What you need to know about a situational judgement test.

A situational judgement test is often utilised as part of a recruitment and selection process. This type of assessment is commonly used during recruitment and selection and may also assist with learning and development for existing employees.

When this type of assessment is used as a method of assessment, individuals are presented with a particular scenario that describes a situation that they could find themselves in and asked to say how they would respond to that situation.

Situational judgement tests allow everyone involved in the recruitment, or learning and development process, to gather the information that helps ensure the employment or promotion of people who are well suited to roles.
