I'd be interested to know what people's thoughts are in regard to using aptitude tests with your potential placements. Have you used them? How accurate and helpful do you find it to be when placing an employee in a position?

For some of the positions we fill, it is necessary to have aptitude testing done, especially when it comes to some of the companies that really want to test the persons skill level before we hire them, the company then reviews the test results as well as our people and we then move forward from there. We have come across some people who claim on the resume to have the skills and they totally fail the test and interview processes.

I personally do not like aptitude tests.  I think they do not fully measure an employees skill level.  Many times a candidate will not score well on them because they are nervous or anxious that day. As a reult, their scores will not measure their true level of skill.  I do understand in some job placements it might be necessary to use them, but I would not base my hiring decision on them.

Aptitude test I think is a must. Applicants sometimes lie on their CV that they have submitted. It is one way to verify the truthfulness of their CV. Also, people excelled differently at different type of intelligence-it maybe on logical, language, verbal, interpersonal, etc. It is appropriate to have aptitude test to really know the area at which they will excel.

I think the nervousness of a candidate as somebody said may not bring the best results.
