part of me is telling me to do it the other part is telling me "dont do it"...sasa sijui cha kufanya niko njia panda..it is also my dream job yani sijui nisemeje ila kutoa $75 na hujui utapata au la ndo sijui..nimeshasend back 'new staff assessment form' kanambia i should send him the CAPT score as soon as i can..niko njia paaandaa.
kama wote tulotumiwa tusipofanya test sawa,wanaweza kutumia criteria zingine kusshortlist,but kama kuna waliokwisha fanya hapo ndo imekula kwetu tusiofanya,lol..

I just spoke to radar wamesema hawafanyi.tena they are surprised wamepata simu zaidi ya 20 kuulizia hiyo test.

Labda kama sasa wanabania, kuna kazi ya taasisi moja ya kimataifa ilihitaji mtu wa masters, hao radar wakaita hata watu wasio na masters, jamaa mmoja ana bachelous tuu akaipiga hiyo test funika bovu, jamaa wote wa masters wakapigwa chini,akalamba job, hivyo nina hakina asilimia 100% raddar wanafanya, unless ni kienyeji tuu, not registers, na wazungu wakilijua hili,hao raddar watatemwa!.

Guys go for it, quick!!

You're investing for your future and this is only one off. Worrying about your money?? Look $75 - what is it?? think.

What is CAPT?

Cognitive Ability Psychometric Test is a maximum performance test that tests what you can achieve when you are making maximum effort. The test is divided into four parts (number accuracy and speed, word meaning, spatial visualisation and personality assessment) each with its own questions and a score.

After the test you will be awarded a certificate (simply a score card) which shows your scores and a total overall score.

How is your score interpreted?

Well, your scores are compared with an appropriate norm group. This is done by comparing the educational level, occupation, language cultural background and other demographic characteristics of the individuals making up the test group and the norm group to ensure their similarity.

In the world of work it is important for an employer to make some assessment of how effectively a new worker will perform. Over the past 80 years thousands of studies of this type of question have involved various assessments of potential new recruits: interviews, references, personality tests, graphology, intelligence tests, and so forth. The field's thousands of studies were reviewed by Schmidt and Hunter (1998). They found that a psychometric test of general intelligence had an average correlation of 0.51 with work performance.

Work performance is assessed in various ways, but one common method is ratings by supervisors. The only assessment that did better was a &#8216;work sample' test, where people carry out some of the work they will be doing in the job. This type of assessment is expensive and not suitable to many situations, whereas a mental test is cheap and can be given to all applicants. By comparison with mental tests, the following correlated more poorly with job performance: unstructured interview (0.38), conscientiousness test (0.31), reference checks (0.26), job experience (0.18), years of education (0.10), and graphology (0.02). Thus a cheap and fast mental test is almost universally applicable in recruitment for employment and has surprisingly high utility.

CAPT has increasingly become important these days.
