Walden was one of the early pioneers in the field of testing for programming, system analysis and computer operations aptitude. In fact, over the course of more than 40 years we’ve continued to innovate and adapt to the growing needs of the rapidly changing world of information technology and the digital revolution. And we’ve leveraged our expertise developed in I.T. to provide testing for non-technical business employment as well.
Because our success is due to an approach that ensures that our test content is designed to simulate the aptitudes required on the job, HR managers have relied upon our approach to provide insight into the performance potential of individual candidates that is not possible to gain solely from resumes, reference-checking or interviews.

What we test for: Innate Abilities and Traits
Walden aptitude tests assess inborn talents and thought processes pertinent to each specific job.
We believe that aptitude testing is an integral and essential part of the hiring process because simply put, if a candidate performs well on our tests there is a high likelihood they will also excel on the job.
What you get when you use our tests
Walden provides our clients with an easy-to-administer aptitude test that in most cases take 60 minutes to complete. Tests may be taken online or on paper. In the case of online tests, the results are received via email usually within 5 minutes of completion.
The report provides a percentage test score, a rating that grades the candidate’s aptitude (above average to below average) and a recommendation and evaluation of the candidate’s potential for success.

After over 40 years testing hundreds of thousands of applicants in a variety of jobs we are confident our tests help our clients hire the best and avoid the costs incurred with a bad hire.
To prove to clients who are new to aptitude testing, we are offering a free test drive. Have one of your employees take our test. Then compare their level of job performance will relate to their test results.
Walden tests are different from other today because they:
are high-level, professional aptitude/skills tests.
are designed to assess the ability of skilled people.
generally simulate what a person does on the job, are difficult and require sustained effort.
are independent of specific knowledge, software or training, and are highly job specific.
are much more sophisticated and intricate than other aptitude tests.
will tell you how well a person will do on the job, not how much technical knowledge they have.
Please forward this note to your scoring manager; I got his voice mail message for the candidate I asked about and very much appreciate his response. He answered my questions completely. In general, you folks at Walden are tremendous, and worth every dime you're paid! (Maybe even more?) Thanks very much for your rapid and full responses to our questions, and turnaround time scoring the assessments, and generally pleasant "bedside manner". You're great service providers. It looks like we can expect our second programmer development effort to go as well as the first one did, and for both I believe the assessment gets us over the biggest hurdle.

We have received excellent customer service from the people at Walden. They assure that all information and scores are confidential. They also are flexible! We have used several different methods in receiving booklets and test scores. Each time, the information has been timely. They are very easy to get in touch with and return phone calls promptly. I have been very impressed with their friendliness and professionalism.
