Situational Judgement Test

Our situational judgement test provides insights on each candidate’s ability to handle the challenges of their role appropriately in the context of your organization.

HighMatch’s Situational Judgement Test

Our situational judgement test is built from the ground up for your organization’s roles and tests candidates on the specific situations you want to have insights for.

Using this assessment, your organization can directly assess relevant job behaviors based on the candidate’s responses. This helps you quickly identify which candidates can handle the challenges of their role and which can’t.

This assessment can be integrated as part of your screening process, used to highlight areas of development for employees, or combined with our other assessments to provide a holistic view of a candidate’s fit for the job.

How Does It Work?

The situational judgement test provides applicants with a work problem or situation specific to your organization and asks them to identify how they would handle it. Because the test is built from scenarios specific to your organization, our situational judgement test provides insights that are directly reflective of how well the candidate can handle the role.  

We start by meeting with your team to identify and understand your organization’s specific challenges and needs. From there, our team of expert workplace psychologists creates a suite of questions that can effectively assess for the insights your organization needs.

Our situational judgement test can be provided on its own or as part of a larger assessment solution such as HighMatch Assess.

Use Situational Judgment Testing When:

  • Job scenarios have dire consequences if handled inappropriately
  • The role requires very specific responses to every day responsibilities
  • Success in the role is based on the candidate’s ability to evaluate and respond to situations correctly

Great for positions in:

Job Previews

Each situational judgement test also acts as a job preview which reduces churn and manages candidate expectations around the role.

  • Job previews are an overview of the role that provide the candidate insights on the day-to-day responsibilities of the position. Our situational judgement tests act as job previews by providing real on-the-job scenarios to candidates.

  • Job previews reduce churn. With a job preview, you significantly lower the chances of employees walking out on day one.

  • Job previews set expectations. A job preview helps candidates inform themselves on the responsibilities of their position so they aren’t caught off guard by the needs of their role.
