Cognitive Ability Test
Cognitive ability tests (aptitude tests, general intelligence assessments) are one of the most powerful predictors of future work performance.
Cognitive ability tests measure verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning and the resulting score reflects the person's ability to acquire, retain, organise and apply information.
- Develop a greater knowledge of the job, more quickly
- Make effective decisions
- Successfully reason and solve problems and
- Respond appropriately to new or complex situations.
Hiring people with high cognitive ability leads to a significant increase in efficiency and a decrease in involuntary employee turnover.
Revelian’s Cognitive Ability Test consists of 51 questions, which require applicants to process either verbal, numeric or abstract information to answer the question correctly. Click here to see some example questions.
The questions become more difficult as the test progresses and range in difficulty from those that 97% of people answer correctly to questions that only 2% answer correctly.
This broad range of question types and difficulty levels means that the Revelian Cognitive Ability Test provides a comprehensive assessment of general cognitive ability. As candidates' scores are compared to relevant normative groups, this test accurately predicts job performance across all role types.
