Employment Screening Tests

After the pre-screening of the applicant, the employee gets the details regarding the applicant's credentials, education, and criminal background. The employer also has the other details such as drug abuse and sexual harassment records to ensure that the candidate does not create any problems later on. However, this screening does not provide the employer an insight of the technical and general knowledge possessed by the candidate. A different kind of screening test would be required to check if the candidate would be well suited for the post.
Employee screening tests must provide accurate and relevant information with regards to the industry for which the candidate has applied. Pre-employment test selectors can help the employers decide on what screening would be necessary for the post for while the applicant applied. The test selector has a very wide database consisting information regarding the skill sets required for a specific profession. The best would be picked up for the candidate's assessment based on the skills the job requires. The test would reveal whether the candidate is fit for the job. The first part might contain general question relating to aptitude, math, and comprehensive English. The second part would have technical questions to enable the employer decide if the candidate has the requisite knowledge and abilities to handle the said job.
Test selectors can be used to assess the candidate's technical and general knowledge but it still depends on the hiring manager to decide on other factors before employing the individual.

Breaking Down the SAT / TPA
Contrary to popular belief, the SAT or TPA (Id) is not the single most important moment of a high school student's academic career. Perfect SAT scores will not get a "D" student into Harvard, and weak SAT results will not keep a valedictorian out of college altogether. While this may be reassuring to many students and parents, the truth is that SAT scores remain a significant component of the college admissions process at nearly all schools, so strong SAT results, along with academic achievement and extracurricular excellence, can often help a student gain admission to the college of his/her choice. Despite the importance of SAT scores, many students take the test without ever preparing or knowing what to expect, which can be disadvantageous given the increasingly competitive nature of college admissions. So what should students expect from the SAT?
Administered by The College Board, the SAT is designed to assess a student's capability for logical reasoning. The current SAT, which was revised to its current state in 2005, tests students in critical reading, writing, and mathematics. Students receive a scaled score between 200-800 (with 800 as the highest score), for each of those three sections. Combining the three section scores provides a cumulative SAT score, making a 2400 the "perfect score" on the test, although students can often still miss a question or two and receive a 2400. The national averages for the SAT vary slightly from year to year, but they tend to hover around 500 for each section, making an "average" cumulative score around 1500.
While the SAT incorporates certain strategies that may be counter-intuitive to some students, its subject matter is relatively straightforward for most high schoolers. The mathematics test only covers algebra and geometry topics, so unlike the ACT, no experience with trigonometry or precalculus is required to score well. On the critical reading test, passages are designed to be at or slightly below a standard high school reading level. And finally, although the writing test includes a timed essay, its other questions focus only on common grammatical errors while ignoring difficult areas such as punctuation and conventional expressions. In short, most high school juniors and seniors are well equipped for the SAT in terms of the subject matter they have studied in school.
Students often struggle with the SAT due to the test's timing, scoring, and question style. It can be very difficult for an inexperienced student to maintain proper pacing, stamina, and focus over the span of nearly four hours, making SAT preparation a wise investment for students. The test's scoring can also make things difficult for some students since incorrect answers deduct a fraction of a point from each section's overall score. As such, leaving questions blank can sometimes be advantageous, while other situations may necessitate educated guessing. Furthermore, the SAT often includes confusing phrasing into its questions, requiring careful reading and a consistent approach. Students can also take many shortcuts on the SAT, particularly on the mathematics test, but they usually not obvious to students who are not already familiar with them.
For these reasons, preparing for the SAT ahead of time by reviewing subject matter and taking practice tests can be an invaluable way to cut down on anxiety and improve test performance. While the SAT is stressful, it is manageable as long as students realize what they are being tested on. Strong SAT scores can make the difference between acceptance and rejection at many colleges, and can also help students win scholarship money at many institutions. If students prepare for the SAT by planning to approach the test in a logical and organized fashion, they typically score well and enter the college admissions process with confidence.

