The Operative & Mechanical Aptitude Tests assess the ability to reason with basic information and the visual representation characteristic of the work of a range of shop floor staff. No assumptions are made about educational standards, although those with tangible attainments in secondary education are potentially likely to do better.
These tests are appropriate for assessing unskilled, semi-skilled and skilled operatives in a range of industries including manufacturing, production, warehousing and logistics. They could potentially be used to select for the grade of first line supervisor – but not for higher positions where other Management Level Aptitude Tests are likely to be more suitable.
