Employee Assessment

Employee Assessments
Evaluating and assessing your employees is vital to maintaining a high-performing team. Accurate assessment can help your company determine the strengths and weaknesses of new employees. This valuable insight not only can appropriately match an employee's skill to the right job, but also can determine what additional training may be required. The Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) offers several products to help you accurately assess the skills and aptitudes of your employees to make sure that all new hires are set up for success.

Metalworking Skills Assessment
Designed to evaluate the skills of workers with limited manufacturing experience, each assessment package includes 10 copies of Test A, 10 copies of Test B, an administration guide and an answer template. Available in both English and Spanish, the Metalworking Skills Assessment is a great tool to evaluate the core competencies of shop floor employees.

Occupational Aptitude and Knowledge Assessment
The 60-item, multiple-choice test assesses mechanical aptitude, spatial and mathematical reasoning, measurement, use of communications and information, and the understanding of basic industry knowledge and behaviors of applicants for either entry-level training programs or job vacancies. Instructions, scoring templates, cut score recommendations, diagnostics and security practices are provided for two assessment versions.
