This assessment was developed by Clearlaw working with a research psychologist and an industrial psychologist, according to best practice for these types of assessments. 

Its goal is to identify areas for personal development by measuring four primary components with a number of sub-tests in each.  The primary components are:

  • Comprehension:the ability to read and understand business-level English
  • Verbal Reasoning:the ability to use written/verbal information to make inferences and decisions
  • Numerical Reasoning:the ability to manipulate numerical information in a practical context
  • Learning Potential: the ability to detect patterns and relationships in figures and shapes 

The Clearlaw assessment is a ‘psychological test’ as defined in law.  However, the position regarding classification of psychometric tests has been unclear since a High Court case in 2017 involving the Associated Publishers of South Africa and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). 

Proposed amendments to the Employment Equity Act had to be removed, so the current requirements in law are that the test be valid, reliable and applied and the outcomes assessed, in an equitable and non-discriminatory manner.  The Clearlaw test meets all of these requirements.  In addition, further studies will continue to build on the existing validation studies. 

If you are an employer, a small investment in your employees could have big returns.  Once you have identified the skills you need or would like your staff to have, contact Clearlaw for bespoke and standard courses at info@clearlawsa.org.za.

How can the brutal massacre of #horses & the brutal massacre of farmers not attract more attention? Are we exposed to so much that is indefensible, & unsure that the #law will deal adequately with these things, that we stay quiet?

@WhyJudgesMatter: We reflect on what is behind the judicial robe and the need to see beyond the robe’s privilege and power to address persistent problems facing women judicial officers. https://t.co/y4VdllrKPi #JudgesMatter #Judiciary https://t.co/CmoUsrV2zz
