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
