Which Test Should We Use?
For Selecting Candidates for Training
If you are trying to recruit inexperienced people to be trained as programmers, you are looking for an aptitude for programming test. An aptitude test attempts to measure whether the applicant has the skills necessary to learn a new set of tasks. Aptitude tests are commonly used for entry-level programming jobs as well as for internal recruitment from other non-programming divisions within an organization for the purposes of retraining.
The Berger Aptitude for Programming Test, Form D (B-APT D) is by far our most popular aptitude test among our clients. This test was designed for measuring the ability of a person to learn the skills necessary to succeed in programming training for the mainframe world. This test is widely used as the first step in admission to programming training in many Fortune 500 companies.
If you are looking for trainees for newer technologies such as C, C++, Visual Basic, etc., consider the Berger Aptitude for Programming Test Advanced From (B-APT AF). The B-APT AF is a more involved test geared for those with prior programming experience such as a Computer Science degree and presents a higher hurdle to jump for the test taker. This test is also very popular among our large clients.
We also have aptitude tests for Computer Operators as well as aptitude tests for Systems Programmers.
For Selecting Experienced Network Administrators
If you are trying to recruit experienced network administrators, you will need a network administrator proficiency test. This sort of proficiency test attempts to measure whether the applicant knows how to apply their knowledge of certain well-defined areas in a productive fashion. Psychometrics' proficiency tests are built to predict success on-the-job as network administrators and go far beyond measuring success in training.
For Selecting Experienced Programmers
If you are trying to recruit people who already know how to program, you are looking for a proficiency test. A proficiency test attempts to measure whether the applicant knows how to apply their knowledge of certain well-defined areas in a productive fashion. Psychometrics' proficiency tests are built to predict success on-the-job as programmers or analysts and go far beyond measuring success in training.
