    I have used wonderlic tests although it is the offline test I used. They also give you scores to match the position levels. I got it through TG associates but their website is down. It is a US company.

    Thank you very much guys . We are not sure if we need an IQ test or an aptitude test. Would this be suitable for an aptitude test to see if people are perhaps suited to sales for eg.

    Thank you very much. I am trying to narrow down exactly what I need. Is there a test that can pick up dyslexia ??

    To me a candidate must fill in an application form at your offices. This tests wether they can read and comprehend basic instructions. If they get that right then you carry on.

    Yes they do Ian, and yes some do get past the starting blocks. But a lot of our work is done on a computer and an online package whereby you enter and work on candidates cv's on line, enter clients details etc, so they may have filled in a two page form correctly because they perhaps spent a few more minutes working on it, but then find out that she cannot spell correctly etc etc, either because she is rushed or they may be dyslexic etc etc. So I am trying to find an online test whereby we can try to pick theses things up earlier. have found some very basic ones which are not suitable because if you have half a brain cell for eg you can figure out the correct answers, so preferably need a test that can test Apptitude, dyslexia and IQ as well where we can test them at an interview stage.

    And I thought printing was getting more complicated. That is why I try to keep my staff happy, I haven't employed anyone new in 4 years.
    I would rather get more automated than employ more people.
