The general cognitive ability test (also known as aptitude tests or general intelligence assessment) is one of the most powerful predictors of future work performance.
The Revelian Cognitive Ability Test (RCAT) comprises verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning questions and the resulting score reflects the person’s ability to acquire, retain, organise and apply information.
Hiring people with high cognitive ability can lead to a significant increase in efficiency and a decrease in involuntary employee turnover.
Candidates are presented with a unique set of randomly streamed questions. This is achieved through Revelian’s application of Linear-on-the-Fly (LOTF) item streaming. The questions become more difficult as the test progresses. Find out more about LOTF and cognitive ability testing.
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 has been proven to accurately predict job performance across all role types.
