By asking a series of questions related to the features of various ability tests, Sirius helps recruiters choose which tests would be the most suitable to administer. The two new latest additions to the portfolio (together known as the Mental Agility Series) measure the following:
- Working Memory – the SWAPS test assesses working memory using a series of image rearrangement questions
- Numerical Ability – the Numerical Operations test assesses numerical ability through a series of mental arithmetic questions
The new ability tests also assess a candidate’s confidence in their own ability, by asking them to assess their certainty of each answer they give as they go through the tests. This, in turn also assesses a candidate’s attitude to risk. These pieces of information are very valuable to recruiters in helping them fully understand their candidates.
Sirius is an innovative online recruitment and selection package that helps recruiting managers identify candidates who are the best possible fit for the job, and ensures that a fair and objective recruitment decision is made. It uniquely combines insights from various tools, including the 16PF personality assessment, to help screen, shortlist, interview and onboard applicants.
