What tests are available?

Sometimes, you want to focus on particular aspects of cognitive ability, rather than asking candidates to complete the full cognitive ability test.

It might be that you’re hiring someone who needs to work well with numbers, or have great spatial or abstract reasoning.  And while the overall cognitive ability assessment is the best measure of overall job performance, you might want to home in on just one or two abilities.

Revelian offers the following three separate ability tests:

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Reasoning
  • Abstract Reasoning
