Management Aptitude Evaluation (MAE)

The online MAE is a general indicator of the individual’s ability to lead and manage others. The individual indicators help candidates identify proficiencies in problem solving, decision-making, interpersonal skills, critical thinking and learning.

Content Components Assessments
Achievement Drive Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to be competitive and driven to be the best. This characteristic is important for positions where the attainment of established goals and benchmarks are important. It is also important for positions where there may be competition within departments or between coworkers and where the individual is expected to grow and advance to higher levels within the organization.
Assertiveness Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to assert themselves, speak their mind and enjoy taking control or the lead in group situations. This characteristic is important for positions where a strong personality is beneficial.
Leadership Measures the degree to which the individual has the necessary interest, ability and disposition necessary to perform in a leadership capacity. Leadership is important for positions that require the management of others and/or the coordination of the work of others to accomplish the organization's goals. Supervisors, managers and team or group leaders need leadership characteristics to be successful.
Self Confidence Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to be self-assured, independent and is confident in their decisions and actions.
Stress Management Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to demonstrate patience and stress tolerance during challenging work-related situations. This characteristic is appropriate for positions requiring interactions with customers, multitasking and jobs in fast paced organizations.
Supervision Measures the degree to which the individual has the ability and disposition to motivate others, relate well to employees, create a sense of unity among staff, and maintain high levels of employee satisfaction. Supervision skills are important for positions that require overseeing and managing others.

An average overall score of 60% is required to pass the MAE. Scores of less than 60% in individual areas are acceptable, however, this should be seen a professional development opportunity to help strengthen that area.

The MAE may be taken as many times as is required to achieve a successful outcome, however, a period of 30 days must elapse between evaluations to allow sufficient time for professional development.

To register for the MAE, contact the Head Office.
