In this situation-based assessment, the applicant’s situation is a study in itself. The test begins when the candidate is asked to complete a document that contains a list of their current responsibilities. It then goes on to describe the types of work situations they typically encounter, including work tasks, meetings, customer calls, travel, etc. After completing the document, the candidate will then be required to complete a questionnaire where they will have to indicate how much time they spent in each type of situation, how much stress they experienced, what kind of relationships were formed, what kind of compromises were made, what kind of arguments were raised, etc.
Another scenario-based assessment, the “I’d like to be on time” assessment asks an individual to complete a document that consists of a series of questions that are all designed to determine how they perceive their current ability to be on time for meetings. The document will ask the person to list the most important factors they consider when being late, how they feel about their past errors and if they feel that being on time means a lot to them.
In the third assessment, the “I’d like to take responsibility” assessment, an individual will be asked to identify the type of behaviors they are likely to exhibit in response to various situations. For example, some scenarios will include things such as “I don’t like to make errors,” “I am very patient”I am not likely to criticize or hold myself responsible for my mistakes.” The assessment will then ask the individual to identify what behaviors they are likely to exhibit when they are faced with a certain situation and ask if they think those behaviors are appropriate.
In the fourth assessment, the “I’d like to make friends” assessment, the individual will have to complete a document in which they must answer questions about how they perceive their current social skills. They will then answer questions about the types of situations they find to be most stressful, if they are likely to talk negatively about certain situations and if they tend to avoid group activities.
In the fifth assessment, the “I’d like to make friends” assessment, the individual will be asked to identify the kinds of people that are the most influential in their life. they will then have to answer questions about who they have had friendships with in the past and what is the most influential person in their life at the moment. The individual will then answer questions that describe the types of relationships they are most satisfied with and the kind of relationship they enjoy with their peers.
In the sixth assessment, the “I’d like to make money” assessment, the individual will be asked to complete a survey in which they will answer questions about the amount of money they earn and if they feel that they are a good negotiator. They will then answer questions about their financial situation and if they are currently able to obtain the income they desire.
When it comes to the last scenario-based assessment, the “I’d like to lead others” assessment, the individual will have to complete a series of questions about how they feel about leadership roles within a team, their ability to communicate effectively with people, their ability to listen and their ability to motivate people. They will then be asked questions that describe a situation in which they will need to lead and a few questions about what they would do if the situation were different. It is important to realize that the individual can change their responses during the assessment. However, the assessment is designed to get an individual to understand their unique personality characteristics and the types of situations they are most likely to engage in when faced with a certain type of situation.
