An aptitude test is a systematic means of testing a job candidate's abilities to perform specific tasks and react to a range of different situations.
The tests each have a standardised method of administration and scoring. The results are quantified and compared with all other test takers. No prior knowledge is needed, as the tests measure innate ability at a particular competency.
Aptitude tests are usually administered online – most often after a candidate has made their initial job application – and are used to filter unsuitable applicants out of the selection process, without the need for time-consuming one-to-one job interviews. Employers use aptitude tests from a variety of providers – such as SHL, Talent Q and Cubiks – alongside general interview advice, application forms, assessment centres, academic results and other selection methods.
