On this page, you will find all the information and documents you need to prepare for an assessment at In Good Company.

What does an assessment day look like?
In the video below, we show what an assessment day roughly looks like. An assessment always consists of several parts. Some of it, such as the personality questionnaire, you have already made in your preparation. You often make a capacity test on the day itself, you do one or more role-plays, and you have an interview with one of our assessors. In the case of a full assessment day, you can enjoy lunch with us. After about a week, you will receive a final report. Watch the video below before you come to us for an assessment, so that you know what to expect on your assessment day.
Preparing for the interview
During the interview, all the results of the assessment will be discussed with you. You receive feedback and together with you, the assessor tries to map out exactly where your talents, pitfalls, and challenges lie. To understand this properly, we use the core quadrant. In your preparation, you can already think about your core quadrant. Watch the video below for a detailed explanation of the model:
This questionnaire has no right or wrong answers. It's about your personal preferences. The results will be discussed with you during the interview. A few important pointers for a smooth completion:
You must complete the questionnaire alone and in a quiet room; The questionnaire is preceded by extensive instructions. The better you read these instructions, the more reliable the result of the questionnaire are; Don't get distracted. Turn off your cell phone and start only your Internet on and leave other applications closed; Make sure the pop-up blocker is turned off in your browser.
This ability test consists of three parts: abstract, numerical and verbal. Each test takes exactly 17 minutes. Your answers and scores will be compared with a norm group. You can already prepare this part by practising comparable tests on, for example, 123test.nl. By the way, practice is mainly useful to get used to the way of thinking. The tests during the actual assessment may look differently than during practice.
Read the instruction for the abstract part. Read the instruction for the numeric part. Read the instruction for the verbal part.
Career Values (Drivers) Questionnaire
The Career Values' questionnaire is a personality questionnaire that maps out which factors of work motivate a person. Career values are personal characteristics that make someone experience certain work as motivating. This questionnaire examines four groups of career values: primary, secondary and neutral motivators and potential demotivators.
The questionnaire has no right or wrong answers. It's about your personal preferences.
Quinn Management Roles Questionnaire
The Quinn Management Roles Questionnaire provides insight into the preference for certain management roles. It becomes clear how these roles relate to the management activities in the current position. Quinn's theory assumes eight different and sometimes opposing roles that a manager must fulfil to lead effectively. According to the theory, a manager must master all eight management roles well to be effective. The insights from this questionnaire can serve as a starting point for increasing management effectiveness.
The following also applies here: the questionnaires have no right or wrong answers. It's about your personal preferences.
TMA Talent Questionnaire
The TMA Talent Analysis identifies 22 drives, 44 talents and 53 competencies. The Talent Analysis is positive, non-judgmental and provides insight into drivers, talents, culture, and competencies. Completing the questionnaires takes approximately 60 minutes. It is important to note that it is not about a right or wrong answer. It is about motives and talents. There is no wrong answer possible in that. You get 312 multiple-choice questions online, and the questionnaire does not work in time.
The TMA Capacity Analysis
Capacities Analyses of TMA Method provide a good perspective on the intellectual level of the candidate and, therefore, a predictor of functioning in a job where abstract thinking and faster understanding is a requirement. The norm groups of the TMA Analyses are scientifically compared every two years with standard groups at a middle and higher level.
The Logical Figurative Understanding analysis consists of 15 questions. In this analysis, the candidate gets to see a series of figures or matrix per question containing a certain logic that the candidate has to try to figure out.
The analysis Logical figure insight consists of 26 series of numbers arranged according to a specific pattern. The candidate must understand that the systematic change in numbers can occur by addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Sometimes two or more of these co-occur in a sequence. The sequence always continues with 1 number.
The Logical Language Understanding analysis consists of 20 questions. In this analysis, the candidate is shown a combination of two words per question that relate to each other in a certain logic. Also shown is a word that must relate to another word with the same logic as the first pair of words. These are language analogies.
