What is Contained in the Test Batteries?
The testing consists of the following components;
Trade theory test, Literacy tests, Numeracy tests and Practical tests (practical on request)
Trade theory tests
These were originally paper-based tests, which have now been converted to computerised versions. This includes making many of them into multiple choice (from open ended), largely carried out by STL. Most items have just a single point for each answer.
The original paper-based version had a number of different approaches including word knowledge and comprehension. These have been replaced by a series of separate tests which offer the opportunity to identify where are the specific problems. For example, it will be possible to say if the issue is literacy or second language.
This test is made to evaluate numeracy skills required for the artisan jobs.
A system has been created which offers the opportunity for supervisors to score practical skill during the testing process.
