Is the McQuaig Psychometric System Researched and Validated?
Our instrument is strongly validated. This System meets all the UK standards that the British Psychological Society and Psychometric Testing Centre set. We guarantee its success in your organisation because we are confident in the quality of this tool.

Does it recognise any differences in temperament based on sex, race or age?
No. Our research shows that sex, race, age, etc., have no influence on the results. This System enables you to recognise and discard your own personal bias. It encourages you to consider all candidates equally.

What do users see when asked to complete a Test or Survey?
Users are emailed their own personal ID and password with a link to McQuaig On-Line®.

They are advised of the privacy policies in place and asked to agree with them. Users are then directed to their own personal questionnaire. They then complete each section in turn.

Their reports are emailed directly to you within minutes of submission.