SAT Secrets to Score 2200+
If you have read my previous article, you would have learned some strategies that can take the load off your mind for SAT test preparation. All these strategies bear fruit only when they are put into use. If you want to score high, you need to consciously use these strategies repeatedly until they come to you naturally. Continuing the discussion over those strategies, this article will cover the remaining strategies to work your way to a 2200-Plus SAT exam score. Make sure that you understand each technique carefully, and then implement the same every time you attempt a SAT practice test. I cannot emphasize how important these strategies are for maximizing your SAT exam score.
Guessing Smartly
Elimination is a smart way of solving SAT questions. However, you should eliminate an answer choice only on sound judgment and not only because you 'feel' it is incorrect. If your intuition is backed my logic, go ahead and eliminate the choice. When you eliminate an answer, you would be left with four answer choices. In other words, you would have one-in-four chance to guess the answer correctly. Now, for every four questions you attempt and answer, you may get one correct and three incorrect. One correct answer would fetch you one point, while three incorrect answers would deduct 3/4 points. By simple subtraction, you see that 1 - 3/4 = 1/4 or quarter points. Hence, by eliminating just one answer choice, and then guessing on the remaining four choices, you get quarter points. Wonderful, isn't it? Never miss a Student-Response Question
No matter what, try answering each question on the grid-in section. This is because there is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly. The worst scenario would be that you get no point for a question. Filling out the answer sheet correctly
College Board would not see how you solved a problem; it would just see the answer sheet and check whether you have registered the right answer in the right way. Students, during the last few minutes, get nervous and end up filling in the wrong answer in the appropriate bubble, or the wrong bubble for the right answer. How to ensure that you fill in the bubble properly? a) Mark the questions that you skip
You can circle the question that you want to skip. b) Mark your answers in the text book
This would help you fill in the answer on the answer sheet properly.
Time Tracking
You must keep track of time when you solve SAT questions. You should know how much time is remaining and how many questions must be attempted to maximize your score. SAT practice tests can help you keep track of time. That is why you should solve a number of SAT practice tests keeping in mind (and implementing) the strategies mentioned in my articles.


