There are several useful ways of using testing in the workplace. These include:
Ensuring potential employees are technically proficient and ready for their new role
Identifying knowledge gaps between existing staff members
Identifying employees who are capable of increased responsibility
Supporting career guidance and progression
Demonstrating knowledge retention from training
We have many years of experience in developing practical tests which evaluate a person’s ability to understand and apply accounting knowledge.
An additional style of testing comes from the use of action learning projects. Employees are expected to design and implement projects within your organisation that demonstrate their ability to apply new skills. The benefits of this approach include:
generating a genuine return on investment from training
turning theory into practice
engaging employees with a focus on solving actual business issues
