Answers to these and many other questions can be found in the Evaluation and Test Diagnostics Interactive Facility. In a lively and interactive environment, you will learn about how evaluations proceed and what is important when planning and conducting evaluations. You’ll also be able to have a look into psychological test diagnostics: What’s the difference between a test in a magazine and a scientific test? Which tests are available for staff selection and development, and which are suitable for evaluating prevention measures in OSH? What tools are there for job analysis and which methods can be used to identify mental stressors at work?
Visitors will also learn about many new and innovative evaluation methods from a colourful ‘box’ of methods. You can try out various tests and not only learn about different methods but also something about yourself. For example, you can conduct a brief concentration test to determine how well someone can concentrate on a task. Concentration tests are often used when recruiting a person whose job requires a high level of concentration such as an air traffic controller or a professional driver. But they can also be used to study the impact of improved working conditions on concentration.
In another area you can try out different methods for assessing working conditions and workloads. These methods can determine which mental stressors are associated with a particular job. This allows the right kind of preventive measures to be put in place early on.
In addition, a test can be carried out to determine individual working ability and occupational interests. This test can be used to show how questionnaires can be created, conducted and assessed electronically.
