Test scoring options
Clear, comprehensive, automatic
One of the most popular features of the VTS is the facility to 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.
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.
Search for test results by test date, client code, respondent’s date of birth, tests used, etc.
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.
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. If you would like to know what these reports look like, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – we shall be happy to send you a sample report.
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.
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).
Enables you to import test results from another Vienna Test System or to import raw and/or norm scores on the test variables.
