Ability Test

A cognitive ability test evaluates a person’s ability to think and solve problems. 

A Cognitive Ability Test in the Workplace

There is a strong consensus among I/O psychologists that cognitive ability is the single best predictor of job performance, and it is common to use cognitive tests for selection purposes.

Our Assess solution can help identify skills related to cognitive ability, or if you are interested in testing specifically for cognitive ability, our Create solution can do that for you.

By measuring a candidate’s cognitive ability, employers better understand their ability to:

  • Think abstractly
  • Comprehend concepts
  • Learn from experience
  • Apply new information
  • Adapt to new situations
  • Find solutions to problems

HighMatch creates custom job profiles which identify the personality traits, cognitive abilities and the skills required for success in the role and at your company.

Role Applicability

Cognitive ability is predictive of job performance across all domains because it predicts learning and problem-solving. The ability to acquire job knowledge is impacted by one’s ability, and one’s command of job knowledge affects job performance.

Employees with higher cognitive ability tend to adjust better to new tasks with their ability to learn and apply new information. Complex jobs that involve a high degree of independent decision-making and problem-solving require a high level of cognitive ability.

HighMatch candidate reports make it crystal clear if candidates possess the innate talents needed to succeed in the job defined by your organization. Our Create solution provides personalized assessments tailored specifically to your organization’s needs.

Below is a list of positions that require different types of cognitive abilities:

  • Pharmacy technicians: pharmacy technicians need to pay attention to detail to fill prescriptions accurately and rely on memory to recall potential side effects.
  • Personal financial advisors: financial advisors need to analyze data, recognize trends, and predict market changes
  • Software Engineers: software engineers need to concentrate for long periods of time, have working knowledge of programming languages, and be able to solve problems creatively
  • Accountants: an accountant needs to keep track of information in a logical and organized way

The HighMatch Cognitive Ability Test

HighMatch tests for cognitive ability 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 traits, aptitudes, and hard 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.
