AMCAT-IT has demonstrated exceptional predictive power in technical trainability, soft skill learnability and on-job success in IT roles. Today AMCAT-IT has been successfully deployed by several of the largest IT product and IT services companies in India.
AMCAT IT is a suite of language, aptitude and domain assessments. These adaptive and standardized assessment modules help us ensure reliable evaluation and strong differentiation between trainable and unemployable talent.
AMCAT IT includes:
We recommend a combination of these plug-and-play modules depending on the job role and targeted supply. AMCAT IT has been used successfully to hire fresh talent for software engineering, software testing, IT infrastructure management and for a variety of lateral roles.
The capability to hire trainable candidates i.e. to pick raw talent and craft them into a successful IT professional through internal training is the key to success for any entry level hiring program. For being able to ensure 100% training success one needs to hire the right candidates. Estimates predict each training failure costs the company anywhere between 1.5 to 2.5 times the annual compensation.
Being able to predict actual job performance is the hallmark of Aspiring Minds talent evaluation solutions. With a dearth of trained talent, IT companies look forward to both minimal thresholds of knowledge and trainability.
IT professional's job success depends on both technical competence and soft skills. Technically competent professionals are expected to be good at problem solving and programming skills. The candidate’s soft-skills determine the ability to comprehend instructions, plan his tasks and communicate with clients and colleagues.
AMCAT-IT® evaluates candidates across competencies required to succeed in the IT industry – Language, Aptitude and Domain Knowledge.
Aspiring Minds Research Cell's studies show that AMCAT English and AMCAT Logical Ability predict soft skill trainability with a high correlation, while Logical and Quantitative Ability correlate with technical training performance. Computer Programming Principles has a strong weight-age in predicting technical training when the training is short. Using the right benchmark on AMCAT modules, case studies demonstrated reduction in training failures by over 80%.
