Selection and presentation of a test, test set or test battery
From the test list, select the psychological test to be administered. Alternatively, use the “Dimensions” menu option. Click on the trait that is to be tested. The Vienna Test System then suggests the most suitable test or test form.
Selecting a test brings up a note of the test forms and the average time needed for the test. In addition, the scales and subtests of each test form are shown. Select a test form to use and click on the arrow. The test form now appears in the test sequence list. Start testing by clicking on the “Start testing” button, or add other tests/test forms.
The procedure for using a test set is similar: Call up the test set of your choice via the “Test sets” menu option, add it to the test sequence list and start testing by clicking on the “Start testing” button.
As well as individual tests, a test battery can be administered. A test battery is a fixed sequence of individual tests (fixed by the test administrator – in contrast to a test set, which is a readymade package). Completing the last item of one test leads automatically to the start of the next test. A test battery can be saved in advance: when it is needed the test administrator can then call up the test battery and administer it.
