MultiCraft Diagnostic Test – A and B

August 31

RCJS MultiCraft Diagnostic Test Forms A and B (alternate equivalent) were developed in 2017 as a solution for companies looking to diagnose training weaknesses within their organizations. The 128-item tests were devised based on data from Ramsay Corporation’s 153-item Maintest, which has been taken by more than 17,000 applicants and employed workers. Three psychologists and an electrical engineer reviewed the original and updated forms of Maintest. The MultiCraft Diagnostic Test consists of 16 categories, each with 8 questions. Questions were chosen based upon difficulty, point biserial correlation, and relevance to the category, as well as currency. The test categories are: Prints and Schematics; Power Transmission; Lubrication; Hydraulics; Pneumatics; Pumps and Piping; Building Maintenance; Hand and Power Tools; Fabrication; Electrical Applications; Motors and Controls; Process Control and Sensors; Test Instruments; PLCs and Networking; Electronics and Instrumentation; and Electrical Facilities Maintenance. Both forms are available as paper tests and as online tests.

The psychologist also added 10 questions in the areas of levels and planes, resulting in an 80-item test. Categories included are: Mathematics; Framing, Walls and Floors; Scaffolds, Ladders, and Rigging; Finishing, Trim, Repair, and Fabrication; and Tools, Materials, and Equipment.
