IKM, a top provider of web-based employee and candidate knowledge measurement solutions and services, announced today the introduction of a Linear assessment platform in addition to its gold-standard Adaptive assessment platform. Linear testing delivers all questions in the same order to each test taker, regardless of how earlier questions are answered. Linear testing is the preferred platform for aptitude testing, automating paper-based assessments and simplifying custom test creation.
Linear tests can be easily scheduled using IKM's standard test administration menus. Linear assessment results provide an overall score, percentile comparisons, skills analysis, and individual question analysis. Scores are available immediately upon assessment completion and can be optionally emailed to the test candidate and/or the test administrator.
All the sophisticated analytical tools available with IKM's Adaptive assessments are also available for the Linear platform. Assessment results can be easily integrated with existing learning management or HR systems and are stored in a secure database for subsequent review or analysis.
A special Linear version of IKM's popular test development tool (Testwrite™) is available and designed to enable quick and simple conversion of existing paper-based tests as well as custom content creation.
Along with the new Linear platform, IKM is releasing its first Linear assessment, Programming Aptitude. This assessment is targeted towards recent college graduates and other non-IT professionals who are seeking an entry level position in the field of computer programming. The assessment measures some of the skills that project success as a programmer, including numerical reasoning, cognitive abilities and analytical capabilities.
It is IKM's mission to be a one-stop portal for client assessment needs. The introduction of Linear testing and the Programmer Aptitude Test rounds out IKM's testing tools to meet diverse client requirements.
