Cognitive Assessment

Cognitive speed is one of the most important factors that impact job performance. The Cognitive assessment measures an individuals speed of problem solving and learning styles.

Cognitive Speed

Cognitive speed is one of the two most frequently cited factors that impact job performance (the other is Conscientiousness). It is critical to understand the requirements of the job when it comes to “ongoing” learning and at what “pace” in order to best match that to the individual to help create a greater chance of success.

Knowing Learning Speed

Shorten coaching and development time by understanding how quickly someone learns and if there are methods that might work better for them as an individual.

What's measured?

Cognitive

The ability to quickly and accurately solve problems. The 30 item test is broken down into 10 items that measure verbal reasoning, 15 items that measure numerical reasoning and 5 items that measure special reasoning. High scorers will learn new skills quickly and have the ability to solve more complex problems. Low scorers will take longer to acquire new skills, but once trained, may be more successful than others in handling routine tasks.
