Online Technical and Quantitative Aptitude Test

The accelerated pace at which companies are adopting technologies to align tech innovation with their business strategy is leading to an increased demand for engineers. The future workforce is expected to have complex technical skills along with high order cognitive skills, and hence an online technical aptitude test is a meeting point for both these skill clusters that are high in demand.

What is a technical aptitude test?

A technical aptitude is a battery of tests to assess two important skill clusters: technical skills and quantitative aptitude ability. 

Which type of questions are asked in a technical aptitude test?

  • The section on technical skills consists of hands-on coding skills and multiple-choice questions to gauge the breadth of a candidate’s knowledge across OOPS concepts and data structures
  • Quantitative aptitude test comprises of numerical reasoning, data interpretation, and other topics that test the candidate’s problem-solving and arithmetic skills.

How can a technical aptitude test help organizations?

Computer science engineers are involved in all areas of software development and hence need to have hands-on experience in at least one programming language. The online technical aptitude test for computer engineers evaluates them on the depth of their knowledge (depth) as well as a basic understanding of related concepts and skills (breadth).

In addition to a series of technical aptitude questions, the assessment also includes a quantitative aptitude test to measure the candidate’s reasoning and problem-solving ability. It helps organizations understand the number-crunching skills of candidates as well as their ability to follow a logical and structured approach.

Mettl’s Online Technical & Quantitative Aptitude Test helps organizations evaluate candidates on critical competencies for an efficient screening process. The technical aptitude questions range from easy to medium and can thus be used to hire engineering candidates with 0-2 years of experience for entry-level roles. This online technical aptitude test is a powerhouse of questions that give an overview of the candidate’s knowledge and potential, making it a great assessment tool for lateral as well as campus hiring.
