Basic-check can be considered an orientation tool that indicates whether or not a pupil satisfies the required conditions for a specific apprenticeship. While the tool is independent of the different professions, interpretation of the results is profession-specific. The questions, answered online, are designed to help evaluate linguistic, mathematical and practical knowledge as well as a pupil’s capacity in spatial visualisation. The questions cover abilities in spatial representation, logic, practical and numeric (algebra, geometric) as well as linguistic reflexion (text comprehension), and imagination.
While basic-check is conceived as an orientation tool, it does not substitute official scholar results which are the final determinant of access to a particular apprenticeship.
