Assessment Center Exercises

Our most popular service is the Assessment Center, often referred to as the “gold standard” of promotional testing. Candidates experience four or five job simulations custom built to fit the position and the organization. These are built on the powerful foundation of a local job task analysis, eight leadership dimensions based in national research, and a preparation workshop for candidates. The organization chooses job simulations from the broad categories of Oral Presentations, Interactive Role-Playing Scenarios, Critical Thinking & Decision Making, Tactical and Writing Exercises.

On test day, PST delivers a “turn-key operation”; providing all the materials and doing the scoring on-site. At the end of the day, your leaders participate in a briefing with the assessors and receive a rank ordered list of candidates. All the documents created for the project and the assessors’ subjective comments about the candidates are provided shortly after the test so each candidate also receives personal feedback.
