The Aptitude Profile Test Series - Occupational (APTS-O) modules measure verbal, quantitative, abstract and spatial-visual reasoning skills, which are important indicators of a person’s potential for growth and development in education, training and the workplace.
Each module can be used separately or the entire battery can be used for a more comprehensive assessment.
A more detailed description of the modules is presented below:
- Verbal Reasoning – Assesses verbal abilities with verbal analogy, semantic comprehension and vocabulary tests
- Quantitative Reasoning – Assesses abstract numeric, short word problems and problems requiring more extensive problem solving and information processing to find the correct solution
- Abstract Reasoning – Assesses ability to reason in an abstract context in which one or more rules must be identified
- Spatial-Visual Reasoning – Assesses the ability to mentally manipulate objects and to imagine how they would look from different perspectives
The APTS-E is for school use only. An organisational verison is available - the APTS-O.
