HUCAMA FACTORS is a comprehensive suite of personality, ability, and competency assessments with versions for general, professional, and executive roles. Interactive demonstrations and case studies will familiarise delegates with the tools.


Ability Factors is a non-verbal reasoning measure covering Diagrammatic Matrices, Number Series and Spatial Reasoning. The total time limit for the completion of the separately timed sections is 24 minutes, or 12 minutes in screening or follow-up use. A verbal component is also available.


Personality and Competency Factors revolve around an aligned Success Factors model that integrates Cybernetic Personality Theory (DeYoung, 2015) and the Great 8 Competencies (Kurz & Bartram, 2002). Following a development study involving 466 professionals and managers the draft model was unveiled at The Psychometric Forum in November 2020.


The tools measure 8 factors through 48 facets as aligned predictor and criterion measures respectively. They feature a dynamic Extreme Tie Breaker approach that applies ipsatised scoring techniques (Bartram, 1996) and builds on Kurz (2019). The observed total score validity with reviewer ratings was .50 (N=113).


Completion of the 80 (PF16), 160 (PF32) and 240 (PF48) statements takes about 10, 20 and 30 minutes respectively, and for the 48 statements in HUCAMA Competency Factors about 6 minutes.
