Assessment Participation Information

Congratulations!

If you are scheduled for an assessment, that means someone sees potential in you and wants to learn more about your skills, values, abilities and personal attributes. Whether you are a candidate for hire or promotion, a developing leader or an individual seeking career growth, an assessment will provide invaluable professional insights.

What to Expect

The Process

HMM is a partnership of Consulting Business Psychologists who specialize in employment selection and management development. The assessment process is three steps. The first step is the pre-work. You will receive an email from HMM that will include four untimed opinion questionnaires to complete in advance of your appointment (approximately 1½ hours). The second step is the interview with the business psychologist (approximately 1 to 1½ hours). The third step is some timed, problem-solving tests (approximately 1 to 1½ hours). You should expect to be in our office for a total of 2 to 2½ hours.

Timed Tests: The results of the timed tests allow candidates to be considered on the same basis. They may include verbal analogies, high school level arithmetic, number series reasoning, and spatial relations. You will work with a trained test administrator who will provide you instructions prior to taking each test including practice examples and test-taking strategies.

Untimed Tests: The opinion questionnaires provide insight into your style of working with others and your leadership characteristics. The interview and paperwork were designed in accordance with the professional standards of the field of Industrial and Organizational Psychology. They are well-established measures of various work style characteristics.

You are not expected to prepare for the paperwork. However, before the testing session, a review of basic arithmetic functions, including fractions, decimals, and percentages, may prove beneficial. Taking some practice tests involving basic mathematics and problem-solving will provide opportunities to take tests under various timed conditions. The following are helpful resources:

  • Math – Immergut, B., & Smith, J.B. (Second Edition 2005). Arithmetic and Algebra Again. (Chapters 1 through 6). New York: McGraw-Hill Companies
  • Assessment and Aptitude Test Training – www.fibonicci.com
  • Strategies and Preparation – Kesselman-Turkel, J. & Peterson, F. (1981). Test-Taking Strategies. Chicago, IL: NTC/Contemporary Publishing Group, Inc.

The Testing Session

  • The test administrator will provide directions. If you are unclear, ask any questions you may have before beginning each of the timed tests.
  • For the timed portions, keep track of your time and pace yourself. Strong performance requires a balance of both speed and accuracy. Work as quickly and yet as carefully as you can.
  • If you are unsure of the correct answer, be aware of any penalties for incorrect guesses. If you can eliminate some of the choices by determining that they are clearly incorrect, you might consider making your best guess from among the remaining alternatives.

The Interview

During the interview, you will be asked to discuss your background and experience. The conversation will cover a chronology of school and work. You will also be asked to describe yourself and how you work with others. We encourage you to be frank and candid in your responses.

Be prepared to talk about your:

  • Education. Questions may include favorite subject matter, degrees earned, GPA, etc.
  • Employment history, including jobs held, promotions, salary history, dates, reasons for changing employers, etc.
  • Likes and dislikes about your work.
  • Approach to problem-solving.
  • Work habits.
  • Interpersonal and leadership style.
  • Accomplishments.
  • Strengths and weaknesses.
  • Career goals and aspirations.
