Situational Judgment Tests

Podium's Situational Judgment Tests (SJTs) present scenarios based on real world workplace occurrences. Participants are presented with action options which they would choose or rate as most appropriate or effective in the presented situation.

Results are therefore related to the good judgement and good decision making capabilities of the test taker. When the scenarios presented are chosen for their relevance to the client or user organisation they become an effective behavioural assessment and can be highly effective in evaluating relevant leadership competencies.
