The Wiesen Test of Mechanical Aptitude (WTMA) is an assessment designed to measure an individual’s mechanical aptitude, which can be an important factor in job performance for certain roles. This test is often used by employers in the hiring process, particularly for positions that require a basic understanding of mechanical operations and principles.

Key Features of the WTMA:

  1. Content: The test typically includes questions related to various mechanical concepts such as levers, pulleys, gears, simple electrical circuits, and tools. It assesses the ability to understand and apply mechanical principles rather than to recall facts or perform extensive calculations.
  2. Format: The WTMA is usually a multiple-choice test and can be administered either on paper or online. It consists of a series of illustrations, each followed by a question and several answer choices.
  3. Duration: The test is timed, with participants typically given around 30 minutes to complete it. However, the exact time may vary depending on the version of the test.
  4. Purpose: Employers use it to predict job performance in roles such as maintenance workers, mechanics, repair technicians, and other trades where mechanical understanding is important.
  5. Preparation: While some natural mechanical inclination can be helpful, candidates can prepare for the WTMA by familiarizing themselves with basic mechanical concepts and practicing with sample questions or similar aptitude tests.
  6. Scoring: The test is scored based on the number of correct answers. There is usually no penalty for guessing, so it’s advisable to answer every question.

The WTMA consists of 60 multiple-choice questions to be completed within a 30-minute time limit.

The WTMA covers a variety of mechanical and physical concepts, including:

  • Basic machinery concepts
  • Motion of objects
  • Gravity and center of gravity
  • Thermal conduction
  • Basics of electricity and electronics
  • Basic physical properties of materials

Some examples of WTMA questions include:

  1. Mechanics – Force and Moment Equilibrium: This section may involve questions like comparing weights on different sides of a fulcrum to determine which side is heavier or lighter based on the position of the fulcrum and the weights​​.
  2. Mechanics – Velocity – Inertia and Equilibrium: Questions in this category might involve determining the movement of objects under certain conditions, such as which of two horses on a merry-go-round will move up and down as well as forward​​.
  3. Mechanics – Fluids – Flow and Volume: This could involve comparing the flow of water through different pipes or tanks, taking into account factors like the size and shape of the openings and the tanks​​.
  4. Thermodynamics: An example is determining which container will keep ice cream cold longer, based on the surface area to volume ratio of the containers​​.
  5. Electricity – Concepts and Components: Questions might ask about the properties of different materials as insulators or conductors, or about units of measurement in electricity​
