DETAILS

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

The Schuhfried VTS enables computer-assisted application of a large number of highly diverse psycho-diagnostic tests and measuring procedures. In developing the system much emphasis was placed on transparent structure and largely uniform design. It is therefore simple to operate and easy to understand and does not require any special computer skills.

The VTS basic module is required for administration of any of the available tests.

The Schuhfried VTS supports the administration of both single tests and test batteries. Many of the single tests are available in different test versions. These test versions may differ, for example, in terms of test duration or difficulty or may be parallel forms. They are characterized by different parameters reflecting specific test requirements. They have been designed for administration to a specific population (e.g. psychiatric patients, children, etc.) or for special measuring purposes (e.g. repeated measurements). Test batteries are compiled from the available single tests and test versions.

OVERVIEW

Objective and personality test for behaviorally assessing achievement motivation under differing basic conditions.

APPLICATION

The Objective Achievement Motivation Test (OLMT) is a computerized test for behaviorally assessing achievement motivation. It provides information on the effort put into working the test under differing and important basic motivating conditions.

Main areas of application: aptitude testing in personality applications, labor psychology, industrial psychology and organizational psychology, supporting decision-making processes in educational, university and occupational matters, and sports psychology.

THEORETICAL BACKGROUND

This test was developed in compliance with the results from achievement motivation research (in compliance with motivating conditions, such as setting specific goals for the respondent, making the test performance solely dependent on the respondent giving performance feedback). Each of the three sub-tests is built around a particular motivating incentive that has proven to provide a relevant basic condition for motivating respondents' performance: motivation stemming from completing the test itself, motivation stemming from setting one's own goals, motivation stemming from competition.

ADMINISTRATION

The respondent works the test by pressing one of two buttons in rapid succession to cover as many fields as possible in a set course on the screen for a run duration of 10 seconds. Every time a button is pressed, the respondent advances through the course one field either to the right or the left. The test records and informs the respondent of how many fields she covered in the 10 second run.

TEST FORMS

There is one test form.

SCORING

The scoring is done automatically by the computer, providing values for the effort required to complete the test, for modifications in the respondent's performance stemming from setting personal goals and stemming from competition, as well as for demand level. The computer also corrects invalid reactions in the case of implausibly poor performances in individual runs. In addition, data is also given on the performance over the course of the test and on error percentage.

RELIABILITY

Internal consistency (alpha) for performance values comes to over 0.90, for demand level to between 0.80 and 0.90.

VALIDITY

For task-related effort in particular clear indications of validity were found in that there were positive correlations with very different indicators of performance (final grades in the secondary school leaving examination, educational level, intelligence test performance, and various attention evaluation tests).

NORMS

Age-specific norms are available for a sample of N=630 individuals.

TESTING TIME

The time required for the text is approximately 20 minutes (including the instruction and practice phase).
