The Power of Cognitive Tests

Measuring the right cognitive skills improves performance by over 35%

Logical Ability
This test of logical ability assesses a candidate's deductive and inductive reasoning skills.
It measures one's ability to make inferences, conclusions and decide actions based on text, data, and symbols. It also tests a person's ability to derive and apply general rules based on one or more examples of the rule's application.
Critical Reasoning
The test measures the ability to critically reason out information.
This requires abilities in information synthesis, identify objective vs. subjective information, identify assumptions, understand the difference between correlation and causality, and differentiate necessary and sufficient information and syllogistic reasoning.
Information Gathering and Synthesis
This test measures the ability to interpret information in form of text, tables, and charts.
It evaluates a candidate's ability to gather relevant information, classify data and make rule-based decisions.
Quantitative Ability
Evaluates a candidate's ability to solve real-world problems using mathematical operations
It tests the candidate's understanding and application of concepts such as ratios, proportions, simple interest and discounts. The advanced version of the test includes advanced math topics in logarithms, probability, and permutation-combination relevant for engineering and IT jobs.
