What the Prevue Assessments Measure

The Prevue Assessments examine abilities, motivations/interests, and personality with five assessments:


We use three assessments to measure specific abilities. When taken together, they provide a measure of general ability. Here’s how we examine someone’s potential for learning and reasoning:

Occupational Interests

The Prevue Occupational Interests Assessment is designed to evaluate an individual’s likes and dislikes for different types of work. It’s not a measure of performance, but a measure of preference. Interests assessments are especially useful where an applicant doesn’t have prior work experience because they provide some understanding of an applicants interests and potential.

These tests are also used extensively in staff development and coaching situations. Interests assessments provide a means of exploring new options for people, suggesting areas of work that they might not have otherwise considered.

Personality Assessments

The Prevue Personality Assessments examine personality traits that identify someone’s preferred way of acting and thinking. An individual’s personality profile, like their ability profile, is a key influence on how they’ll perform at work. Knowing what to expect from an employee’s behavior is especially important in situations that involve interaction and cooperation with other people, like in managerial, supervisory, customer-oriented, or team-based roles and activities.

The Prevue Personality Assessments are designed to measure how a person fits the behavioral requirements of a particular job –or, if they’re already doing the job, to identify what they need for training and development.

From the candidate’s point of view, personality assessments help them to consider work that best suits their temperament, and what they’ll find more interesting and satisfying. The Prevue Personality Assessment is based on the ‘Big Five’ or ‘Five Factor Model’ of personality, which identifies the primary personality dimensions that underpin all observable behavior.
