Receiving an invitation to complete assessments can be a little nerve-wracking.

We’ve put this page together to help you understand what to expect and how you can make sure you perform at your best.

Who are we?

Revelian is an Australian-owned organisation specialising in the development and delivery of cutting-edge psychometric assessments to give our clients unique, data-driven insight into human behaviour at work.

What are recruitment assessments?

Employers and recruiters use recruitment assessments as a reliable way to objectively assess people’s abilities, or personality, or attitudes, or a combination of these.

They’re designed to provide employers with more information about the people who apply for jobs, so they can get a more complete picture of each candidate they consider.

They also add fairness to the recruitment process by ensuring that every person who applies for a job is considered using the same criteria.

How do I get invited to complete assessments?

Generally speaking, you’ll need to be invited by an employer or recruiter who uses Revelian assessments to assess prospective employees for a position.

However, there are two assessments you can use to test yourself if you would like to. You can find out more and complete both tests here.

How will I know which assessments I need to complete?

When you log in to start your assessments, you’ll see a list of all of the assessments the employer or recruiter has invited you to complete.

You’ll also be able to see approximately how long each one will take, so you can make sure you allow yourself enough time.

How can I prepare for the assessments? Can I study or practice for them?

The absolute best thing you can do before you start your assessments is to make sure you’re feeling well-rested and alert, and ready to give the assessments your best effort.

Before you start each of the assessments, you’ll be given comprehensive instructions and the opportunity to complete some practice questions to familiarise yourself with the process.

In general, Revelian assessments aren’t the kind of tests you can study or practice for. In some cases, there is no right or wrong answer–just your own personal opinions and preferences; in other cases, the assessments are measuring your innate abilities and aptitudes rather than abilities that can be learned.

For this reason, there’s really no way to study for the assessments and it’s best to focus on ensuring you’re comfortable and won’t be disturbed while you complete your tests.
