Product Description

The Mechanical and Technical Understanding Test (MTVT) measures mechanical-technical understanding, an aspect of practical intelligence.

The MTVT is suitable for the following assessment purposes:

  • specific measurement of mechanical and technical comprehension;
  • as a supplementary test for investigation of general intelligence, if this is measured solely by means of verbal tests;
  • as an aid to the selection of apprentices and trainees on the basis of aptitude;
  • to provide teachers with information on the practical and technical skills of their students.

The MTVT is characterised by the following features:

1. All 32 multiple-choice items involve practical technical problems that can, in principle, be solved by visual inspection.

2. The items are arranged in ascending order of difficulty. The majority of respondents can tackle – but not solve – all of them within the given time. The MTVT can therefore be classed as a power test.

3. In keeping with its nature as a power test, the time allowed for the MTVT is limited (45 minutes).

4. The MTVT can be administered as an individual or group test.

5. Because of its modest requirements in terms of time and materials, the MTVT is an economical test.

6. The MTVT is an objective test and one that, in comparison with the majority of tests of this type, is highly reliable.

7. There is content- and factor-based evidence of the validity of the MTVT.

An electronic copy of the MTVT manual is provided with any purchase of the test. The manual is required by those administering and/or interpreting the results of the MTVT.

 

MTVT on HTS 5

The paper and pencil version of the MTVT was originally published in Germany in 1958. The MTVT is now taken using Hogrefe’s online testing platform, the Hogrefe Testsystem (HTS).
