Psychometrics is that part of psychology which is concerned with the measurement and interpretation of psychological variables such as aptitude for different kinds of jobs. A psychometric instrument is designed to produce a quantitative assessment of one or more psychological attributes like reasoning ability, interests, aptitude, temperament, etc. The tools help employers understand how the candidate would behave, relate to others, approach and solve problems. Basically, psychometric tools evaluate the individual’s behaviour through questionnaires. The results are mapped on a graph, which analyses this pattern and accordingly profiles it with the company’s work culture.

Dear Bindu,

A psychometric test is a way of assessing a person’s ability or personality in a measured and structured way. There are 3 main types of tests: ability, personality and interest (although both personality and interest are more like psychometric questionnaires). Some tests are used by employers to help them in their recruitment process while other tests can help people with career decision making.
