Assessment/Development Centre Tests and Exercises


Measure your competencies at a deeper level
Measure your competencies
at a deeper level

During the Assessment/Development Centre, you will be going through a variety of exercises so we can measure your competencies in various situations. While observing your behaviour, we can come to a balanced evaluation based on the entire day.

Below is an overview of the types of exercises you may expect on your Assessment/ Development day. Not every Assessment/ Development Centre consists of these exercises, but often a number of these are used.

  • Aptitude tests: Numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning tests, which give an indication of the intellectual potential of a candidate.
    To experience the aptitude tests, you can take some example exercises here:
  • Personality questionnaire: a list of questions on your personality and/or motivational drivers. In order to familiarize with our personality questionnaire, you can find an example questionnaire below: 
  • Simulation exercises
    • In-tray exercise: individual written exercise in which you will be asked to solve problems and make decisions, based on a number of letters and memos.
    • Interactive exercises or role plays:
      • Analysis and Presentation exercise: here it is observed how you analyse various data from a file and defend your conclusions towards a superior.
      • Management exercise: simulation of a face-to-face discussion with another role player.
      • Commercial exercise: you receive a file which contains info on a commercial problem. You examine the matter and try to develop a successful approach.
    • Group exercise: here we look at how you interact with other participants during a group discussion.
  • Competency Based Interview: a structured, in-depth interview to gather relevant information on specific competencies by means of specific situations or examples.

Apart from the information which can be found on our website, Hudson can give no other advice or support because this would create a conflict of interest and could compromise the confidentiality and ‘equality of chance’ principle.
