The Information Technology Test Series is appropriate for the selection, development and promotion of staff working in information technology. The tests measure specific skills and abilities necessary for various IT-tasks.
Similarly to CIT3, this test also measures speed and accuracy in the checking of strings of letters and numbers, but in this case the candidate has to decide whether a line from a computer programme complies with a set of rules. A highly relevant test for any jobs that include any form of coding, programming or software checking.
Measures a candidate’s ability to visualize spatial relationships. Specifically, it measures the ability to visualize and manipulate shapes in three dimensions given a twodimensional drawing. The test discriminates at a high level and measures spatial ability relevant for engineers, designers, draughts people and IT staff working with graphics.
Measures high level numerical reasoning skills rather than skill in computational work. In particular, it assesses the ability to recognise the relationships between numbers, therefore the test is appropriate for any IT job where the recognition of numerical relationships or sequences is important. Calculators are not allowed.
This test primarily requires logical reasoning. To solve the test candidates must follow a set of instructions to manipulate a series of figures. This test simulates the ability to handle multiple and interdependent commands, an important ability in most IT jobs.
Measures the ability to evaluate the logic of written information. The test samples a range of computer relevant material such as user manuals, technical manuals, computer text books and computer press articles. The task of the candidate is to decide for a list of statements if they are true or false in the light of the information contained in the passage. The test is not knowledge based but designed to measure whether the candidate has the ability to understand and interpret written material.
This is a test of speed and accuracy in the checking of character strings made up of letters, numbers and symbols. These are important basic skills in any area of programming and especially important for computer data entry staff.
In this test candidates have to infer a set of rules from a flow-chart and apply these rules to new situations. This test is a high level measure of symbolic reasoning ability and is especially relevant in jobs that require the capacity to work through complex problems in a systematic and analytical manner, for example, in systems analysis and programme design.
This kind of test measures the logical reasoning skills of the candidate with the help of graphs. As many researches have confirmed, this kind of test indicates the suitability of software developers well.
Hasonlóan a CIT3-hoz, ebben a tesztben is gyorsan és pontosan kell ellenőrizni betű- és számsorokat, ám itt azt kell eldönteni, vajon egy számítógépes programnyelvből származó sor megfelel-e bizonyos szabályoknak. Ez a teszt kiválóan alkalmazható olyan munkáknál, amelyek kódolási, programozási vagy programtesztelői feladatokat foglalnak magukba.
