Vienna Test System (VTS)

The Vienna Test System (VTS) is a product of the company SCHUHFRIED. The system is a powerful software tool that combines all steps of psychological assessment into one:

  • Testing
  • Automated test scoring
  • Administration of personal data, tests and test results (database)

The user-friendly interface allows for easy-to-understand, uniform operation. This makes test presentation and scoring especially convenient and standardized. The VTS guarantees consistent quality without any errors, and multiple tests can be administered in a single test session, both on site and online.

  • in suitability assessment: in the safety & security sector for personnel decisions in blue collar professions, for staffing and development choices in white collar jobs, in career guidance and university entrance testing, in sports psychology to identify and support promising talents and in research
  • in driver assessment: to determine fitness to drive

A test set is an empirically based and validated predefined selection of tests with which a particular assessment question can be answered. This includes determining the suitability for a position as a train driver or detecting neuropsychological impairments.

The individual tests are presented in a seamless overall package and evaluated on a single page with a clear structure. Many test sets also offer scientifically based overall scoring that helps to assess the scoring at a glance. The objective is to answer the respective assessment query precisely and in detail.

It is possible to integrate existing questionnaires into the Vienna Test System.

Thanks to a broad team of experts in psychometrics, test design, and software development, SCHUHFRIED is able to either take on the joint development of a new test or adapt an existing test into the Vienna Test System.

Ja, Sie haben mit dem Wiener Testsystem die Möglichkeit, die erworbenen Tests zu Ihrer eigenen Testabfolge sowie nach Ihren Bedürfnissen zusammenzustellen.

Je nach Test können Sie auch die individuelle Testvorgabe konfigurieren. Tests wie INT oder INSBAT-2 können beispielsweise in unterschiedlichen Modi (linear, randomisiert, adaptiv) oder Schwierigkeiten vorgegeben werden.


Yes, with the Vienna Test System it is possible to purchase tests individually and to combine them into your own test sequence according to your needs.

Depending on the test, you can also configure the individual test presentation. Tests like the INT or INSBAT-2, for example, can be presented in different modes (linear, randomized, adaptive) and difficulties.

Yes, that is possible. For example, with a server implementation of the Vienna Test System, you can manage multiple test stations from a central administration device. In this case, respondents start testing with an individual ID.

Alternatively, location-independent testing is possible as well. Here, you can send out a link to your respondents, who then complete the test either proctored or in unsupervised mode.

All tests of the Vienna Test System completely fulfill the criteria of validity.

Validity indicates whether a test in fact measures what it sets out to measure. Validity is thus one of the main quality criteria of a test in addition to objectivity and reliability. There are different ways to collect evidence for the validity of a test. That is why a distinction is made between different types of validity:

  • Content validity: To what degree does the test provide a representative assessment of the characteristic to be measured?
  • Construct validity: Does the test provide data that match proven theoretical models on the characteristic/construct?
  • Criterion validity: Does the test result correlate with a relevant external criterion related to the measured characteristic, such as professional success, psychological diagnosis or driving behavior?

Depending on the application area of a test, some evidence for validity is more relevant than other evidence. The process of collecting facts proving validity is called validation.

When motor skills such as reaction speed and eye-hand coordination are measured with traditional PC and laptop keyboards, studies have shown that there is a mean deviation of around 25 milliseconds. In many cases, this is all it takes to skew an average result into an above average result and vice versa.

The response panel is an ergonomic and intuitive external input device that allows for measurements which are precise down to the millisecond for these kinds of tests. SCHUHFRIED developed the panel with the aim and objective of producing fair and precise test results for every measurement. Thanks to its simple design and intuitive operation, even respondents with little computer experience can use the response panel.

A fit score describes the degree to which a person matches a previously defined ideal profile of a “perfect employee”. To determine this match, the results of multiple tests are aggregated into an overall score according to their importance for this ideal profile.

The fit score is calculated for each test result by determining how large the deviation from this ideal profile is. Persons with a high overall score better fit the ideal profile than persons with a lower overall score. That allows you to see which respondent fits your position to what degree – all with a single glance despite comprehensive testing
