Information for assessment participants

An assessment provides insight into your qualities, potential, and agility. It contributes to making well-considered decisions for your employment, further development and/or career. Below please find some information suggesting how to prepare, some frequently asked questions, and the steps of an assessment centre.

Remote assessment

At this time we strive to conduct all assessments remotely. The programme is identical to that of the on-site assessment at LTP’s offices. You will receive a link to access the assessment via Microsoft Teams.

On-site assessment

In some cases, it is better to conduct the assessment in our offices. If we agreed on an on-site assessment, we kindly ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Coffee and tea will be waiting for you!

The steps of an Assessment Centre

You have been invited to participate in an individual assessment test conducted by LTP. The assessment generally consists of several online personality questionnaires and ability tests, an interview and one or more simulation assignments or games. The content is determined by the client’s specific requirements.

Taking part in an assessment is an intense experience. You have to call on your highest potential during the assessment process. As such, making sure you are well prepared is important. LTP offers you the opportunity to practise with four ability tests that are frequently used in assessments. You can go to the LTP Practice Site where you will find explanations and detailed examples of three tests: the Abstract Matrix Test, Numerical Ability Test and Number Series Test. You can also complete a trial test with a time limit. Go to the LTP Practice Site >

Adequate preparation is especially important for the ability tests. For the other assessment components, the main things are to be well rested and to be who you are during the assessment.

In the invitation e-mail (step 1), you will also find information about completing online tests and questionnaires in advance. You can do this at home or in any quiet place. These questionnaires and tests provide us insight into your intellectual qualities, your personal characteristics, your interests, and (possibly) management qualities and potential derailment risks. The results are used as input for your assessment, so make sure to complete these tests carefully.

It is very important that you complete the tests and questionnaires one day before your assessment at the latest.

The second part of the assessment consists of an interview with one of our psychologists and possibly additional components, such as a simulation assignment or business game.

At this time we strive to conduct all assessments remotely. The programme is identical to that of the on-site assessment at LTP’s offices. You will receive a link to access the assessment via Microsoft Teams.

In some cases, it is better to conduct the assessment in our offices. If we agreed on an on-site assessment, we kindly ask that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment. Coffee and tea will be waiting for you!

As soon as the assessment psychologist has finished writing the report, no later than one week after the assessment, you will receive a link to the secure portal by e-mail. After logging in (with the previously created login details) and a short introduction, you will have access to your assessment report.

If you agree with the recommendations and contents of the assessment report, you can click the ‘Agree to share’ button at the top. If you do not want to share the report, you can also tell us that. In this case, the client and the psychologist involved will be notified.

It is possible to print or save your assessment report. The report will remain available in the portal for five years unless it is deleted at your request.

This step is separate from your assessment, but it is very rewarding. Develop your qualities using your assessment results!

Whether you have completed a selection assessment or a development assessment, it is always a good idea to leverage the results to enhance your personal development. It stimulates your Growth Mindset and you will function more effectively within your team and organisation. Go to Forward Coaching >

All participants in an assessment receive the free LTP feedback app: Persona.fit.

This app is separate from the assessment centre and you are not required to use it, but it does offer many benefits! After downloading Persona.fit, you can get started right away with a short manual. Your assessment results are downloaded automatically to the app. For example, you can ask colleagues to indicate how they see you: which team roles are most dominant and which less so?

After that you can use the app to easily ask for feedback with regard to your competencies and team roles that you want to develop further. All data is stored in the app and only you have access to the data. You keep track of your progress and can discuss it with your manager, coach and/or team.

FAQ – Assessment Centre
