The administration interface of the Vienna Test System

Clear, user-friendly, multi-featured

The Vienna Test System utilizes the advantages of digital testing to the full.

It enables you to work with your data. You are not tied to a rigid test presentation and scoring scheme but can adapt your testing procedures to your requirements.

The structure of the Vienna Test System’s user interface facilitates this. It uses convenient and intuitively arranged index cards, making it easy to navigate and to switch between the different functions. User-friendliness, an adaptable main screen and ease of operation were top priorities in development of the Vienna Test System.

There is a comprehensive manual for each test and test set and for each of the specialist versions of the Vienna Test System (HR, NEURO, TRAFFIC, SPORT). We shall be happy to send manuals to you. Contact us at: 

Clear, comprehensive, automatic

Test scoring options

Depending on the tests used, choose between individual scoring, test battery scoring or test set scoring. In contrast to the standard scoring system, in which the results of each test in a test battery are shown separately, the test battery scoring presents the test results one below the other. All the display options (table, profile etc.) are available.


Display results in various forms


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 shown.


In the colored profile diagram the normal range is shaded gray, making deviations visible at a glance. In some tests additional explanations of the test variables are also provided.

Test protocol

The test protocol shows the respondent’s reactions, the working time for each item and any corrections to answers that were made. For many questionnaires an item analysis protocol is available, showing the questions asked and the answers given. If the person's responses are implausible or incomplete, warnings on interpretation of the test are given.


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 evaluation 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.

Profiling & Ranking





Profiling involves defining a target profile, which specifies the ideal levels of ability and personality traits for the job in question. The FIT score calculated from the test results indicates the level of match between the ideal profile and the respondent’s actual profile.


You can use the supplementary 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 see at a glance which candidate is most suitable. In practice ranking is frequently used to pre-select applicants.

Profiling and ranking are based on the so-called FIT score. This figure summarizes the individual results in a single score; it greatly simplifies interpretation of the tests, so that the result can be taken in at a glance and easily compared.

Another advantage of the FIT score is the fact that it takes account of compensation options: if the respondent makes up for a weak score on one ability or personality characteristic by strong scores on others, this has a positive impact on the FIT score.


Ideal for recruitment and sport-related assessment

The profiling function involves defining a target profile – i.e. the ideal combination of ability and personality traits for the type of job or type of sport. The FIT score calculated from the test session indicates the level of match between the ideal profile and the person’s actual profile (e.g. 78%). If you have defined several profiles, you can see at a glance which profile the candidate fits best.

The defined target profile and the ranking function can be used to compare a number of people who have been tested. The ranking identifies the candidates that best fit the requirements profile (i.e. who have the best FIT scores) and the order in which they do so. If required, criteria external to the test situation can be included with the tested criteria (e.g. biographical data, professional experience, school grades or interview data). Ranking is often used to preselect candidates.

Data export to 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).

VTS is versatile


Wide range of languages

The psychological tests in the Vienna Test System can be presented in up to 30 languages – at no extra cost and with no need for additional software installation – regardless of the language of the user interface. During translation tests are adapted if necessary to different cultural environments. The user interface and the scoring of results are available in 14 different languages.

Wide range of test forms

The Vienna Test System makes many psychological tests available in different test forms. These differ in aspects such as length, difficulty or mode of presentation (e.g. acoustic, visual). Parallel forms of many tests are available (identical object of measurement, different items); these can be used as alternatives.

Wide range of norms and integration of your own norms

All the tests in the Vienna Test System have sufficiently large, representative and up-to-date norms to enable test results to be compared with those of a representative sample. Many of the tests in the Vienna Test System have been normed on groups that include elderly people. Gender-specific and education-specific norms are also available. Norms that you have collected yourself can also be imported into the Vienna Test System.
