Trade Aptitude Test Battery (TRAT)

J.W. von Mollendorf & J.J. Taljaard

The TRAT was compiled with a view to the selection of prospective learners with a Grade 8 to 10 qualification, for admission to technical institutes and FET colleges as well as to provide an indication of the suitability of a candidate to successfully complete training in a particular trade field.

The battery consists of 16 tests of the pencil and paper type, namely:

  • Dexterity;
  • Co-ordination;
  • Patterns;
  • Components;
  • Classification;
  • Assembly;
  • Computations;
  • Inspection;
  • Graphs;
  • Mechanical Insight;
  • Mathematics;
  • Spatial Perception (2-D);
  • Vocabulary;
  • Figure Series;
  • Woordeskat and
  • Spatial Perception (3-D).

The various tests provide inter alia measures of a testee’s hand-eye co-ordination, drawing ability, analytical perceptual ability, non-verbal reasoning ability, ability to assemble mechanical components, mathematical ability, ability to interpret graphs in general, mechanical insight, spatial perceptual ability, English vocabulary and Afrikaanse woordeskat.


Stanines (jointly for Grades 8 to 10) were established for Black learners in schools from the erstwhile Department of Education and Training.
