Uncover the secret to hiring smarter people
Measure cognitive ability
Assess general cognitive ability— also known as general mental ability (GMA) or aptitude.
Predict how well someone will acquire, organise, retain and apply information on the job.
Candidates complete up to 51 verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning questions.
The Cognitive Ability Test is timed and takes 20 minutes to complete.
A person’s cognitive ability is a powerful predictor of their future work performance and how suitable they are for the job.
More than 100 years of research has clearly shown cognitive ability to be the single most powerful predictor of performance on the job, across all roles, industries and management levels.
This is because a person’s cognitive ability reflects how well they will acquire, organise, retain and apply information on the job. People with high levels of cognitive ability can:
Investing in cognitive ability testing empowers you, as a hiring manager, recruiter or business owner, to make clever decisions when filing positions. This means your business will have a greater chance of increasing overall performance and decreasing involuntary employee turnover.
Be smart about the intelligence of your people
Each test includes a variety of questions, delivered via randomised streaming.
Candidates will complete a set of up to 51 questions that measure their verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning ability. The questions become increasingly more difficult as the assessment progresses, as they are delivered using our Linear-On-the-Fly-Testing (LOFT) randomised question streaming method. This means that no two candidates will ever receive the same questions, giving you confidence in their individual results.
12-month no re-sit policy.
We don’t allow candidates to sit the same test within 12 months, so no one has the advantage of practising. This means you can be sure the results from every candidate are accurate, reliable and can be compared fairly.
In the pantheon of 31 personnel measures... [general cognitive ability] occupies a special place for several reasons. First, it has the highest validity and lowest application cost. Second, the research evidence for the validity of [cognitive ability] measures for predicting job performance is stronger than that for any other method. Third, [cognitive ability] has been shown to be the best available predictor of job-related learning. Fourth, the theoretical foundation of [cognitive ability] is stronger than for any other personnel measure.
Boost your organisation’s cognitive ability
The reports indicate each candidate’s level of overall cognitive ability.
Although our assessments have been developed and reviewed by registered psychologists, our reports are designed for easy interpretation by managers.
You’ll receive a position report that includes a ranked list of candidates based on their assessment results, which makes it quick and easy to identify who to progress to the next round in your recruitment process.
For further insight you’ll also receive an individual report for each candidate that outlines their performance.
Comparison groups give results meaning and context.
On its own, a candidate’s assessment score doesn’t give you much information about how they compare to other candidates, your own employees, or a relevant industry or job level cohort.
For this reason, you can select from a number of different comparison groups to give you a clearer picture of how each candidate stacks up against others. For Revelian Express customers, all candidates will be compared to a general comparison group. For our Enterprise customers, you can choose up to three of the following groups:
