What the ADF Assessment Day Psychological Assessment process includes:

  • a timed General Ability Test
  • a timed Mathematical Ability Test
  • a Psychological Interview
  • an Individual/Group exercise such as delivering a short presentation in front of the other candidates

The aim of psychological assessment is to determine what skills and abilities candidates have and then to match the ADF jobs that require these same sets of skills and abilities.

What to expect in your ADF’s Assessment Day Aptitude Testing process:

  • You will be asked to sit ADF’s aptitude tests online from a room at the recruitment centre.
  • You are not allowed to use a calculator or a dictionary of any kind during any of your aptitude tests.
  • During the test session, you will be provided with pencils, eraser and writing paper.

Why preparation is crucial for your ADF Assessment Day Aptitude Testing:

The outcome of your aptitude testing provides ADF recruiters with a good understanding of your aptitudes, abilities and underlying knowledge. With this information, they can assist you in identifying an occupation for which you are best suited.

Typically, you only have two chances at ADF’s aptitude testing. Failure to reach the thresholds in these tests twice in a row would make it almost impossible for you to have a career with the ADF.

How we prepare you for ADF Assessment Day Aptitude Testing:

The ADF Assessment Day General Ability Test:

This test has 75 test questions and you only have 30 minutes to complete it. This is a very difficult task to complete in such a short time.

This test measures your cognitive ability in three key areas using 3 sub tests:

The ADF's YOU Session Psychological Interview

A major component of your ADF Assessment Day is your Psychological Interview. The interview is designed as a Behavioural Descriptive Interview in which the interviewer checks how  you behaved  in various competency related situations in the past such as at school or with friends. It’s a well structure interview where questions are designed according to skills and competencies required for the ADF . Your response determines how well you fit specific jobs that the ADF has to offer you. It is the approach of BDI which differentiates it from other interview techniques.  Unlike situational interview, where interviewees are given a situation and their ability is analysed based on their response, BDI asks you to narrate a situation or incidences from your past experience which demonstrates a particular skill or ability.

The ADF Assessment Day Individual or Group Exercise 

As part of ADF's Assessment Day you might be asked to participate in an individual or group excercise to allow your assessors to measure your communication, leadership and team work skills. The Individual excercise typically includes a short task that you need to complete on your own. A good example for such a task is asking you to deliver a short presentation in front of the rest of the candidates or in front of the assessor.

In phase 2 of your selection (after successfully passing the ability and mathematical tests and your individual activity), you will be asked to come in for an interview conducted by an ADF psychologist and to undertake a personality test. The personality test is designed to identify personality impediments that will prevent you from successfully performing your role with the ADF.
