A technical understanding test, otherwise known as a Technical Test Battery, evaluates candidates' skills for technically oriented job positions such as skilled and non-skilled technicians, mechanics, machine operators and more. A vast number of employers use these tests to sift candidates in their recruitment campaigns, among which are natural gas and electric utilities, ports, heavy machinery, transportation and more.   

Employers use these tests in order to gather important information about the numerical, visual, mechanical and/or spatial skills candidates have. This helps them in staff selection decision making. 

Technical Tests Content

Technical test batteries usually contain four main areas of aptitude:

Verbal – Verbal tests include vocabulary checking, reading speed, information processing and basic verbal reasoning  

Mechanical – Mechanical comprehension is measured through the introduction of concepts and scenarios from the real world that require making inferences and minimal calculations. 

Numerical – Numerical skills are measured in two ways - basic numeracy and numerical reasoning. In most cases, for both test types the use of a calculator is not allowed 

Visual – Spatial awareness, tracking abilities and visual estimations are measured. 

There are great chances that additional skills will also be evaluated, such as technical understanding, process monitoring, fault diagnosis, inductive and diagrammatic reasoning. 

Sample Questions from Technical Tests

Some of the questions seen in technical test batteries can be found for free on different test sequences. For example, number series sample questions, numerical reasoning and spatial reasoning samples. For your information,  the free aforementioned samples can only serve as a glimpse into the world of tests, but  it is highly recommended to expose yourself to all types of questions and difficulty levels.
