The term ‘psychometric’ is a general one and covers ability tests as well as questionnaires on personality and personal style. Tests of ability are considered measures of maximum performance and are designed to measure what a student is “capable of knowing” as opposed to attainment tests which measures what a student knows relative to a curriculum. The most commonly used ability tests are those measuring numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning.
Each person is born with a unique set of natural talents/abilities which enables them to perform certain tasks easily. It is important to discover these inborn talents by using an objective assessment tool.
