Aptitude Tests .ABSTRACT  Most commonly. speed and accuracy abilities and more. Aptitude tests are mainly made to assess intelligence and knowledge. Aptitude tests are administered on the computer and are meant to assess abilities in different cognitive areas Aptitude Definition The definition of aptitude is an innate. most commonly a period of 2 years. It is part of the psychometric tests at the assessment centre (the other part being personality tests. learned or acquired ability. 4 . The results of the psychometric tests in general and the aptitude tests in particular make up approximately 40-50% of your final score in the assessment. abstract reasoning. the very first part of the assessment centre consists of aptitude tests.General Information There are a number of important facts about the aptitude test one should be aware of:    Approximately only 15% of all applicants pass the aptitude test successfully. Aptitude tests most commonly consist of numerical reasoning. Your aptitude test results are usually kept or frozen for a period of time.

They use these to choose the most appropriate candidate for each vacancy. Aptitude and ability tests are designed to assess your logical reasoning or thinking performance. They are characterised by standardised methods of administration and scoring with the results quantified and compared with how others have done at the same tests. Different methods provide different sorts of information. They consist of multiple choice questions and are administered under exam conditions. group discussions and practical exercises.INTRODUCTION TO APTITUDE TESTS Organisations use many methods to assess applicants: application forms. written tests and exercises. They are strictly timed and a typical test might allow 30 minutes for 30 or so questions. interviews. Your test result will be compared to that of a control group so that judgments can be made about your abilities. Aptitude tests are structured systematic ways of evaluating how people perform on tasks or react to different situations. One method that is increasingly used is aptitude tests. 6 .

This makes online testing particularly suitable for initial screening as it is obviously very cost-effective. A power test on the other hand will present a smaller number of more complex questions. Speed tests tend to be used in selection at the administrative and clerical level. In speed tests the questions are relatively straightforward and the test is concerned with how many questions you can answer correctly in the allotted time. The advantages of online testing include immediate availability of results and the fact that the test can be taken at employment agency premises or even at home. 7 .You may be asked to answer the questions either on paper or online. Aptitude and ability tests can be classified as speed tests or power tests. Power tests tend to be used more at the professional or managerial level.

What do aptitude tests measure? These tests measure what psychologists refer to as your fluid and crystallised intelligence. 8 . The only difference between people is in how quickly they can correctly complete the test (i.e. The time is defined in such a way that only 1% to 5% of the population can correctly solve all the test questions within the allowed time frame.What is an aptitude test and what does it measure? Aptitude tests are designed to measure your work-related cognitive capacity. The concept behind these tests is that each test question has only one correct answer. answer all the test questions). That’s why these tests are always timed. and everyone can correctly solve all the test questions.

This type of intelligence is based upon facts and rooted in experiences. Work situations that require crystallised intelligence include comprehending written reports and instructions. Examples of the use of fluid intelligence include coming up with problemsolving strategies. 9 . will only be interested in your ability to apply your learnings to work-related situations. etc. ability to quickly learn new skills. etc. It’s more commonly known as ‘street smarts’ or the ability to ‘quickly think on your feet’ . strategic thinking. The most common are verbal reasoning. The aptitude test that measures your fluid intelligence is called abstract reasoning. and to apply this learning to a situation. past experience. The second component of intelligence that the aptitude tests measure is crystallised intelligence. ability to produce reports ability to use numbers as a tool to make effective decisions. and education. ability to quickly integrate new information. obviously. Employers. Fluid intelligence is the ability to think and reason abstractly and solve problems. spatial reasoning and mechanical reasoning. There are many aptitude tests that measure different aspects of crystallised intelligence. This ability is considered independent of learning. Crystallised intelligence is the ability to learn from past experiences and relevant learning. and becomes stronger as we age and accumulate new knowledge and understanding. numerical reasoning.The theory of fluid and crystallised intelligence suggests that people’s intelligence is composed of a number of different abilities that interact and work together to produce overall individual intelligence.

aptitude tests are similar to intelligence tests in that they measure a broad spectrum of abilities (e. perceptual speed. some specific set of skills (intellectual.

breaks mental ability down into many different characteristics which are supposed to be more or less independent of each other. a casual analysis of any group of test scores will nearly always show them to be highly correlated. However. Aptitude is better applied intra-individually to determine what tasks a given individual is relatively more skilled at 12 .

AVAILABILTY The aptitude examination system being an online system should be available anytime. where the data will come from and go to. Though the system should be available 24*7 some features made restricted. Often they are a preliminary step used to create an overview of the system which can later be elaborated. Further a database connection pool may also be required for assigning faster database connection. Quiz creator may allow the specific test to be available only at certain time like scheduled examination. the system would need to implement multithreading to achieve acceptable performance. 17 .Recovering the transaction using rollback. or information about whether processes will operate in sequence or in parallel. The test may be time limited so the candidates appearing will have limited time to answer the test. It does not show information about the timing of processes. 2.3. DFD A data flow diagram (DFD) is a graphical representation of the "flow" of data through an information system. Us of locking mechanism while updating database like transaction processing. 4. A DFD shows what kinds of data will be input to and output from the system. and where the data will be stored. PERFORMANCE The system would be used by multiple users at a time and may grow as time passes.DFDs can also be used for the visualization of data processing (structured design). modelling its process aspects. 1.

Generally. are as perceived from outside the system. A secondary actor is one from which the system needs assistance. alternative sequences that may also satisfy the goal.Use Case Overview A use case defines a goal-oriented set of interactions between external actors and the system under consideration. Actors are parties outside the system that interact with the system (UML 1999. and the accessibility encourages users to be actively involved in defining the requirements. The system is treated as a “black box”.2. It describes the sequence of interactions between actors and the system necessary to deliver the service that satisfies the goal. including system responses.1. without dealing with system internals. and therefore defines all behavior required of the system.C.

An actor may be a class of users. Cockburn (1997) distinguishes between primary and secondary actors. A use case is initiated by a user with a particular goal in mind. 19 . A primary actor is one having a goal requiring the assistance of the system. use case steps are written in an easy-to-understand structured narrative using the vocabulary of the domain.123). use cases capture who (actor) does what (interaction) with the system.113. for what purpose (goal). etc.

SEQUENCE DIAGRAM A sequence diagram in Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a kind of interaction diagram that shows how processes operate with one another and in what order. F. show how objects interact over the course of time. collaboration diagrams show the sequence by numbering the messages on the diagram. A sequence diagram shows. as parallel vertical lines (lifelines). but harder to see the sequence at a glance 27 . in the order in which they occur. However. instead of showing the sequence of events by the layout on the diagram. and. event scenarios. Sequence diagrams are sometimes called event diagrams. the messages exchanged between them. and timingdiagrams. This allows the specification of simple runtime scenarios in a graphical manner.Collabration Diagram Collaboration diagrams belong to a group of UML diagrams called Interaction Diagrams Collaboration diagrams. like Sequence Diagrams. as horizontal arrows. It is a construct of a Message Sequence Chart. This makes it easier to show how the objects are linked together. different processes or objects that live simultaneously.
