The test as a proven method for the selection of students
The employment of an ability test enables universities to identify the most suitable persons and to recruit them for their programmes. More
The TM-BASE measures competences critical for success
The TM-BASE encompasses five areas of competence that proved to be critical for success in master’s programmes of economics and social sciences:
The TM-BASE is administered as an online test at test centres outside the universities in many German cities and also abroad if needed. The organisation, administration and evaluation of the test as well as the notivication of the participants as to their scores are carried out by ITB – no effort is required on the part of the universities.

The TM-BASE is valid, high in quality and widely accepted
The evaluations testify to the TM-BASE’s high degree of measurement accuracy and validity. The correlation between test result and master’s final grade of r = .44 proves the high prognostic power of the TM-BASE (determined by N = 247 master’s graduates). The TM-BASE increases the chances of admission for applicants from universities which make high demands on their studients and/or grade them rigorously. In several surveys of the participants, the majority of respondents assessed the TM-BASE as positive. 60% of the respondents were of the opinion that TM-BASE was suitable for improving the objectiveness of the selection process.

Individual models for student selection with TM-BASE
There are numerous ways of using tests to select students. A number of models which have proven themselves in practice are described here. We will be happy to advise you on planning your selection procedure and an optimal integration of TM-BASE into this selection procedure.
The next test date is in October.
Dates, deadlines and test locations are stated here.
As of the winter semester 2016/2017 the WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management considers the results of TM-BASE for its Master of Science Programmes.
Important: If you want to apply for these programmes you need to take the TM-BASE in English.
The prognostic power of TM-BASE has been proven in a scientific study with 247 master’s graduates. The test result predicts the final grade very well: The correlation between the test result and the final grade is r = .44.
