Career in itself apart from the education has many facets to itself and thus developing one test which fits all and covers the diverse range of assessments is next to impossible. Hence, a customized bouquet of tests depending on the nature of the requirement is the key to a proper assessment.
An aptitude is a component of a competence to do a certain kind of work at a certain level. Outstanding aptitude can be considered “talent”. An aptitude may be physical or mental. Aptitude is inborn potential to do certain kinds of work whether developed or undeveloped.
Aptitude and intelligence quotient are related and in some ways differing views of human mental ability. Unlike the original idea of IQ, aptitude often refers to one of the many different characteristics which can be independent of each other, such as aptitude for military flight, air traffic control, or computer programming.
Aptitude tests identify the ability of an individual for different aptitudes. An aptitude test will generally cover the following areas: verbal ability, numerical ability, Clerical ability, spatial ability, closure ability, reasoning ability, Psychomotor ability and lastly, mechanical ability.
A personality test is a method of assessing human personality constructs. Most personality assessment instruments are introspective self-report questionnaire measures or reports from life records such as rating scales
Personality tests can predict something about how a job applicant will act in some workplace situations. It is used frequently as a career counseling test.
An interest inventory is a testing instrument designed to measure and evaluate the level of an individual’s interest in, or preference for, a variety of activities; also known as interest test.
Testing methods include direct observation of behavior, ability tests, and self-reporting inventories of interest in educational, social, recreational, and vocational activities.
The activities usually represented in interest inventories are variously related to occupational areas, and these instruments and their results are often used in career guidance. Being a key parameter, a career counseling test that identifies interest is critical for evaluation
An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. Scores from intelligence tests are estimates of intelligence. Unlike, for example, distance and mass, a concrete measure of intelligence cannot be achieved given the abstract nature of the concept of “intelligence”
Intelligence tests help us identify the potential of the student and his or her ability to understand and accomplish complex situations and studies.
Psychometrics is a field of study concerned with the theory and technique of psychological measurement. The field is concerned with the objective measurement of skills and knowledge, abilities, attitudes, personality traits, and educational achievement.
Psychometric assessments or career counseling test, as referred commonly, are standard scientific tests used to measure an individual’s mental capabilities, cognitive abilities & behavioral style.
These tests are designed to measure your affinity for a course, stream or role based on the required personality characteristics and aptitude for the same.
It is the biggest and most extensive field covering a variety of topics and subjects such as anthropology, archaeology, law, religion, music, arts, linguistics and languages, etc.
