that up to 73% of large organizations (over 5,000 employees) use situational judgement questionnaires.

Yes, it is. However, instant feedback reports will not be available if you choose this option, as enough people from your group need to be tested to develop comparative norms before being able to provide any results (a minimum of 100 employees is strongly recommended).
