This GD&T test evaluates a candidate’s ability to understand drawings using the language of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing. It evaluates the applicant’s knowledge of GD&T principles, concepts, and practices with the current ASME Y14.5 Standards.

Mechanical Engineers, Aerospace Engineers, Product Development Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, Quality Inspectors, Electrical Engineers, Drafters, CAD Engineers, Mechanical Design Engineers.
The Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T) language comprises symbols and standards that have been developed and are used by both engineers and manufacturers in order to describe a product and easily communicate among the different people and entities working together to bring something into production. This screening test follows the rules of GD&T as described in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Y14.5.
The test assesses candidates' knowledge and practical skills in using the principles, concepts, and best practices of GD&T. It evaluates candidates in the fundamentals and symbology of GD&T, datum referencing, and the different types of geometric tolerances. Different questions test the candidates' understanding of datums and features, GD&T symbols, the feature control frame, and material condition modifiers, among other things.
Candidates who perform well on this test have not only a strong GD&T knowledge but also the experience needed to apply that knowledge in practical work-related situations. These candidates can read designs correctly, interpret and communicate product needs accurately, and make decisions that move production forward.

TestGorilla’s tests are created by subject matter experts. We assess potential subject-matter experts based on their knowledge, ability, and reputation. Before being published, each test is peer-reviewed by another expert, then calibrated using hundreds of test takers with relevant experience in the subject. Our feedback mechanisms and unique algorithms allow our subject-matter experts to constantly improve their tests.
TestGorilla helps me to assess engineers rapidly. Creating assessments for different positions is easy due to pre-existing templates. You can create an assessment in less than 2 minutes. The interface is intuitive and it’s easy to visualize results per assessment.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.
The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.
For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.
I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.
For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
