What Is Cognitive Ability Testing And What Does It Measure?

Cognitive ability tests are usually used by organisations during their recruitment process to evaluate the candidate’s cognitive functions.

Cognitive ability tests assess an individual’s abilities that are usually involved in thinking, such as:

  • Reasoning
  • Perception,
  • Memory,
  • verbal ability
  • mathematical ability
  • Problem-solving

Implementing the cognitive ability testing practice during the recruitment process, helps employers make more informed decisions and better candidate choices.

Sometimes a CV is not enough to have an idea of whether or not a candidate is appropriate for the vacant position. Performing this kind of test gives a deeper understanding of their actual potential at the moment.
