Cognitive ability assessments identify the candidates with the right abilities and potential to succeed in the role

The ability to solve complex problems, make decisions, and use sound reasoning are among the most critical competencies needed by today’s workers. Cognitive ability assessments are robust tools that reveal an individual’s reasoning, logic, and ability to work with information and can accurately predict potential for success.

SHL’s cognitive ability assessments comprise multiple-choice items that measure various mental abilities, such as verbal and numerical ability, reasoning ability, and reading comprehension. Some cognitive ability assessments measure distinct abilities (e.g., verbal, numerical), while others measure a combination of different abilities to provide a measure of general mental ability.
