Learning Agility Test FAQs

How much does it cost?

We charge on a per-candidate basis, not on a per-assessment basis. Please visit our pricing page for more information.

When should I use a personality questionnaire?

Any stage of selection. Personality questionnaires can form part of your initial sift or, more commonly, they are one element of a process you have for shortlisted candidates. For example in senior roles it is common to ask shortlisted candidates to complete the questionnaire remotely and then come in for a structured interview.

What levels are these tests designed for?

This is one of the advantages of our adaptive test technology; this questionnaire is suitable for all levels. However, the TPAQ-45 is best suited to high stakes recruitment and the TPAQ-27 is best suited to early stage sifting.

How do you protect candidate date?

We're glad you asked! This is something Test Partnership are quite passionate about and we have implemented privacy by design principles throughout our organisation. We have a whole host of safeguards including: access control; encryption; firewalls; retention policies; and anonymisation. To see all the steps we take please see our GDPR page.
