Business Information Technology Admissions Assessment

The Business Information Technology program requires the successful completion of the Computer Programmer Aptitude Battery (CPAB) test as part of its admission requirements.

This multiple choice test consists of three sub-tests. Each of these sub-tests is very strictly timed. No dictionaries, calculators or scrap paper are allowed. These sub-tests measure the following skills and aptitudes:

  • Reasoning: a test of ability to translate ideas and operations from word problems into mathematical notations.
  • Number Ability: a test of facility in using numbers; ability to quickly estimate reasonable answers to computations.
  • Diagramming: a test of ability to analyze a problem and order the steps for solution in a logical sequence.
