if applicants have the skills required for jobs you
need to fill:
Pre-Valuate is a
computer program that measures a person's skill
level with a specific computer software program,
math, spelling, data entry, and keyboarding speed.
Once the test is completed, results are displayed
in a graphic bar chart format. Information
provided includes percent correct and interpretive
descriptions that identify if the person's skills
fall into the Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced categories.
Some of the software programs assessed include recent
versions of Microsoft Windows, Word, Excel, Access
and PowerPoint, WordPerfect, Lotus, PhotoShop, Quattro
Pro, and Quark Express.
CareerScope is a
computerized assessment of interests and aptitudes.
The interest assessment identifies which jobs a
person would be happiest in and the aptitude assessment
determines whether the person has the skills to
do that type of job. The aptitudes measured
fall into these categories: General Learning,
Verbal Aptitude, Numerical Aptitude, Spatial Aptitude,
Form Perception, Clerical Perception, Motor Coordination,
Finger Dexterity, and Manual Dexterity. Your
applicants don't have to complete the entire assessment.
We can work with you to determine which aptitudes
are most important in the jobs you have available,
then customize the assessment to test those aptitudes
