PQA: Results & Scoring

The result of Personal Qualities Assessment is represented in score form. Each test scores are individually mentioned.
The results for Mental Agility Test; MAT - are given as scores that express the number of correct answers. The results for Mojac, NACE and the Personal Characteristics Inventory are provided as four separate scores:
  • a moral orientation score indicates the interpersonal skills and social responsibilities of the applicant
  • An Involved vs. Detached score indicates the responsiveness and confidence of the applicant. The higher the score more is the understanding level of the applicant.
  • A Resilience score indicates the flexibility of the applicant. The higher the score more is the spirit to work under any given conditions.
  • Control score indicates the degree of self-control.
