The Advanced Problem Solving Tests in the Supra Series are a very high level of ability tests suitable for assessing senior executives, managers and professionals, as well as exceptional graduates of very high potential.
This battery consists of:
Verbal Critical Reasoning Test - the ability to identify logic or the lack of it in verbal data and avoid making assumptions/jumping to conclusions.
Numerical Critical Reasoning Test - the ability to manipulate and integrate numerical, financial and graphical data.
Creative Problem Solving Test - a measure of the ability to consider problems; come up with many ideas; think laterally and generate original ideas.
With rapid administration times, the Prima Series critical reasoning tests are effective screening tools for both managers and graduates.
This battery consists of:
Short Verbal Test - the ability to understand and work logically with written data, avoiding unwarranted assumptions.
Short Numerical Test - the ability to deal with work-related numerical, financial and graphical data.
MAPP is an integrated questionnaire assessing nineteen personality traits and fourteen areas of values/motivation that are relevant to managerial and professional roles.
The questionnaire provides insights into interpersonal style, approach to tasks, emotional resilience, fit with job content and organisational culture, as well as predictions of leadership style, team behaviours and management competencies.
The MAPP scales have a median reliability coefficient of 0.82, and validity studies have shown it to be a valid predictor of job performance, absenteeism and employee turnover.
MAPP is available on online with a typical completion time of 45-50 minutes (it is two questionnaires in one). A shorter version MAPP-8 is also offered for rapid screening with a typical administration time of 20-25 minutes.
Also available in Arabic, Dutch, French, German, Russian, Spanish and US English.
MAPP-EI assesses a sub-set of emotional traits that mediate other aspects of personality and behaviour at work. These traits are therefore not separate from personality but incremental in so far as they explore how emotions impact upon one’s own behaviour and upon other people.
These traits are clustered into self-awareness, self-management, self-direction, awareness of others and relationships with others.
KCP’s Simulation Activity Series has been designed for use in assessment, development and
Drawing on over 40 years’ experience in both the public and private sectors, all our activities
are based around modern, realistic scenarios that provide participants with the opportunity to
demonstrate samples of their typical behaviour and skills at work.
Group Activities - research consistently demonstrates that group activities are strong predictors of work behaviour, particularly in relation to interpersonal characteristics such as leadership, influencing style and team awareness. For this reason, all our activities major on interpersonal rather than cognitive assessment criteria, although some are capable of exploring business awareness, problem solving or innovation.
E-Tray Activities - these are best used to explore cognitive competences such as planning, strategic and operational awareness, problem solving and decision making. We recommend that wherever possible, assessors interview participants after the exercise to obtain a richer understanding of the thought processes that informed responses.
