So that a potential employee has the opportunity to review the terms and conditions to see if it is acceptable to them and/or to compare the terms to their current position. Setting out terms and conditions means that all parties understand their rights. 17. Explain the purpose and relevance of psychometric tests in recruitment. Psychometric tests are instruments that tell us about individual diferences: such as personal characteristics or cognitive ability (intelligence), compared to other people. Psychometric tests have wide applicability. The research underlying the psychometric tests can help us to draw conclusions about what this is likely to mean in the workplace. Performance on a cognitive ability test can reveal whether a person is suitable for a complex job or a job requiring a high level of attention to detail, for instance and performance on a personality measure can reveal whether a person is suitable for a job requiring high levels of sociability or teamwork and how they are likely to react in an emergency. 18. Explain the purpose and relevance of skills tests in recruitment. Skills tests tell us about whether a person can perform a certain set of tasks, and how well. Skills tests have a relatively narrow applicability. They can show whether the candidate has a basic, moderate or high level of skill on a certain test that is needed for the job.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
