Aptitude  Testing

The use of aptitude tests provides significant comparative advantages over conventional methods used. These advantages refer to the following issues:


  • objectivity, since the grading is not dependent on the scorer
  • standardization, since the process is fully controlled and determines the comparability of the score
  • reliability, since it quantifies and minimizes the potential error
  • validity, since these tests offer predictability with great precision
  • discriminability (the ability to discriminate) between different levels of measurement.


Through ability tests one can assess the person’s insight in specific areas of competence, thus allowing a safe prediction of the performance of the individual in his / her work (what one can do).
