Does UMAT coaching work?

Psychometric tests such as UMAT are new in Australia, but in the US numerous such tests have been in use for nearly a century. Coaching organisations are therefore well established. The officials at the Educational Testing Service (ETS) at Princeton (the equivalent of ACER) say that they have no objection to the coaching because what is important is that students learn the skills that are tested, whether it is at school, university or at a coaching college.

It is to be expected that ACER would claim that the UMAT is a test that is not susceptible to coaching in an attempt to enhance its reliability and validity. However, there is no test that cannot be coached for. Coaching helps lift an individual’s performance in all competitions: sporting or intellectual.

Coaching certainly improves a person’s ability to some degree – or at least a person’s ability to do better in tests that purport to assess that ability – just as much as coaching helps even elite athletes and sporting stars perform better on that crucial day in competitions that aim to test their inherent ability.
