The Verify Numerical Ability Test measures candidates’ ability to work with numbers and use appropriate mathematics in different situations. This test requires candidates to solve word problems, perform numerical calculations, and interpret data in tables and graphs.

This test is especially relevant where the following tasks are critical aspects of the job or role:

  • Understanding relevant data in tables and charts
  • Quickly and accurately using basic mathematical concepts to analyze data
  • Drawing the appropriate conclusions based on mathematical analyses

The Verify Inductive Reasoning Test measures candidates’ ability to draw inferences from, and understand relationships between, various concepts. Tasks include working out the pattern in a set of images and identifying the correct next image from the given options.

This test is especially relevant where the following tasks are critical aspects of the job or role:

  • Dealing with new concepts and approaches
  • Answering questions of “why” and “how”
  • Resolving complex and ambiguous problems

The Verify Deductive Reasoning Test measures candidates’ ability to draw logical conclusions based on information provided, identify the strengths and weaknesses of an argument, and complete scenarios using incomplete information. Tasks include reading statements and determining which of the options cannot be true or must be true.

This test is especially relevant where the following tasks are critical aspects of the job:

  • Evaluating arguments
  • Analyzing scenarios
  • Drawing conclusions from data

Verify G+ measures general mental ability, or G, and effectively measures candidates’ problem-solving and critical reasoning capabilities. Verify G+ uses a cutting-edge approach to measuring multiple abilities in a minimal amount of time. Based on advances in psychometrics, Verify G+ leverages the strong relationship between abilities to measure three types of abilities—deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning and numerical ability—in the time it would take to measure two.

The test administers 30 items in 36 minutes and generates accurate assessments of the three specific abilities, producing individual test score results and a score for G.

The Verify Calculation Test measures candidates’ ability to add, subtract, divide, and otherwise manipulate numbers quickly and accurately, which is critical to many workplace tasks such as estimation, auditing, and checking.

The test is relevant to entry-level, administrative, and clerical roles, as well as apprenticeships, internships, and recent graduates, where the following tasks are critical aspects of the job:

  • Calculating and checking figures
  • Using calculators and computers for daily calculations
  • Balancing currency, coin, and checks in a cash drawer
  • Issuing refunds, receipts, and change
  • Quoting prices, credit terms, and other bid specifications

The Verify Verbal Ability Test measures candidates’ ability to extract relevant information from written sources and make objective judgments based on that information. It indicates how an individual will perform when working with reports, correspondence, instructions, and research information.

The test emphasizes understanding, using, and evaluating verbal information rather than vocabulary, spelling, or grammar.

The Verify Verbal Ability Test is adaptive and covers a broad range of difficulty levels, making it appropriate for jobs at multiple levels. This test is relevant when the following tasks are critical aspects of the job or role:

  • Understanding reports and documents
  • Following written instructions
  • Preparing written documents

The Verify Mechanical Comprehension Test measures candidates’ ability to understand basic mechanical principles and apply them to devices such as gears, levers, and simple structures. This ability is important whenever equipment, hardware, or machinery is being designed, installed, or maintained. This test is therefore relevant where the following tasks are critical aspects of the job:

  • Understanding or designing the operation of machine components
  • Operating mechanical devices
  • Maintaining and repairing machinery

The Verify Checking Test measures candidates’ ability to compare information quickly and accurately in a clerical environment.

This test is particularly useful in assessing an individual’s potential for a role that requires perceptual speed and high standards for maintaining quality.
