Assessments as Unique As You

Most vendors believe in a one-size-fits-all approach for aptitude testing, where similar questions are asked regardless of the unique needs of your specific roles.


Every client relationship starts with our Workplace Psychologists understanding your challenges, goals, and the unique elements of your roles and company culture.

We then create a personalized assessment, built to only measure candidates against the abilities that matter most at a specific job level using your preferred language.

what abilities matter most to your organization?

While HighMatch offers truly personalized assessments uniquely tailored for every client and job level, we have a number of pre-built, independently validated components for the most requested cognitive abilities, including:

Critical Thinking

Measures ability to make accurate observations, effectively recognize patterns, and extend their observations to draw conclusions

Numerical Reasoning

Measures a candidate’s numerical aptitude and their ability to interpret, analyze, calculate, and draw conclusions using numbers and data


Measures a candidate’s ability to hold, manipulate, and think about three dimensions in one’s mind

insights across the hiring cycle

Often clients want to apply elements of an employment aptitude test at different hiring stages, for instance screening warehouse applicants for spatial reasoning prior to bringing them in for an interview.

HighMatch has a suite of assessment products aligned to the hiring cycle which can be used to assess different cognitive and behavioral qualities at different stages.
