Test scoring for research and talent development in Sport
Identify individual potential quickly and easily
The results are available as soon as testing has finished. They are presented clearly in the form of a table and a diagram (the “profile”). The scoring enables a structure pattern to be identified and hence provides the basis for customized interventions.
Additional details are provided in the form of information on working time, a progress chart and the test protocol.
The SCHUHFRIED standard in test scoring
The table lists the results and relates them to the scores of a comparison group (norms). The test protocol shows exactly how the respondent answered each item. In the profile the colored highlighting shows you at a glance which test results are average, which above average and which below average.
The profile can be copied into MS Office© documents by using Copy – Paste or exported to statistics programs (such as IBM SPSS Statistics©) for further processing. If you use two Vienna Test Systems, you can of course transfer the profile easily between the two.
Profiling and ranking function
As well as viewing a respondent’s individual results, it is also possible to compare the respondent with a job profile (“profiling”) or with other respondents (“ranking”).
Profiling and ranking are based on the so-called FIT score. This figure summarizes all the individual results in a single score; this greatly simplifies interpretation of the tests, so that the result can be taken in at a glance and easily compared.
Another advantage of the FIT score is the fact that it takes account of compensation options: if the respondent makes up for a weak score on one ability or personality characteristic by strong scores on others, this has a positive impact on the FIT score.
Profiling involves defining a target profile, which specifies the ideal levels of ability and personality traits for the sports profile. The FIT score calculated from the test session indicates the level of match between the ideal profile and the respondent’s actual profile.
A number of tested individuals can be compared using the automated ranking function. The ranking can take account not only of test results but also of biographical details, training times or information obtained in an interview.
Reports are one of the key benefits of psychological tests from SCHUHFRIED. Many years’ experience have enabled us to design the scoring system so that you get the results in the precise form that you need.
The report explains the dimensions tested and describes how the respondent scored on each one. Examples illustrate the significance of the dimensions. The Report is provided as a template and can be adapted as required in Microsoft Word®. For some tests the template is supplied in already finished form.
