Psychometric Test Library
Below is a list of the psychometric/ psychological assessments that I use, with a brief description.
Cognitive/ Intellectual Assessments:
Junior South African Individual Scale (JSAIS)
The JSAIS is the standardised IQ assessment for children. Children can be assessed from as young as 3 years of age. The JSAIS offers core subtests which provides a general IQ as well as more specific forms of intelligence. The supplementary tests can evaluate if improvement has been seen during the coaching process.
Senior South African Intelligence Scale - Revised (SSAIS-R)
The SSAIS-R is the South African IQ assessment that compares an individual's performance to other South African of the same age. This assessment can be administered to children from the age of 7 to 16 years.
Wechsler Intelligence Test for Children version 5 (WISC-V)
The WISC V is the international IQ assessment for children. This is a more advanced assessment and would be administered to children in Model C schools and high achievers.
Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale version 4 (WAIS-IV)
The WAIS-IV is the international IQ assessment for adults.
Wechsler Individual Achievement Test (WIAT-II)
The WIAT-II is the international achievement test. Achievement refers to our basic scholastic skills such as; reading, writing, mathematics, oral language and written expressive abilities.
Beery Test of Visual-Motor Integration
The Beery evaluates visual-motor integration, visual perception and motor coordination. These skills are essential with reading, writing and identifying mathematical concepts.
Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The MBTI is used around the world and is considered to be one of the most useful assessments in terms of career guidance, personal development and work-place coaching. It took 40 years of research to develop this measure, making it very useful and accurate.
The 16PF assesses personality according to 16 personality factors. Combining this information with the results of the MBTI can be very powerful in creating the necessary self-awareness required for personal growth.
Jung Personality Questionnaire (JPQ)
The JPQ is an interest questionnaire that has been adapted from the MBTI specifically for career guidance.
Career/ Interest Assessments:
Differential Aptitude Test Form L (DAT-L)
The DAT-L is an aptitude test that assesses our strengths and weaknesses in specific career fields.
19 Field Inventory (19FII)
The 19FII represents a career field interest questionnaire used for career guidance.
South African Vocational Interest Inventory (SAVII)
The SAVII acts as another interest questionnaire in career guidance to draw correlations with the 19FII and JPQ to establish career interests.
