Abstract


The present study was undertaken to assess academic achievement, teaching aptitude to  predict indicators for successful teachers and and thereby enhancing the quality of higher  education. In the most sweeping reform of the education system in a generation,  the would-be teachers should take aptitude tests and undergo personality screening Though everybody knows that teachers are born, common practice is that anybody can teach. Just like other professions, teaching needs a particular skill set. A personality report can tell administrator that what kind of teacher someone is likely to be. Great teams are made up of diverse personalities and school also is a team effort. Personality profiling enables a better understanding of the individuals and their best accommodation to get the best from them. Psychometric profiling can give a more objective overview of a candidate’s character, strengths, weaknesses and working style. A psychometric test aims to provide measurable, objective data that can provide a better all-round view of a candidate’s suitability. The tests can give an indication of the working style favoured by a candidate and how they interact with both their environment and fellow workers.
