Psychometrics: The good, The bad and The ugly

Virtual Event


The word ‘psychometric’ means ‘measurement of the mind’ and there are a wide range of tools available that range from brand new to many decades old, which claim to find the perfect hire for a role. These tests can assess a range of personal qualities: personality, motivation, reasoning skills and even people’s values-set. Ben Williams is a seasoned Chartered Psychologist and former Chair of the Association for Business Psychology who has used just about every test on the market over the past 23 years. He now runs Sten10, who focus on designing bespoke tests of this nature. 

Come along to this session and learn:

  • How can you tell a ‘good test’ from a ‘bad test’?
  • What questions should you be asking a test publisher (and how you can understand the answers!)
  • How do you know whether a test is right for your intended purpose?
  • What evidence is there behind some of the new development in psychometrics, such as AI or game-based assessments?
  • Why might you decide to develop your own test?
