The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) has developed a new series of four online self-assessment quizzes to help individuals evaluate their automotive technical knowledge. The new product, called TechQuiz, is quick, convenient and useful for both new and experienced technicians.
Each of these quizzes is designed to measure technical knowledge at three levels:
2) Maintenance; and
3) Diagnosis and repair.
This evaluation can help individuals prepare for the ASE certification tests, or help identify areas needing improvement through targeted training. Since these are not pass/fail tests, users get a score report with details on how they did in each area. Each test has 40 questions.
There are four different quizzes:
• Gasoline Engines;
• Undercar; and
• Electrical/Electronic Systems and HVAC.
Perhaps the greatest value of the TechQuiz product is the opportunity to experience questions asked in the ASE style. Although the quizzes are not a certification, they have been developed with the same process, rigor and high level of quality for which ASE is noted. The quizzes can be taken multiple times to get an idea of progress in acquiring knowledge and can be taken in the privacy of one’s own home if desired. The results can also be stored for later reference and easily retrieved or kept in a personal portfolio. For more information, visit the ASE website at www.ase.com.
The new self-assessment quizzes are available through the ASE Campus online at www.asecampus.com. You can also get to the ASE Campus by going to the ASE website at www.ase.com and clicking on the ASE Campus tab. Once there, simply create a profile and you can immediately access the TechQuiz self-assessments 24/7. Each quiz costs $12.50.
