Selection and Development with Tests

Language of lecture: 
Length of the training: 
2 days
The training is also available in 
English languages.

Our two-day long, practical training allows you to master the techniques of effective recruitment and development through personal experience.

You will learn how to:

  • Use our personality, competence and motivation questionnaires
  • Use our psychological and ability tests
  • Analyse and evaluate test results
  • Give competency-based, consistent  evaluation

SHL Hungary uniquely provides a textbook related to the subject of the training, so it does not have to be purchased separately. The hundreds of pages of serious and internationally recognized auxiliary material will always be at your disposal after our professional training.

Training starts with a minimum of 4 participants, according to the agreed time and place.

Our registration number in the Adult Education Data Service System is B/2020/006665.
We act in accordance with the Adult Education Act in all respects.


For whom? 

We recommend this course to HR professionals who intend to solve selection and development-related tasks individually within their company, and plan to use SHL tools as an organic part of the organisation’s HR system on a long run.


The curriculum is highly multifaceted. In the introduction, we talk about the history of testing, the nature vs. nurture question, and different types of psychological tests (specifically those used in the workplace).  We continue with why we use tests in selection and training, how to avoid errors in selection, and what is reliability and validity. (These statistical notions help in understanding certain connections.) Participants will get acquainted to ability tests (verbal and numerical reasoning test, technical test, and clerical test) and personality questionnaires from the Workplace Behaviour Test Package. Furthermore, they will have the opportunity to get to know questionnaires measuring motivation, preferences, and workstyle.


Administering and evaluating tests, and giving feedback on the results, is something one has to learn, but it is not a typical theoretical learning material. In order to have personal experience about them, every participant will complete tests, and then they will evaluate and interpret their own results, with our help of course. We will present SHL’s computer generated expert system that offers valuable assistance for the user in evaluating the results of personality questionnaires. Participants will practice individually one of the most important parts of the process, i.e. giving feedback.

Naturally, we count on active cooperation of the participants also while picking up theoretical knowledge. And there will be discussions about all topics and even debate over questions of biggest interest. We will show AC/DC exercises (there is a different course where you can learn how to use these) and SHL’s Job Analysis System (there is also a different course about this). And finally there will be an opportunity to learn about tools developed outside of SHL: the Raven Progressive Matrices, and its verbal counterpart, the Mill Hill Vocabulary Scale. Participants, who successfully complete the course, will be awarded with an international certificate that will qualify them for the worldwide use of SHL tests.
