What is a Situational Judgement Test?
A Situational Judgement Test or SJT is a type of psychometric test that presents candidates with real-life work situations and then asks them to decide on the best response to that situation.
Typical roles that would use our Graduate SJT are:
- - Graduates
- - Interns
- - Apprentices
Overview of the Test
Our Graduate SJT presents candidates with 20 distinct situations that many graduates, interns and apprentices might find familiar in across a variety of organisations. For each situation, candidates are asked to review four possible responses and select one response they consider ‘most appropriate’ and another as the ‘least appropriate’. As with all our SJTs, it is untimed but it typically takes up to 15 minutes to complete.
Our SJT measures 4 competencies / behaviours:
1. Teamwork: Working with others in order to maximise outcomes
2. Problem Solving: Gathering sufficient information in order to make valid decisions and solve problems
3. Meeting Expectations: Working in a systematic manner in order to achieve performance expectations
4. Professional Integrity: Demonstrating a genuine commitment to company standards and values
