Psychometrics

Achievement Test
An achievement test is designed to measure a person's level of skill, accomplishment,
or knowledge in a specific area. Some examples of achievement tests include:

A math exam covering the latest chapter in your book


A test in your social psychology class
A comprehensive final in your Spanish class
A skills demonstration in your martial arts class

Each of these tests is designed to assess how much you know at a specific point in time
about a certain topic. Achievement tests are not used to determine what you are
capable of; they are designed to evaluate what you know and your level of skill at the
given moment.
Achievement tests are often used in educational and training settings. In schools, for
example, achievements tests are frequently used to determine the level of education for
which students might be prepared. Students might take such a test to determine if they
are ready to enter into a particular grade level or if they are ready to pass of a particular
subject or grade level and move on to the next.

for them.
