The results are available as soon as testing has finished. They can be displayed in different ways.
- as a table (with test variables, raw scores, norms)
- as a profile (using a colored diagram; deviations from the normal range can be identified at a glance)
- with progress chart (enables the results of up to seven test sessions to be compared)
- with test protocol (shows the respondent’s reactions, the working time for each item and any corrections that were made to answers)
In the Vienna Test System you have access to all the sample data obtained for a particular test, enabling you to display the results alongside different comparison scores.
As scoring methods you can choose between
- individual scoring,
- test battery scoring,
- cross-dimensional scoring,
- test set scoring and
- profile comparison of test repetitions.
Details of the test scoring options
Table: The results table lists the test variables, the raw scores obtained and the corresponding norm scores. The norm score comparisons relate either to an overall sample or, where appropriate, to subsamples based on age, gender, educational level or other criteria. In addition to percentile ranks, T-scores and/or Z-scores are usually displayed. If reliabilities exist, confidence intervals are also given.
Profile: In the colored profile diagram the normal range is shaded grey, making deviations visible at a glance. In some tests additional explanations of the test variables are also displayed.
Test protocol: The test protocol shows the respondent’s reactions, the working time for each item and any corrections that were made to answers. For many questionnaires an item analysis protocol is available, showing the questions posed and the answers given. If the client's responses are implausible or incomplete, warnings on interpretation of the test are given.
Extended search: Search for test results via test date, client code, respondent’s date of birth, tests used, etc.
Scoring method: Depending on the tests used, choose between individual scoring, test battery scoring or test set scoring. In contrast to the standard scoring, in which the results of each test in a test battery are presented separately, the test battery scoring presents the test results one below the other. All the display options (table, profile etc.) are available.
Word report: A report template is provided for all test sets and tests. Clicking on “Word report” incorporates the test results into this report template. This report can be edited (e.g. to add a logo), printed and saved using Microsoft Word®. The report explains the dimensions tested and describes how the respondent scored on each one. For some tests transfer of the test results into the report template is automatic; here, too, the report template can be adapted to your requirements in Microsoft Word®.
If you want to know what a report looks like, please send an E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to send a report sample to you soon.
Ranking: You can use the additional ranking module to compare a number of respondents. The ranking is based on the extent to which the respondents meet the requirements profile (previously defined by you via the “Profiling” option). You can immediately see which candidate is most suitable. In practice ranking is frequently used to pre-select applicants.
Data export in VTS, CSV, SPSS: All test results can be exported into standard statistical programs such as Microsoft Excel® (using the CSV data format) and SPSS for further statistical processing. Test results can also be exchanged between two Vienna Test Systems (VTS).
Import: Enables you to import test results from another Vienna Test System or to import raw and/or norm scores on the test variables.
