Introduction:

Disclaimer: This template was designed to supplement our article on career aptitude tests.

It is not intended to be a working aptitude test; rather, it is intended to provide a basic structure that you can use to build your own working aptitude tests.

For instructions on how to get this working, see our aptitude test article.

This test template is based on the OpenPsychometrics framework for The Big Five Personality Test.
