The term psychometric originates from two Greek words; ‘Psycho’ comes from the word ‘psyche’ which means ‘breath, spirit, soul, mind’ and ‘metry’ comes from the word ‘metria’, which means ‘to measure’. Psychometric assessments are standardized tools that are used to objectively measure abilities, knowledge, personality, motivations, and skills. They help understand individuals and are useful in hypothesizing behaviors and ultimately, their future performance in the workplace or their suitability for a job/career.
At Kamyabi Solutions, our assessments are in the form of ability/aptitude assessment, personality assessment, motivation assessment, skills assessment, and situational judgement assessments.
The Kamyabi (Kabliyat, Zehniyat, Salahiyat) assessment measures cognitive and mental performances such as verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning, and abstract reasoning.
The Kamyabi Pehchaan index is used to identify an individual’s characteristics/style and personality traits.
The Kamyabi Maqsad/Tehreek assessment identifies an individual’s drive or preferences of a work situation.
These assessments measure an individual’s ability/performance in key areas such as communication, IT, mechanical and other technical skills.
These assessments test an individual’s judgement and problem-solving or decision-making skills through their responses on various workplace scenarios.
More and more companies are investing in psychometric assessments in selection and recruitment and in training and engaging existing employees. Psychometric assessments improve the selection and recruitment process in the following ways:
1️⃣ By matching individuals to the job based on their ability, knowledge, personality, career aspirations, and skills. Psychometric assessments, therefore, help identify an individual’s suitability for a job/career
2️⃣ By making the recruiting process objective and therefore, more credible. Interviews often only provide a glimpse of a candidate’s potential and resumes/CVs may over- or under- represent candidates whereas, standardized assessments are fair and accurate in their measurement.
3️⃣ By reducing interviewer bias. The objectivity of standardized assessments can help reduce interviewer bias.
4️⃣ Allow employers to tap onto a larger talent pool. Psychometric assessments can be taken remotely and therefore, provide access to a much larger talent pool than ever before.
5️⃣ By reducing costs of recruitment. Psychometric assessments are quick and easy to administer and can save time and money. Moreover, since psychometric assessments help identify employee suitability using a variety of tools, they reduce the costs associated with unsuccessful hiring decisions.
