Types of Cognitive Ability Tests
Did you know that cognitive ability test scores remain the strongest predictor of job performance?
The most important types of cognitive ability tests (also known as aptitude tests) include verbal/language reasoning, abstract/conceptual reasoning, attention to detail/mental speed, multi-tasking/attention switching, numerical/data reasoning and mechanical/spatial reasoning.
When used together (for example, when numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning are combined), they have been found to be the strongest predictor of workplace performance across all industries and job groups. This makes cognitive ability tests the most cost and time effective way of determining if a candidate is a good fit for any job. They are Web-based, with immediate results and Psychologist feedback.
Cognitive ability tests are often used with other psychometric tests such as personality and work values tests, to give a complete picture of a person.
