Scoring of test results

clear, comprehensive and automatic



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.

Test protocol

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.


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).
