The organization, Wonderlic Inc., has created several different types of examinations that are used by human resources departments and educational institutions. Two exams that are often used by human resources professionals during the hiring process are the WPT (Wonderlic Personnel Test) and the WBST (Wonderlic Basic Skills Test).
The Wonderlic Personnel Test is a test that measures a prospective employee's cognitive ability. The WPT is often administered by a human resources professional during the hiring process of new employees. The test itself tests a person's ability to perform several job related tasks. These tasks include the ability to solve problems, the ability to learn the specific job that the person is applying for, the ability to understand and follow instructions, and the ability to take learned knowledge and apply it to new situations on the job. The Wonderlic Personnel Test also tests a person's likelihood to be satisfied for a particular job, as well as their ability to benefit and learn from job training. The WPT also has the ability to match prospective employees with jobs and positions that suit their aptitude and abilities. The Wonderlic Personnel test only takes twelve minutes to complete and it is often administered by a particular human resources or hiring department. The test can be taken on paper, on computer, or on the internet. Tests taken on paper are scored with a key provided by Wonderlic Inc. Tests taken on the computer can be scored using software on the computer, and tests taken via the internet are scored by Wonderlic, with reports and results being sent via email.
The Wonderlic Basic Skills Test (WBST) is a test that measures a prospective employee's basic math and verbal skills. This test is administered by human resources professionals during a hiring process. There are two parts of the WBST; a verbal test and a quantitative test. Depending on the needs of the hiring process and the human resources department, either both tests can be taken together or only one test can be taken. The test can be used to compare a prospective employee's quantitative and verbal sills to the particular skills required for the job being desired. The content of the WBST is drawn from the United States Department of Labor's Occupational Information Network (O*Net), the General Education Development (GED) scales, and the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT). The test is taken with paper and pencil, but there are several scoring options. The test can be scored using software on a PC computer, using an online scoring template provided by Wonderlic, or b using a fax-back service that Wonderlic provides. If using the online scoring template or the fax-back service, results are emailed directly from Wonderlic.