Test Maturity Scale

How Do You Rate?
Following is a speech I gave in Orlando, Florida in 1970. The day before I was to give the speech I received the May 1970 issue of SCIENCE OF MIND magazine, and there was the speech (a friend had suggested I send it to this particular magazine). As my readers know, I'm a firm believer that principles are indeed carved in stone (please see my devotion, "Principles Carved in Stone"), and that time only reinforces truth. Maturity is a montage of traits reassembled into a maturity that enables us to live a productive and profitable life.
We hear much about our IQ, but I wonder if our MQ (Maturity Quotient) isn't equally important. A person's IQ needn't be high to survive the emotional blows of life, but a fair score on the MQ scale is necessary to cope adequately with life without being demolished.
I hesitate to say unscathed, for it is the indifferent and the calloused who come through unscathed. These are the people who also lose out because they neither give to life, nor do they get out of life, what really matters. They become nonentities who wind up as leeches on the emotions - and often the finances - of others.
Those who are touched are often wounded. One's maturity quotient covers all the tests of life. Its aspects are several: emotional, mental, social and spiritual.
Emotional Maturity
The first signpost is stability. There is a difference between stability and maturity. Stability is firmness of character, marked by steadfastness of purpose and the ability to handle stress. Maturity is fullness of character; a ripening and completeness. Obviously the stable person has the better chance of arriving at maturity than the unbalanced and fearful person.
The emotional barometer should read moderation. The emotionally mature person is one whom Norman Vincent Peale calls a tough-minded optimist. Tough is defined in Webster's Dictionary as "having the quality of being strong or firm in texture, but flexible and not brittle; yielding to force without breaking." Flexibility is adaptability; a bending, not a snapping.
The emotionally mature person has tolerance for mistakes, his own as well as another's mistakes. To be blind to one day's opportunities does not forever hold him back. Self-recrimination and doubts never accomplishes a thing.
This person has positive feelings of affection, tenderness, joy and pride. If negative feelings of hostility, hate, guilt and fear take over, he is balanced enough to realize that these are temporary; that he must face them with constructive thought and action. If he finds that he can't overcome these feelings by himself, then he seeks wise counsel of relatives, friends, or professional people, rather than take comfort in the bottle or the barbiturate.
The emotionally mature person doesn't trip over the molehills of barbs, indifferences, interferences, and petty jealousies of others. He seeks a wider understanding of life, a fuller view of man's character and potentialities. He is able to sacrifice his desires in exchange for the right fulfillment of himself and of others. The mature person knows that "the stresses of life distort people to inferior caricatures of what they might have been," to quote Harry Stack Sullivan. So he tries through common sense to minimize these stresses, or learn to cope with them through a better understanding of the situation and the people who make up that situation. Mental Maturity
In his mental approach to life, the mature person has the power to solve his problems. He has the mental stamina to accept life's challenges and adventures; to stand by his own ideas and to accomplish his goals. He has the courage to forge his potentialities into actualities. The mature person dreams creatively, and he makes his dreams realistic through determined efforts. He recognizes and takes advantage of opportunities, knowing that God's help is sustaining him. He also has perspective - he realizes what is important enough to keep and what must be discarded if he is to accomplish worthwhile goals. From each encounter with people and events, his horizons broaden.
The mentally mature individual also has insight. He has the ability to imagine the best for himself and others; to sense his possession of physical and mental health; to "see" the whole of his future and then plan its parts so that each day's work leads to that whole. He appreciates patience and perseverance, and knows that he can't allow himself to indulge in mental laziness. He feels a sense of obligation to give back to life the gifts of his mental and physical vigor in the form of creative endeavor.
Just what constitutes success? Is it prestige symbols? Is it only monetary reward? Or is it mainly creative accomplishment? If the mature person wants to be truly happy as well as successful, he will choose the creative accomplishment that will utilize his best talents and aspirations, and that will bring satisfaction to others, also. Of course financial reward and prestige need not be isolated from real success. The mentally mature person is perceptive of the order of importance.
Social Maturity
As for social maturity, a person's environment does much to mold his attitudes toward himself and others. Where there has been severe negativity, much effort is needed to gain a more constructive view of life. However, if a person has been fortunate enough to have had associations that were emotionally, physically and intellectually satisfying in his formative years, then his attitudes will be mature in his later years. Dr. Joshua Liebman says of this man: "Salute the adult who through sympathy and imagination makes himself part of the culture and the dreams of the ages, a companion of life both in triumph and in failure." What a beautiful sentiment!
The world is full of those who need what the socially mature person can give, whether it is a helping hand, a sympathetic ear, or a product of his intellect or dexterity. The mature person learns to weigh the results of his generosity, and he permits others the benefit of being generous also.
As for love of another, he knows that it often involves heartache. Yet he understands that the worst form of selfishness is not to love for fear of not being loved in return. The mature person is willing to take his chances, and is often surprised at the results of his tolerance and kindness. Love to him is sensitive and reverent.
Should he lose someone's love through a thoughtless act, indifference to a need, an unkind or unnecessary remark, the mature person will begin a remedy, remembering how Edna St. Vincent Millay penned it:
Tis not love's going hurts my days
As a citizen, this person obeys reasonable laws for the common good. If he feels that a law is unreasonable, he seeks correction within the framework of existing laws. He cherishes freedom, and he knows that democracy needs mature men and women. Dictatorial systems evolve only when people are no longer willing to depend upon themselves and their inner resources of strength and faith. The mature person will do all in his power to prevent this from happening through his interest in local, national and international affairs.
Spiritual Maturity
In a sense, spiritual maturity is not apart from emotional maturity, mental maturity, and social maturity. The mature person is aware of his spiritual nature, and he expresses it through faith, hope and love. Without faith he will be plagued by doubts, skepticism and cynicism. Without hope in God's guidance, he will be caught in a private hell of despair. Without love, he will misunderstand his own potential, and he will feel he has little reason to live.
Spiritually, the mature person has learned to transfer childish dependency upon material supports to reliance upon God. This gives him courage to face the many challenges in his life. Even in the most difficult trials he seeks the creative values in them, and he keeps in mind that the light of dawn follows the darkest night.
The mature person knows that there will be times when he must literally "let go and let God," when he must abide by God's good time rather than his own. He also realizes the futility of worry, and his faith helps him to alleviate his anxieties over past, present and future conditions.
The mature person is not defeated by adversity though he may be temporarily halted. He takes time to question his pattern of living. Has he let it become too object-oriented rather than ideal-oriented? He is willing to find the trouble and to remedy the situation through understanding and common sense.
The spiritually mature person has a deep love and respect for others. He identifies with their dreams and joys and sorrows, and he wishes the same fullness of life for them that he desires for himself.
He also helps to heal the nihilism that would bring the world to its level of misery, hate and distortion. Nor does he bow to a culture that would mass produce ugliness that purveys monstrous pieces of junk as art, or hideous sounds as music. Rather, he seeks the intelligent weighing of values and philosophies so that beauty and real creativeness keep alive the dreams of young and old alike.
Full maturity may be impossible to achieve, but here again only the maturing person understands and appreciates this. Maturity connotes completeness and completeness connotes perfection -- and who among us is perfect? Our maturity must be great enough to come through its challenges, its frustrations and its temptations undemolished!
