A: We can certainly take your operational and functional risk assessment tests. Our job is to review those tests to determine whether they are appropriate and relevant to your career. In some cases, we may not always have the ability to assess those tests accurately. In that case, it might make sense to hire an outside firm to do the assessment tests for you. Our company does not provide assessments for individual jobs.
As a practical matter, you should think about whether the costs of taking your operational risk quiz for you are worth it. Typically, that will be determined by how much risk you are exposed to on a daily basis. If the cost is significantly less than the amount of risk you are exposed to, we generally recommend that you take the test. Otherwise, you would probably be better off just staying away from it all together. In our opinion, there is no economic reason for you to take a risk on this test.
If you have never taken a functional or a performance assessment test before, it can be intimidating to do. You may be wondering what to do, how to do it, and how you are going to take the test. As with most things, practice makes perfect. The most important thing to do is review the material before taking the actual test. Reviewing the material ahead of time will help you to not only familiarize yourself with the types of questions you are likely to face on the test, but it will also help you to make the right choices when you do confront those questions.
Most people who take a functional or an operational risk assessment test for the first time will not have any trouble answering the questions posed. Some will have a few questions that are easy, but others will have more difficult questions. That’s okay. The important part is that you get the questions that will challenge you in some way. If the questions are too easy or too difficult, you’ll find the test to be a waste of time.
If you are planning to take my operational risk quiz for me, I encourage you to purchase the study guide provided by the Risk Management Solutions test series. This study guide will give you a head start when it comes to understanding what you are likely to face on the test day. There are several scenarios on which the questions are based. In addition, each scenario is associated with a category of questions. These categories help you decide how you should approach the questions on the day of the exam.
Most people will breeze through the questions that fall under the category of operational. However, the group that will be considered “intermediate” will have to prepare far more questions than those in the higher categories. These individuals will probably have to go back and take the previous ones again before they can proceed. It’s best to be prepared to do this if you haven’t studied for the test in the past.
One last suggestion is to create a strategy before taking the test. Creating a strategy helps you to look at the questions you will face on a different perspective. It can also help you sort through your options more quickly and make better choices. Finally, practice makes perfect. By taking a few practice tests, you will get a good feel for the type of questions you will face on the day of the exam.
