Use TATO to determine if job candidates or current employees have the technical aptitude and skills required to succeed in the structural building components industry.

TATO interactive online tests present a series of 50 questions in multiple choice or fill-in-the blank formats. The participant should have access to only the test, a paper and a pencil. Once the participant completes the test, usually after about an hour, the manager can retrieve immediate results on which questions were answered correctly, the amount of time spent on each question, and a comparison to national averages. Learn more about how to use TATO.
