What are Caliper Assessment Tests?

The Caliper Test is used to measure and report on how an applicant's traits relate to job performance. It is not a pass/fail test. The Caliper Profile gathers information about an individual’s natural strengths, motivators, and potential to succeed in a particular role.

The Caliper assessment is available online and in pen and paper formats. This is a multiple-choice exam with 180 questions. While most applicants spend between two to three 3 hours taking the Caliper personality test, there is no actual time limit. It is essential that you answer every question, as the Caliper test cannot be scored if there are any blank spaces on the answer sheet.

Caliper Test Questions

When taking the test, you will be told that there is no right or wrong answer. However, with the thorough question and answer analysis provided at JobTestPrep, you will discover the rationale behind the questions, leading to a clear understanding of the right answers. Prepare with us and make sure that your profile fits the job requirements and company culture.

Caliper Personality Test Format

You can expect to see many items, each containing four statements. Your task in most of these items is to find the one statement that best reflects your perspective. Other questions will require you to choose the statement that least reflects your viewpoint.

The Caliper test also contains true/false questions, along with many items containing five degrees of agreement, from "strongly agree" to "neutral" to "strongly disagree." It is recommended that you try to view the questions from the eyes of the employer.

The key to passing the Caliper Profile test is to understand the actual meaning of each question in the context of the perceived "fit" that the employer is seeking. The purpose of pre-employment personality tests is to find the best match between the applicant and the company through a building a picture of the applicant’s strengths, motivations, limitations, and potential.

Caliper Assessment Results

The Caliper assessment results are also known as the Caliper Profile results. Since the test can be used for hiring, to develop potential in current employees, or to build effective teams within a company, there are different ways to interpret the results.

When using it for hiring purposes, employers use the results to see if the candidate is a good fit for the job. The results also provide interview questions and describe how the candidate is likely to perform.

When using the results to develop employee potential, the results are used to see if the employee's position plays to their strengths or their weaknesses.

When an employer wants to build more effective teams, he or she can view the Caliper Profiles of each member of the team to compare strengths and weaknesses. An employer can also see which employees complement each other.
