The personality test focused on study situations
The purpose of the MPT Study is to form a picture of precisely those personal characteristics that are invoked in a study situation. The educational context has been incorporated into all questions. This creates a better picture of relevant study behavior. This test is a variant of the general personality test (MPT-BS) of NOA and includes the 10 scales below.
1. Rules and orderliness
This scale indicates how important a candidate finds it to stick to rules and guidelines in his or her studies and how structured people work.
2. Self discipline
This scale concerns the discipline that is shown during studying.
3. Adaptability and flexibility
This scale indicates how people respond to changes during their studies.
4. Self confidence
This scale looks at how many people are worried about the study.
5. Extrovert study behavior
This scale provides a picture of the extent to which people are focused externally within the context of a study.
6. Honest study behavior
This scale gives a picture of the degree to which people are honest and sincere towards fellow students and to the study program.
This scale indicates whether people regularly change their approach or whether they prefer to carry out study tasks in a familiar way.
This scale gives an impression of how active one is in the study and the extent to which one undertakes various (study) activities.
This scale gives a picture of the extent to which people find it important to learn new knowledge and skills.
10. Friendly and social behavior
This scale gives a picture of how a student feels about other students.
The MPT Study is suitable for men and women from around 15 years of age. In addition, the MPT-BS is suitable for both natives and immigrants. The MPT Study is designed for (prospective) students in MBO, HBO and at the University. When formulating the questions, it has been taken into account that they are applicable to all levels. Thus, for example, culture-sensitive questions have been avoided ("I am rather" straightforward ") and the language is concrete and simple.
Specific standard groups are available for HBO, guidance and for selection.
