A study by American Institutes for Research recognizes aptitude testing as an excellent predictor of future performance that can uncover hidden talents, help reveal strengths and weaknesses, and provide a way to compare and assess performance and differences among individuals. Further, the Association for Psychological Science claims the better one’s scores on aptitude tests, the better they perform in future endeavors. It is no surprise then that we want to measure a candidate’s aptitude before hiring them to determine if they would be a good fit for our organization.
