  • 10. 

    Which assessment tool is NOT efficient in measuring Competence?

    • A.

      Résumé

    • B.

      Aptitude Tests

    • C.

      Personality Tests

    • D.

      STJs

    Correct Answer
    C. Personality Tests
    Explanation
    Personality tests are not efficient in measuring competence because they primarily focus on evaluating an individual's personality traits, preferences, and behaviors, rather than directly assessing their skills, knowledge, and abilities related to a specific job or task. Competence is typically determined by evaluating an individual's performance, experience, qualifications, and demonstrated skills, which are better measured through other assessment tools such as résumés, aptitude tests, or structured job interviews (STJs). Therefore, personality tests may not provide a comprehensive or accurate evaluation of an individual's competence in a specific area.
