What is a Situational Judgement Test?

Situational Judgement Tests (aka SJTs) give recruiters an easy way to see how candidates will behave in their role.

When taking a Situational Judgement Test respondents will be presented several hypothetical workplace scenarios, candidates will then be asked to give the most appropriate response to the situation at hand.

Situational Judgement Tests have high face validity and excellent candidate engagement, meaning they are great for indicating fit with a role, and future job performance.

SJTs give recruiters insight into a candidate’s decision making style and approach, whilst simultaneously providing them with a more realistic job preview.
