Mechanical Skills Test: General Aptitude
- Ability to understand mechanical concepts, processes, and relations between components
- Ability to use mechanical aptitude to determine causes of equipment failure or errors
- Multiple Choice
Identifying a dedicated, enthusiastic job candidate is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to hiring a capable employee, especially when recruiting one for an industry that requires a mechanical aptitude. In such an industry, understanding physical and mechanical concepts like spatial perception, weight distribution, thermal conductivity, and rotational motion is an important factor in an employee’s ability to accomplish goals effectively and safely.
A mechanically-inclined employee is able to evaluate the big picture – including the relationship between cause and effect – to draw sound, logical conclusions and produce high-quality results while maintaining safe working conditions. Incorporate this mechanical skills test into the job candidate search to help find a qualified individual who can easily determine when and why to use a specific tool or technique, how to best design or construct a structure for optimal performance and stability, and what material produces the most favorable outcome depending on the end goal.
The Mechanical Skills Test: General Aptitude module helps predict a job candidate’s ability to:
- Leverage tools and equipment to complete a task with the least amount of effort.
- Understand gear and lever mechanics to appropriately lift a certain weight or make equipment repairs.
- Determine what type of insulating material most effectively limits heat loss.
- Apply knowledge of friction, fluid dynamics, and other major forces to make processes safer or more efficient.
Use this mechanical skills test to quickly and easily automate your screening process for entry-level or experienced candidates, including mechanics, maintenance technicians, equipment operators, electricians, manufacturing and warehouse associates, or any other applicable position that requires employees to employ mechanical reasoning.
