How are the results measured?
Your corporate treasury technical knowledge level score is based on the type of questions answered correctly. Each category contains 30 questions with a time limit of 10 minutes. It is not expected that you will answer all the questions within the allowed time. There are 4 categories in total.
The question structure is build with the method ‘easy’ to ‘complex’. The more complex questions are rated with a higher score. Therefore, speed in combination with correct answers will result in a higher score. Your score will be presented as an absolute number and also will be compared with a reference group based upon the length of relevant treasury experience.
Your psychological preferences are scored on a stanine scale. A stanine scale is a way of presenting the area of normal distribution of your results compared with the ‘general population’ and all other treasury testees (not related to the number of years of experience).
How are the results presented?
Per knowledge subject you will get a benchmarked score on how many questions you answered correctly of the total available answers in that category. Besides your score, we will show how many questions you made and how many of those you answered correctly. The personality profile is measured through assessing your natural inclination towards certain personality aspects. The report shows your benchmarked score on a stanine scale.
