## The Applied Technology Assessment

Working with machines and equipment means understanding how to best use them to solve problems. The Applied Technology assessment measures basic principles and skills in four areas of technology: electricity, mechanics, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics. With a focus on reasoning, not math, examinees solve problems without calculations or formulas.

Individuals that use the applied technology skill can:

- Analyze a problem by identifying the problem and its parts.
- Decide which parts of a problem are important.
- Decide on the order to follow when dealing with the parts of the problem.
- Apply existing tools, materials, or methods to new situations.

**What the Applied Technology Assessment Measures**

There are four levels of difficulty. Level 3 is the least complex, and Level 6 is the most complex. The levels build on each other, each incorporating the skills assessed at the previous levels. For example, Level 5 includes the skills used at Levels 3, 4, and 5. Individual problems may involve only one area of technology, but each skill level requires individuals to know the basic principles of all four areas at that skill level.
