The Vienna Test System
Discover the possibilities
Wide range of languages: multi-lingual test presentation and scoring of results
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. If you so wish, the SCHUHFRIED consulting team can help you with the necessary calculations.
Powerful reports with your own corporate identity
All test results are displayed in tabular or graphic form, with the scores obtained placed alongside the characteristics measured. The test results can be transferred into a report template with a click of the mouse. In the report the results are described and their significance is explained by means of examples. For some tests and all test sets a pre-prepared report template is provided. This report can be edited (e.g. to add a logo or to adjust the scope and wording for the target group), printed and saved using Microsoft Word®.
Profiling and ranking function
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.
Test protocol function
For each test result there is a test protocol. This provides information at item level – i.e. it gives details of how each item was answered, whether it was worked quickly or slowly and (only for intelligence and ability tests) whether the answer was right or wrong and whether the answer initially entered was subsequently corrected. Analysis of the item protocol provides useful suggestions for training, especially if a particular structure to the response behavior is detected (e.g. under stress the respondent never reacted to auditory stimuli but only to visual ones).
