Selecting a Tool

Selecting a Tool

What are psychometric tests and why use them?

Psychometric tests are formal, structured exercises that help to accurately measure cognitive aptitudes, abilities and psychological traits (e.g. reasoning ability, personality dimensions, and work styles). Careful research and testing go into the development of them to ensure that they are reliable and valid; they have proven methodology. And they can produce accurate results for the selection of the right fit candidates, for talent management, for professional development, or for workplace surveys and well-being assessments, among a multitude of uses.

The experts at Y2CP can ensure that the psychometric tests that you would like to use are administered and scored in a standardised way. This allows your results to compared with those of large groups of individuals who have taken the tests in the past (various norm groups). In addition, for the majority of the psychometric tests we sell, an automated report is provided to the client within seconds following the administration. In other words, there is low administrative burden for you.

As part of the range of professional services we offer, we can provide advice and feedback on a wide range of psychometric tests used in human resources, clinical psychology and educational settings. As well, we provide follow-up career counselling and guidance, and coaching services. These coaching, counselling and feedback services can be delivered using virtual environment (videoconferencing), by phone, or by conducting feedback sessions (both group and individual) at our offices or at a location of your choice.

In addition, our organizational assessment surveys are designed to give you a snapshot of the key factors impacting your organization's performance and the quality of your work life/environment, in general.

And if we don't have the psychometric tests you're looking for, we'd be happy to assist you in finding them.

How to select the right psychometric tool?

  • Not sure which psychometric tool or survey you are looking for?

    You can search our databank by category of tool (e.g. selection, leadership/career, team, surveys, and mental health).

    Once in a selected category, you will find a list of tools to choose from. You can click on any tool to access a brief description, language availability, administration time, cost, as well as sample reports that can be generated.

  • Already know which tool/survey you are looking for?

    Simply use the search feature in the psychometric tests and surveys section. Then proceed by clicking on the specific tool/survey to access all relevant information about the tool (a brief description, language availability, administration time, cost, as well as sample reports that can be generated).

How to Purchase a Tool?

How to Purchase a Tool?

How to proceed with a purchase (and what are the conditions and restrictions)?

First, what is your level of qualification in interpreting and using psychometric tools and surveys?

  • Required Qualification — level A

    There are no special qualifications to purchase these products.

  • Required Qualification — level B

    These tests can be purchased by individuals who have taken and passed a licensed qualification program or hold a bachelor's degree or master's degree and have satisfactorily completed a course in the interpretation of psychological assessments and measurement at an accredited college or university.

    To purchase and use B level instruments you first must be qualified.

  • Required Qualification — level C

    Individuals wishing to purchase these tests must have taken and passed a licensed qualification program or hold a bachelor's degree and have satisfactorily completed a course in the interpretation of psychological assessments and measurement at an accredited college or university.

    In addition, they must hold an advanced degree (e.g. Ph.D.) in a profession that provides specialized training in the interpretation of psychological assessments.

    As with B level instruments, to purchase and use C level instruments you must be qualified.

    If you have NO qualifications in interpreting and using psychometric tools and surveys there is a risk that you will be misusing the information obtained — even when using tools that require level A qualification. For example, this could seriously affect important career and life decisions of individuals, produce flawed hiring and talent management results, and throw an entire organization off course.

Caution: You can still purchase any tool as long as you also purchase a feedback results interpretation session. If you rather not purchase a feedback session, then you can only purchase level A tools and you are totally responsible for the accurate interpretation of the results.

Note: If you are competing in a recruitment/selection process, you cannot purchase a selection tool for practice purposes.

Ready to purchase?

First select the type of report you would like to purchase (i.e., selection report, development report, team report) and then click on "purchase now" and it will be added to your shopping cart. If you would like to purchase several reports, simply adjust the number of reports you would like from the default number "1". Please note that you can also opt to purchase online a feedback session (by phone or through videoconference) for each report purchased.

You can also directly contact our client service consultants through our live chat option or by calling our 1.866.574.7744.

Tools & Workshops

Tools & Workshops

Psychometric Tools and Workshops

Looking to have impactful workshops and team retreats that matter?

At Y2CP we believe that the better people understand themselves and others, the better they can build and maintain a positive workplace environment.

Have you thought about including psychometric tests as part of your next workshop or retreat? Tests can be administered to all participants prior to the sessions (at the comfort of their own offices) and individual reports and group feedback is provided to them at the actual events. Individual results remain confidential and only group results are discussed during the day of the "workshop".

By using psychometric tools, you can more effectively:

  • build your team;
  • improve the work climate and the interpersonal dynamics;
  • enhance the well-being, job satisfaction and productivity of your staff; and
  • provide targeted actions to reduce/prevent the sources of stress and distress.

Tests* like the following are just some that you might consider using:

  • Wave Team Report
  • Wave Focus Styles
  • MBTI Team Report
  • Work Personality Index
  • Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI)
  • Firo B
  • Psychological Well-being Inventory

* Simply go to our "Team" section for more details.

Feedback & Coaching

Feedback & Coaching

Psychometrics: Feedback and Follow-up Coaching

The importance of accurately analyzing and interpreting the results of psychometric tools cannot be overstated (and this is particularly true in the case of levels B and C). Not only can the experts at Y2CP help you with data analysis and interpretation, we are available to supply added value by:

  • preparing reports (for participants, organizational management, etc.)
  • giving feedback (a very useful but often undervalued part of psychometric testing)
  • recommending follow-up action (e.g. developmental suggestions for action and learning plans)
  • conducting follow-up coaching with individuals and groups (e.g. follow-up coaching and advice to workshop participants)
  • providing developmental feedback for executives and other individuals looking to improve their performance

And all these services can be conducted in the comfort of your home or office through our videoconferencing services. We can also provide the same services by phone or face to face if you prefer.

Workplace Surveys

Workplace Surveys

We believe that workplace surveys serve a number of useful purposes.

Among other things, not only can they help organizations learn about themselves but they can ascertain employee attitudes and perceptions about workload, job satisfaction, training/development needs and interests, etc. and about levels of occupational health and psychological safety in the work environment. They can find out what is working in the workplace and what isn't. Overall, they provide a clear and comprehensive picture of the thoughts and feelings of employees, and the current state of your organization.

And a confidential or anonymous survey helps ensures that you receive honest and insightful feedback about issues that employees may not wish to discuss directly with their superiors.

Conducting a workplace health survey can also help an organization address or respond to employee concerns with effective workplace strategies and action plans.
