Cognitive Aptitude Tests
Cognitive aptitude is the single strongest predictor of future job performance. By gaining this valuable insight upfront, you can identify people who will learn more quickly and be more productive at work. From cutting-edge game-based assessments to detailed long-form tests, we’ve got your aptitude evaluation needs covered.
Success Can Be Simple
Valid cognitive aptitude or general mental ability (GMA) assessments give you a sure-fire way of knowing if your candidates will be top performers. That's because pre-employment aptitude tests evaluate job-critical traits that are pivotal to success in just about every job or industry, like problem solving, critical thinking, and attention to detail.
Including aptitude testing in your hiring process can:
- Speed up on-boarding
- Increase productivity
- Reduce turnover
On paper, a candidate with great skills, qualifications, years of experience, an impressive interview, and impeccable references can make it seem like you’ve found the perfect person for the job, right? But the truth is, finding your best candidates can be even simpler.
After analysing more than 85 years of research across 32,000 job applicants, Frank Schmidt and John Hunter found that the factors we typically depend on aren’t a reliable way to predict on-the-job-performance. They determined that scientifically developed and validated cognitive ability assessments were twice as predictive as job interviews, three times as predictive as experience, and four times as predictive as education level. Including robust cognitive ability assessments is a simple way to make more informed talent decisions.
