    It's a question arising from an academic text. The text was all about situational judgement tests (SJTs). SJTs are questions asked at interview that build a scenario about which the job candidate is expected to have an opinion.

    But then work sample tests (WSTs) are pretty similar.

    So what's the difference.

    SJTs are about situations about which the candidate is expected to have knowledge and understanding and to which they can reason a response that gives the interviewer reason to believe that they will perform well in the job given such a scenario.

    WSTs are more practical. They are samples of work in which the candidate is expected to be skilful and about which he or she is expected to be knowledgeable. The candidate would be given a WST at interview and their response or activity should give the interviewer reason to believe that they have that skill or knowledge.

    Both are necessary elements of an interview or assessment centre.
