Online Psychometric Testing


APSE Members:  £129 + VAT per test per delegate (including test fee)

If you are keen to discover your personality and behavioural traits, our online service is available giving you an opportunity to take a psychometric test on-line.                                      

The APSE training psychometric testing service, in conjunction with Quintax,* can offer an on-line facility for those who wish to learn more about their personal profile.

Test takers will participate in a confidential assessment that produces a personalised electronic report measuring their responses with detailed interpretation.

Please note there are no right or wrong answers to these tests.

All data protection and confidentiality issues will be strictly adhered to in accordance with APSE’s policy on Psychometric testing


Why use Psychometric tests?

Psychometric tests can be used to enhance the quality and quantity of information available for decisions about recruitment and selection, and in further career development.


Who will benefit?

Anyone who wants to understand more about their personality behaviours strengths, and areas for improvement

Anyone responsible for recruitment, selection and development, who wants to examine how psychometric distance testing can complement this process



The test can be taken at any time to suit you and you will be contacted by APSE to make arrangements to take a test at a time that is convenient. The test will take between 20 – 30 minutes to complete


What’s included?

Administration of test, on-line testing, and electronic personalised reports.  Personal feedback is also included through a confidential telephone line.

The testing arrangements including feedback will be administered by Fiona Sutton-Wilson, Head of APSE Training and Jan Kennedy, APSE Associate Trainer, using Quintax*
