Imagine you had to assess someone’s ability to perform a task or demonstrate a skill. You might hire this person on a temporary basis and watch him or her closely over the space of a week or two. Depending on how well this person did over that time period, you might then hire or fire the person in question.
But what if you could assess this person’s ability or skill more quickly? What if you could do it in only one hour? What if you could do it in only a few minutes? If you can accurately and adequately assess someone’s ability or skill in less time rather than more, then by all means go for less. Less really is more in these circumstances.
Here at TheBestSchools.org, we very much believe in avoiding useless and superfluous activity. If someone has demonstrated proficiency in a given subject, then that’s all the credential he or she needs. Similarly, if the point is not to demonstrate proficiency or achievement but rather aptitude, suggesting that a course of training is likely to issue in proficiency or achievement, then let’s assess aptitude quickly and not beat around the bush.
Which brings us to the point of this short notice. Here at TBS we have developed a ten-question test that, in our view, quickly and reliably assesses aptitude for STEM (= science, technology, engineering, mathematics). In our view, if one wants to hire or enroll someone to work in or learn about STEM, one can’t do better than have this person take the test we developed.
Only ten questions and twenty minutes in length, this test quickly identifies people with the right stuff to do science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Give the test a try and see how you do. If you get at least six correct, consider yourself in the top five percent of STEM students. Click here for the test.
