highmatch Aptitude Assessment:
An analytical skills test measures a candidate’s ability to evaluate data and information to reach logical and rational decisions.
We use analytical skills every day when recognizing problems, gathering information, analyzing data, interpreting results and finding solutions.
Analytical thinking is a controlled and purposeful reflective process. Employees who remember a lot of factual knowledge are not necessarily good analytical thinkers.

HighMatch tests for analytical skills using its cognitive aptitude test offered through our Assess solution.
Our workplace psychologists conduct a benchmark study to understand what qualities are most critical for the role, analyze the qualities that top performers share, and then develop a customized Job Profile that includes personality traits, abilities, and skills.
That Job Profile is used to develop the scoring and weighting mechanism for the assessment, helping to identify whether the person is a high, medium, or low fit for the job.
