What does this assessment measure?

Understanding of texts and evaluation of information.

What is the task?

The test taker is presented with a range of simple instructions and instruction manuals and is then required to evaluate – as fast as possible – whether a statement that refers to a text is correct or incorrect.

Each test is created by an item generator at run-time. This means that the assessment is different for each test taker thereby helping to prevent cheating, especially important for unsupervised, online administration. 


When can it be used?

This test can be used to assess potential to understand simple instructions and can be used in the selection of apprentices and administrative staff.


Test time: 8 minutes
Duration including instructions: 12 minutes
