Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

We have taken measures to reduce the probability of candidates trying to portray themselves in a socially suitable manner. These include using a semantic differential format for the test, making it difficult for candidates to assume a suitable response. The test provides candidates instructions before answering based on their first instinct and gives ‘instructional warnings’ that their test may be declared invalid if not done honestly. The testing tool can also determine response patterns to discern whether a test taker may be faking their responses. 

Yes. Identifying behaviours for various job roles in the organization can be done. We follow a scientifically validated method for identifying norms suitable for each role. Please write to Mercer | Mettl for assistance.

Yes. We have included a diverse, representative sample during the development phase of the assessment. However, every context might cater to a particular kind of individual, so we also offer options to customize the test content and grading based on the requirements. Please contact Mercer | Mettl for local validation and norms; we will gladly take you through the essential steps.   

Yes. It is possible to map the organization’s competency framework to the assessments. We can build customized evaluations for the organization based on specific needs, which can be used to specify the combination of behaviours necessary for success in the organization. Please write to Mercer | Mettl with the request for solutions. 

The proficiency levels or thresholds are based on the normal probability distribution for specific norm groups.   

The insights obtained from the sample used during the tool's development phase are used to set various behaviour norms. The norms are also reassessed periodically based on the latest data to ensure they stay relevant with time.   

It is essential to understand that human behaviour is a projection of numerous psychological and environmental factors; only using the test reports is not a definitive predictor. They should be consolidated with other sources of information and validated first. Discrepancies in the reports that factually deviate from actual behaviour should be considered in context with any physical, environmental, and psychological factors that may have influenced that behaviour. 

A sales aptitude test is a psychometric testing tool to help recruiters objectively find and hire salesforce with the inherent potential for long-term success.

From the candidate's perspective, sitting for a sales assessment test can be a different experience altogether. Before appearing for the final examination, aspirants should have done ample research beforehand and gathered important information about the interview process.
 From the moment they are being informed about the opportunity, candidates should make necessary preparations proactively. Online resources, such as practice tests, study guides, and test solving tips, are readily accessible nowadays.
 Moreover, aspirants can practice vocabulary, basic math, reading comprehension, and other topics as well. They need to understand what personality traits are required for sales positions. Aspirants must solve as many scenario-based challenges as possible. Most importantly, they should get the requisite 7-8 hours of sleep before the test.
