We are committed to providing learners with the necessary tools and resources to make informed subject choice and career decisions. Our registered psychometrists conduct professional, scientific assessments that are learner specific. In a drastically changing and dynamic workspace, it is crucial to focus on the learner’s ability, personality, interests, values and career readiness in order to equip them with the best opportunity to be successful and happy. Our focus is always on the learner.

We provide the learner with the opportunity to discuss their thoughts and plans for the future on a one-on-one basis with a professional. We pride ourselves on engaging with the learner, exploring options together and finding solutions that are specific and relevant to their career journey.

Study Habits Assessment: 

Research suggests that ability only accounts for half of variation in marks/grades. Hence, there are other non-intellectual factors that have an impact on performance. Our Study Habits assessment helps identify areas related to study habits and attitudes that are trainable and improvable. The areas measured include propensity to procrastinate, learner’s work methods, teacher attitudes, learner’s confidence and learner’s objectives and goals.

Approximately: 35-40 minutes

Questions: 100 likert-type questions 

Administration: Paper and pencil only

Cost: R500.00 including report and feedback

Our Assessment Toolbox

Aptitude Assessment
The Differential Aptitude Tests (DAT) measure various facets of intellectual functioning. It measures a person’s ability and potential which will enable them to achieve a certain level of functioning if given the appropriate training. Performance on each test is age-appropriate and measured against tests such as vocabulary, verbal and non-verbal reasoning, mathematical ability, spatial reasoning, mechanical insights and memory and comprehension. These abilities provide insight into career fields from an academic, technical and clerical perspective.
Personality Measure
ersonality: The Jung Personality Questionnaire (JPQ) measures a person’s styles and preferences according to Jung’s four dimensions: Extraversion-Introversion, Sensing-Intuition, Thinking-Feeling and Judging-Perceiving. These dimensions give us information about what drives them, how they deal with information, how they make decisions and how they approach every day life. The JPQ taps into the softer aspects, allowing individuals to become more self-aware. This assessment compliments the abilities/aptitude assessment very nicely.
Interest Measure
The South African Vocational Interest Inventory (SAVII) is designed to measure occupational interests by correlating personal and career information. The environment in which the individual works should be congruent with his interests. The results produce a 3-letter code which serves as a guide for the individual in choosing a career path. The occupational fields include practical-realistic, scientific-investigative, social, enterprising, artistic and conventional.
Study Habits
The Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes (SSHA) aims to measure what areas in the individual’s learning can be improved. Propensity to procrastinate, work methods, teacher approval and education acceptance are all explored to identify methods that may be ineffective. Result will inform potential strategies to address these areas of development.
Values Measure
The Values Scale (VS) aims to measure what an individual places importance on, in the workplace or in his/her career. The values scale distinguishes what an individual wishes, wants and needs from a career from what is not important. There are 22 scales measured across six clusters. The clusters include outer-oriented needs, spiritual needs, self-realisation needs, economic independence needs, autonomous lifestyle needs and social-orientated needs.
