Test scoring options
Depending on the test, you can choose between an individual scoring, a test battery or a test set scoring. In comparison to the standard scoring, which provides a separate result display for each test within test batteries, in the test battery scoring the results of the tests are displayed directly below each other. All result options (table, profile etc.) are available.
At the beginning of each scoring there is a customizable title line, the data of the test person, a short description of the test and the norm adjustment which automatically takes into account the estimated influence of age, gender and education on the test performance.
The results table lists the test variables, the raw values obtained and the corresponding standards. In addition to the percentile ranks, T-values and/or Z-values are usually displayed. If there is reliability, confidence intervals are also given. "Traffic lights" also provide a quick overview of the extent of the impairment. In the case of a progression test, the tabular display provides a common overview of initial and progression testing.
Profile and profile comparison
In the colored profile chart, the normal range is highlighted in gray so that you can see deviations at a glance. For some tests, additional explanations of the test variables are displayed. If several test results are available for a person, these can be used for a profile comparison. In this way, you can interpret the course of the illness or identify training successes.
The test protocol shows the reactions of the test person, the processing time per item and any corrections made to the answers. An item analysis protocol with the formulated questions and the given answers is available for some questionnaires. If the answers are implausible or incomplete, warnings are given for test interpretation.
Notes on test interpretation
If a test is cancelled or other discrepancies occur, these are displayed at the end of the evaluation as a note on test interpretation.
A report template is provided for all test sets and tests. This report can be edited (e.g. to add a logo), printed and saved using Microsoft Word®. Furthermore, the report explains the dimensions tested and describes how the person 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®.
Some extensive reports have been specially prepared for use in human resources (recruitment and staff development). They contain interpretations, interview guidelines and specific suggestions for action; all this information is based on robust validation studies.
Their succinct text and graphics provide a clear summary of complex test results and make them easy to understand. They not only describe the candidate’s test results but also interpret them. An overall score of the candidate (FIT score) shows at a glance how well he or she is suited to the post.
Another advantage: the test results are supplemented by interview guidelines and an onboarding plan. This improves the efficiency of the recruitment process and the objectivity and quality of personnel selection. Each report is available in three versions: one for the recruiter, one for senior management and one for the candidate.
For an accurate interpretation, the results of psychological tests must be placed in the appropriate context. We therefore provide current representative norm samples for our tests and test sets. The performance or personality traits of your test person are thus compared either with those of the overall population, or with groups within the overall population that have similar characteristics (e.g. similar age, gender or level of education). In this way, test persons are always compared only with that part of the population that is relevant to the question.
NEW! As an additional support in scoring tests, we offer exclusive norms. These allow you to put test results into very specific contexts by comparing them to those of individuals in a particular field of activity (e.g., management, air travel, or professional sports), to personal characteristics (e.g., healthy, older road users), or to a form of impairment (e.g., affective disorders or depression).
If desired, it is also possible to use the results of your test subjects as a customized norm. This way, you only compare more accurately with the group of people that is relevant to you.
