Psychometric Testing


Intelligence Testing
Intelligence involves the ability to think, solve problems, analyze situations, and understand social values, customs, and norms. Two main forms of intelligence are involved in most intelligence assessments: i. Verbal Intelligence is the ability to comprehend and solve language-based problems; and ii. Nonverbal Intelligence is the ability to understand and solve visual and spatial problems. Intelligence is sometimes referred to as intelligence quotient (IQ), cognitive functioning, intellectual ability, aptitude, thinking skills and general ability.Intelligence testing is the estimation of a person's current intellectual functioning through performance of various tasks designed to assess different types of reasoning. IQ is typically measured by standardized testing with norm-referenced tests.

Personality Testing
A personality test is a questionnaire or other standardised instrument designed to reveal aspects of an individual's character or psychological makeup.There are many different types of personality tests. The most common type, the self-report inventory, involves the administration of many questions, or "items", to test-takers who respond by rating the degree to which each item reflects their behaviour. There are also many other methods for assessing personality, including observational measures, and projective tests.

Aptitude Testing
Aptitude and ability tests are designed to assess your logical reasoning or thinking performance. They consist of multiple choice questions and are administered under exam conditions. It is an exam used to determine an individual's propensity to succeed in a given activity. Aptitude tests assume that individuals have inherent strengths and weaknesses, and are naturally inclined toward success or failure in certain areas based on their inherent characteristics. Individuals might take an aptitude test to determine what kinds of careers they are well suited for. Similarly, high school students might take an aptitude test when thinking about what would be an appropriate college major or whether college is the best choice for them.

Educational Testing

Psycho-educational evaluation is defined as a set of assessment procedures administered and interpreted to obtain information about the child’s development, learning, memory, academics, behavior and mental health. Different assessment procedures, or combination of procedures, are used, depending upon the referral questions, presenting problems and the past tests administered with careful consideration of cultural differences and possible impairments in speech/language, hearing, vision and motor development.

Clinical Tests
A psychiatric assessment, or psychological screening, is a process of gathering information about a person’s mental health assessment to diagnose and treat clients. This highly detailed assessment helps professionals to carefully plan one or several treatment options, and can include a variety of medical, physical, or behavioral evaluations. The assessment typically remains open-ended as treatment progresses — diagnosis and treatment can change often based on the client’s response. It is usually the first stage of a treatment process, but it may also be used for various legal purposes.These tests include a battery of tests and many include ones for depression, anxiety, phobias, neuropsychological and other types of psychological problems.
