The Townsend Ability Battery (TAB) covers a full range of ability tests that are typically used to support the recruitment and development processes in organisations. These tests are devised with the aim of providing employers with a reliable method of selecting the most suitable job applicants or candidates as well as for personal development or promotion. While personality questionnaires like the TPQ and TEQ-i seek to measure aspects of personality, these aptitude and ability tests aim to measure intellectual and reasoning abilities helping organisations find the best match of individual to occupation and working environment. As a recruitment and selection tool, these tests can be applied in a straightforward way at the early stages of selection to supplement the process of screening-out candidates who are likely to be unsuitable for the job. Because ability tests and other behavioural assessments are carefully monitored for ethical and contextual use by institutions like the Healthcare Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) and specifically by the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA) when used for hiring and selection processes, all the Skillworx TAB tests are strictly supervised. While fully automated, they are administered in person and moderated in real-time using a state-of-the-art administration dashboard.
