Basic Information

What is Capgemini Tech Aptitude Hackathon all about?

A technical understanding test, otherwise known as a Technical Test Battery, evaluates candidates' skills for technically oriented job positions such as skilled and non-skilled technicians, mechanics, machine operators and more. A vast number of employers use these tests to sift out candidates in their recruitment campaigns, among which are natural gas and electric utilities, ports, heavy machinery, transportation and more. Additionally, employers use these tests in order to gather important information about the numerical, visual, mechanical and/or spatial skills candidates possess.

Technical Tests Content:

Technical test batteries usually contain four main areas of aptitude:

  • Verbal – Verbal tests include vocabulary checking, reading speed, information processing and basic verbal reasoning questions.
  • Mechanical – Mechanical comprehension is measured through the introduction of concepts and scenarios from the real world that require making inferences and minimal calculations.
  • Numerical – Numerical skills are measured in two ways: basic numeracy and numerical reasoning. In most cases, for both test types the use of a calculator is not allowed.
  • Visual – Spatial awareness, tracking abilities, and visual estimations are measured. There are great chances that additional skills will also be evaluated, such as technical understanding, process monitoring, fault diagnosis, inductive and diagrammatic reasoning.
