Our practice tests do not attempt to replicate the exact assessments you may be asked to complete. Nor do they necessarily reflect the difficulty of actual test questions. Instead, they are intended to give you a near-similar test experience for an OPRA cognitive ability and personality assessment.
Why do employers use assessment tests?
Some employers include assessment testing as part of the selection process to make a better, more informed decision about a candidate. There is a range of questions that an assessment test can help answer such as; can this candidate do the job, will they do the job, and will they fit our team and culture?
Well designed, an assessment test can:
- Help predict future potential, and likely on-the-job performance
- Confirm a candidate’s ability to handle various job-related activities such as working in a team, leading others, coping with pressure, and adhering to rules
- Sift out unsuitable candidates at an early stage in the recruitment process and reduce recruitment costs
- Measure job specific skills that are not easily assessed by other methods.
