Understanding Your Talents And Abilities Through Career Aptitude Tests
The Highlands Ability Battery
Career aptitude tests: The Highlands Ability Battery (THAB) is considered the gold-standard among tools assessing human abilities or aptitudes. Developed from the pioneering GE studies of Johnson O’Connor, it is a three-hour objective inquiry into the abilities and ability patterns of the individual who completes it.
The Battery is a career aptitude test which consists of nineteen different
Each worksample is timed to measure the speed with which the individual is able to do a particular series of similar tasks. The individual’s score on each establishes whether a particular task is more or less easy for that individual. Shown together on a personal profile and bar chart, the scores achieved by each individual reveal patterns or “clusters” of abilities which require analysis by a skilled interpreter. Once these patterns or “clusters” are understood, the individual is helped to guide his life and work into more productive and satisfying channels.
