The Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test® (BMCT) has set the standard for the selection and development of employees in this field of assessment and the new BMCT - Revised continues to offer users the confidence of an established test with years of international development and refinement.
The revision of the BMCT has extended norms (US) which now include those involved in engineering, installation, maintenance and repair, automotive, aircraft or general mechanical positions, transportation or machine operators, skilled tradesperson, and sales representatives in technical or industrial settings. Users are now provided with scaled scores from which to aid their interpretation of examinee performance.
The revised BMCT also incorporates more contemporary artwork for some items, increasing face validity.
The BMCT focuses on practical problem-solving ability, application of physical laws and mechanical operations. It indicates a candidate's ability to deduce "how things work", responding to questions associated with a series of clear illustrations showing a particular mechanical principle in operation.
68 test items require the application of a physical law or mechanical operation and are presented in terms of simple, frequently encountered mechanisms that require no special knowledge.
The BMCT can be used in individual assessment or in a group setting, providing flexibility to administrate in recruitment or developmental processes.
