Assessing Aptitude.

Aptitude tests are generally used to assess current abilities, as well as predict future performance. Most aptitude tests focus on cognitive abilities and are based on a particular theoretical framework of intelligence or mental abilities. Take the Cultural Fair IQ (which measures nonverbal ability), Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence and Visual-Spatial Intelligence tests online and discuss the following:

  1. The types of abilities each test appears to measure.
  2. A brief summary and interpretation of your results. Are your results consistent with your own understanding of your abilities?
  3. What factors might have influenced your performance?
  4. What are the advantages and disadvantages of taking separate IQ tests such as these instead of taking a comprehensive IQ test such as the Wechsler Scales or Stanford Binet that measure various areas of abilities in one test?
  5. What are some of the limitations of using aptitude tests over other forms of measurement such as observations, evaluations by others, etc?
  6. What are some of the strengths and weaknesses of utilizing online assessments versus traditional paper and pencil assessments?
