How to make your own aptitude test with process street

Career aptitude tests are powerful tools for both employers and employees alike. They can be used to gain insight into personal tendencies and make informed responses to career and hiring decisions.

Tests like these can differ in:

  • Purpose (i.e. for career placement, selection, counseling, or training)
  • What they measure (i.e. what they are designed to measure, be it personality type, skills, work approaches, values, or vocational interests)
  • What they predict (i.e. performance, quality of work, management potential, career success and satisfaction, your next job)
  • Format (online, paper form, in-person)
  • Standardization and rigor (how subjective or objective are the test results?)

Some tests are highly structured, with definitive quantifiable outcomes; others are more flexible, and designed to be personally interpreted.

This article will look at six different types of aptitude test, broadly defined, and run through the process of how you can build your own aptitude tests using Process Street.

behavioral theory of leadership

I realized I had a challenge… [people] didn’t think they needed to be trained as a leader.

Employee Engagement: How to Get a Happy, Productive Team

Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is the key to having a productive team while also making them happy and motivated.

It’s also often thought to be a load of old rubbish that doesn’t exist.

I’m not about to defend how frequently some bandy about the term, to the point that it loses all meaning. It’s less of a hard factor that can be measured and more a collection of aspects that enhances your team.

However, considering that disengaged employees cost US companies $450-550 billion every year, it’s not something that can be ignored.

That’s why this post will show you what employee engagement is, why it matters, highlight 8 core strategies for how to improve employee engagement, and why communication is so vital.
