Game Based Assessments- What to Expect & How to Pass

What Are Game-Based Assessments?

Game-based assessments are a form of pre-employment psychometric tests, only these tests are interactive and seem like harmless games. But make no mistake- these games are intended to engage rather than entertain. The way you solve game-based assessments indicates varied cognitive and interpersonal capabilities, that are measured for the position you applied for.

 

Game-Based Assessment Example- The Balloon Game

Arctic Shores Balloon Game Example

About this game: you can find the Balloon game in both the Pymetrics and Arctic Shores game assessments. In this game, you have to pump the balloon and choose when to exchange it with money, so that you earn as much money as possible. Each pump increases the amount of money, but can also potentially burst the balloon, losing the money accumulated so far.  

The challenge here is choosing the best exchange timing, without bursting the balloon. So, even though it seems simple- this task requires learning and recognizing different explosion patterns, to take calculated risks and maximize your earnings.
