Testing Instruments

Delta Personal Development Centre is the leader in life-work planning and learning systems. Through a wide selection of assessments, we have helped students develop and make a smooth transition from school to work. Our assessments are designed to measure aptitude, interest, and preference.

From each assessment a report is generated and this profile is a view of the child’s unique personality type. This knowledge becomes the basis on which effective strategies are employed by parents and teachers to aid the child’s overall development.

The samples below were taken from five of our instruments:

  1. Check the statements you agree with
    - I prefer to hear a book on tape rather than reading it.
    - My room, desk or house is usually disorganised.
    - I like sports and I think I am a pretty good athlete
