What does PXT measure?

PXT measures cognitive ability, behaviour traits and interests as they relate to preferred traits for a given job. Utilising a pre-hire assessment helps to place the right people in the right positions. The PXT Select pre-employment assessment is based on over 20 years of research and rigorous validation, prioritising quality with scientific data.

Cognitive Ability

The ability of an individual to perform the various mental activities most closely associated with learning and problem solving.

Behavioural Traits

Habitual patterns of behaviour, thought and emotion, they provide a foundation for predicting behaviour.


Rates the three most relevant interests as they relate to the Performance Model.

PXT Select is a multiple-choice, online pre-employment assessment that measures the candidate’s cognitive abilities, behaviour traits and interests. To take the assessment, candidates receive an email invitation with a link that directs them to the online Assessment Centre.

PXT Select has a library of hundreds of jobs that can be used to assess the job applicant. This library can also be tailored to suit individual job requirements or mapped to top performing staff which can then be added to your own personal library of positions.

Most candidates set aside an hour to complete the pre-employment assessment, though some people need more time while others require less.

In order to maximise the assessment’s precision with the fewest number of questions, the PXT Select pre-employment assessment uses adaptive testing. This means the system successively selects questions based on what it knows about the candidate from his or her previous responses. From the candidate’s perspective, the difficulty of the exam tailors itself to his or her level of ability. No two candidates will have the exact same assessment experience.

PXT Select provides Interview Questions that are tailored to the candidate based on the individual’s assessment results and the chosen job description for the position, to make the interviewing process more effective. The Interview Questions have been reviewed and tested to help you get the best possible candidate.
