The Caliper Profile, most commonly known as the Caliper Test, is a rigid pre-employment exam utilized by thousands of companies to measure how well a candidate’s cognitive skills and personality fit the job role that they are applying for.

Despite not having pass/fail criteria and being untimed, only a small percentage of applicants who take it are invited to the next stage of the hiring process or contacted for an interview. Proper preparation for the Caliper assessment is crucial if you’re serious about getting the job you’re applying for – the pass rate is simply too low to stand a chance if you’re unprepared.

Your Caliper Profile score will be the main determining factor of whether or not you’re going to be considered for the position you’re applying for, so you need to be sure that you’re ready for the test.

Prepterminal’s Caliper Assessment Course will provide you with the tools you need to take on the Caliper with ease by providing a blueprint for how to take on every section of the exam and pass with flying colors. While 90% of applicants fail this exam, you’ll become part of the 10% who breeze through to the next stage of hiring. Sign up today and secure the next big step in your career!

If you achieve a good score on the Caliper assessment, then it’s very likely that the hiring manager will contact you first. 

However, a low or mediocre score will put you on a low-priority list, meaning you’re likely to be skipped altogether or contacted only after every candidate with a better score has been given a chance and passed up on.

In fact, only 10% of all applicants who take the Caliper meet the minimum score set by a company at any given time, and the ones who are invited to the next part of the hiring process are only a small portion of these.

As a result, it is very important that you not only do your best to get all the Caliper test questions right but also have the Caliper personality assessment produce a highly compatible result so that your future employer won’t look anywhere else and pick you as the person to hire.

Let’s take a look at what you can expect from the Caliper and how a Caliper assessment practice test can help you improve.

Caliper Assessment: Course Content

The Contents of the Caliper Assessment

As previously mentioned, there are two ‘sections’ in the Caliper Assessment in order to create your Caliper Profile.

These sections are as follows:

The Caliper Cognitive Assessment

In this section, you will need to answer questions focused on three subjects, though it is more accurate to say that these are only ‘two.’

  • Number Series – Here, you will be presented with a sequence of numbers, and you will need to select which of the choices to fill in the missing spot in the sequence.
  • Matrices/Figural Analogies – Sometimes called ‘spatial reasoning,’ this portion of the assessment is similar to the number series questions, but instead of numbers, you will be presented with shapes or a group of shapes whose sequence, pattern, or relationship you need to discover in order to determine which of the choices is the correct one.

Since the cognitive assessment of the Caliper is primarily focused on measuring your critical thinking or logical reasoning skills, this is where a Caliper practice test comes in handy.

Not only will you get familiar with the question types in the actual exam, but you will also learn the little tips and tricks needed to find the correct answer efficiently.

The Caliper Personality Assessment

This portion of the Caliper Test follows a survey-type format where you will need to select or rate a statement depending on how well it applies or relates to you.

While the actual format may vary, with some companies preferring a Likert-scale response while others prefer a rating-type format, the purpose remains the same: to measure your personality traits and map them on the Caliper Personality Profile.

This profile contains seven major traits, namely:

  • Coaching and Developing Others
  • Deliberate Decision Making
  • Driving Results
  • Business Acumen
  • Composure and Resiliency
  • Negotiating
  • Relationship Building

Depending on your responses to the Caliper personality test questions, the hiring manager will receive a ‘Competency Overview,’ which provides a breakdown of your fit for a job role based on three main components:

  • Critical Competencies: The most crucial components of the candidate’s fit for the job, which are absolutely essential to the position
  • Important Competencies: Components that are important but not completely essential to the position. Candidates who score similarly on critical competencies will then be assessed on important competencies.
  • Supporting Competencies: This category includes competencies that are helpful to the role in a complimentary manner, without being as directly impactful as critical or important competencies.

This overview will include a score showing how well your behavior fits the role that needs to be filled, which will necessitate careful planning and consideration when answering the personality assessment if you want to achieve a high score.

Depending on the job that you want, and even the company that you are applying for, certain traits will weigh heavier than others while the rest will just be a ‘bonus’ or supplementary personality trait to help distinguish you from other applicants.

As a result, there is virtually an unlimited number of ‘optimal Caliper Personality Profiles’ since companies can customize the desired profile based on their specific needs, making it almost imperative that you study well how to answer the behavioral assessment.

The Caliper is a complex screening tool; without preparation, you can very easily become part of the 90% of applicants who aren’t even considered for a job position. Prepterminal’s Caliper Assessment Preparation Course is the premium resource for getting familiar with Caliper’s format and how to take on every step of the process.

    Caliper prep for Management
    This helped me understand what the assessment given by a prospective employer was looking for. Knowing the qualities and strengths needed for my position helped me to answer some questions correctly. This prep does not give you any answers, it puts you in the correct frame of mind to find the best solutions to the types of scenarios you will encounter in your career field. I scored in the high 90’s and was put in a higher position than what I was applying for. This prep was well worth it and I’m very happy with this decision.
