The paper focuses on the assessments of the Ace Dzign web design company that are used to select a team to visit a client's premises in order to determine what is required for the client's website. The paper describes the assessment of potential members of the team by looking at the written part of the assessment, the verbal assessment, and the simulation. The paper relates that all three tests are considered aptitude tests, no part of the assessment is standardized, as the test seeks to measure variable performances, and in terms of ethnic, cultural, or age groups, there is no bias against any specific sector of the workplace. The paper then shows how data from this assessment is used to determine the best team members to visit the client's site. The paper concludes that by using assessments, a company benefits by ensuring the quality of its work at all times, and employees benefit by learning where their strengths and weaknesses are.
From the Paper:"Scott and Reynolds (2010) suggest that the first decision relating to an assessment is whether the focus should be on the person doing the work, or the work itself. A person-oriented assessment, for example, would determine the characteristics of a person that could influence the work they do, while a work-oriented assessment would determine whether the work required is suitable to the skills of the person doing the work.
"The assessment addressed here is one that relates to the particular work Ace Dzign provides. Frequently, it is required that a team visits the client's premises in order to determine what is required for the specific company. This includes technical aspects such as the company's Internet connectivity, along with other hardware and software, as well as creative aspects such as the design of the site itself. Team members must use their strengths to communicate with clients, design the site, and match the site design with the technology and requirements of the company.
"When such a team must be assembled, an assessment is then given to potential team members chosen from the employees of the company. The assessment is given in three parts: a written assessment, a verbal assessment, and a simulation (NSW Dept. of Education and Training, 2001). The written assessment determines the technical skills of the employee by means of a questionnaire."
