Group administered
academic aptitude test
Academic aptitude
tests were initially
developed over 90
years ago to predict
school performance,
but came to be
known as
intelligence tests.
Today, they still do a
good job of
predicting school
performance.
After about age
six, IQ scores tend to
be fairly stable for
the remainder of an
individual’s life.
Prior to age six, and
especially during the
first few years of
life, they tend to be
unstable.

• WHAT IS PERSONALITY??

 No one has arrived yet at a


definitive, universally accepted
definition of personality.

 One definition of personality is


typical and characteristics ways
people behave.

 The efforts to measure


personality have moved into two
directions:
 OBJECTIVE PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT

 The objective approach to


personality assessment relies on
self-report questionnaires that are
economical but suffer from
questionable validity, test taker’s
perception of the social desirability
of answers and faking.
 PROJECTIVE PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT

 Projective tests are more flexible than the


objective personality tests but suffer from
questionable validity and greater expenses.

 Projective personality assessment is


based on the theory that when
individuals are presented with
suggestive and ambiguous stimuli ,
these stimuli will elicit responses that
are fairly rigid and reflective of
conscious or unconscious motives,
beliefs, or wishes.
