ABOUT THE CRITERION COGNITIVE ABILITY TESTS

Cognitive ability or aptitude tests are an objective way of measuring an individual’s performance on different work related tasks or situations. They tap into reasoning skills and are therefore a measure of potential, rather than academic performance or stored knowledge.

They provide employers with an indication of how people will perform in a work setting and so are frequently used to decide whether a candidate has the baseline cognitive ‘firepower’ necessary to be successful in the role.

We provide the following coginitive ability tests: 

  • Numerical 
  • Verbal
  • Abstract
  • Mechanical
  • Checking 

When used alongside other psychometrics, such as personality questionnaires or scenario based tests, employers are able to build up a holistic picture of how the individual would behave in the role.
