Research & Development

The Meter Reader Aptitude Battery (MRAB) is used in order to select candidates who will be responsible for reading company meters as well as recording data. The MRAB resulted from comprehensive research, funded by EEI. In their research initiatives, they found that the tests making up the battery are in fact relevant to meter reader positions and can predict the probability of candidate success. 


MRAB Test Battery

The MRAB is used in order to select candidates who will be responsible for reading company meters as well as recording data. The entire battery takes less than 20 minutes and is split into two different tests: 

  1. Using Tables (85 samples/6 minutes)
    This test assesses the candidate's ability to quickly and accurately obtain information from a number table. The test taker is presented with 85 items and is allotted 6 minutes to complete the test.
  2. Coding (18 samples/5 minutes)
    This test assesses the candidate's ability to correctly assign code numbers to data by using an already existing coding scheme. The test taker is presented with 18 items and is allotted 5 minutes to complete this portion of the battery.

MRAB Scoring

The Using Tables and Coding scores are combined into one overall score. This score reflects the candidate's perceptual speed, reasoning ability, and ability to retain information, all of which are relevant to job performance.
