Achievement Test - October 5th, 2010

Achievement Tests:


These are designed to measure what the applicant can do on the job currently, i.e., whether the testee actually knows what he or she claims to know. A typing test tests shows the typing proficiency, a short hand tests measures the testee ability to take dictation and transcribe, etc.


Such proficiency tests are also known as work sampling test. Work sampling is a selection tests wherein the job applicant’s ability to do a small portion of the job is tested. These tests are of two types; Motor, involving physical manipulations of things(e.g., trade tests for carpenters, electricians, plumbers) or Verbal, involving problem situation that are primarily language-oriented or people-oriented(e.g., situational tests for supervisory jobs).



Since work samples are miniature replicas of the actual job requirements, they are difficult to fake. They offer concrete evidence of the proficiency of an applicant as against his ability to the job.


However, work sample tests are not cost effective and every candidate has to be tested individually. It is not easy to develop work samples for each job. Moreover, it is not applicable to all levels of the organisation
