Blueprint Reading Assessment


Blueprint Reading Assessment


This test covers the test taker's knowledge of non-specific-trade blueprint reading and blueprint symbols. It has a general focus on the construction trades and the prints typically associated with construction projects. It contains illustrations that primarily refer to residential construction projects that allow test takers to be assessed on their ability to visually understand the layout and symbols associated with residential construction drawings. It also evaluates the test taker's comprehension of some line types used on construction drawings. The test is appropriate for test takers whose primary tasks include the construction and/or maintenance of residential structures that require frequent referral to a set of prints reflecting the desired outcome of the architect or engineer.

Assessments for Home Inspection Skills and Finish Carpentry are also available.
