Situational judgement tests

Over the last few days I’ve been asked if there’s anything on the web that can help someone prepare for a Situational Judgement Test (SJT). For the uninitiated an SJT is a type of psychometric test that presents the test-taker with scenario-based problems; then for each problem various actions are provided and the idea is to pick the one you think is the best – this is the judgement bit. SJTs are sometimes called ‘Management Competence Tests’.

SJTs are used by a number of large organisations and are a particular favourite of the UK and EU Civil Services. So here’s some practice material from the European Personnel Selection Office (EPSO) and the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD).

Update (December 2010): I’ve added some more links on the Practice Psychometric Tests page of my website. You might also like to read, Do Situational Judgement Tests Work?
