The Test Battery for Security Guard Selection and Assessment is a computerized psychological assessment package used for evaluating the capacity of high-vigilance personnel to perform consistently and effectively in visually intensive environments.
A security guard is generally a privately and formally employed person who is paid to protect property, assets, or people. Often, security officers act to protect property by maintaining a high visibility presence to deter illegal and inappropriate actions, observing for signs of crime, fire or disorder; then taking action and reporting any incidents to their client and emergency services as appropriate.
Research indicates that, in addition to being patient and passionate about their work, successful security guards must possess such critical characteristics as observation skills (ability to differentiate anomalies) and vigilance (ability to concentrate and consistently pay attention). Our psychometric tests will help your organization select quality personnel leading to turnover reduction, significantly higher performance within the workplace, and improved profitability.
The Test Battery for Security Guard Selection and Assessment allows organizations' staff psychologists to determine the testees' practical and technical (career) interests, vigilance (sub-functions of attention), concentration (perceptual speed and accuracy), stress tolerance (reactive stress tolerance and the related reaction speed), and conscientiousness (the three personality factors – extroversion, emotionality, and adventurousness).
In addition to possessing the ability to perform consistently and effectively in visually intensive environments, security personnel must have perfect eyesight (see models AA86104, AA86105, AA86106 and AA86107) and often be in great physical form (see model AA86109). It is self-implied that security personnel must never consume alcohol before and on the job (see model AA12349). Because security personnel often have access to confidential information many organizations require that they (and job candidates) undergo pre-employment and periodical polygraph examinations (see polygraphs).
The Test Battery for Security Personnel Assessment is an innovative, high-quality, user-friendly product developed by the world market leader in computerized psychological assessment. The use of the computer ensures the highest possible level of objectivity and precision, and enables dimensions to be tested that could not be measured by traditional paper-and-pencil tests. In addition, the scoring of test results is guaranteed to be fast and accurate.
