Sample Ability Tests

Test 1 – Score-Based

Your end result will be determined by each answer your choose.

Test 2 – Verify Critical Reasoning

This test is designed to find out how well you are able to evaluate the logic of various kinds of arguments. It consists of a series of passages, each of which followed by several statements. Your task is to evaluate each statement and decide whether it is true or untrue, or whether there is insufficient information to make a judgement.

Test 3 – Numerical Critical Reasoning

This test is designed to measure your ability to understand and reason with numerical data. In order to better simulate job situations, the use of a calculator is allowed. You are asked to use the facts and figures presented in various statistical tables to answer questions designed to asses your skills of numerical evaluation.

Practical Guides to Different Assessment Types

As they say, practice makes perfect – and if you are a visual learner, you may find these videos from best-selling author and career coach Richard McMunn to be quite helpful in completing various types of job assessments. Try your hand at practicing some of the questions he presents in these videos, and you’ll be all the more prepared for your next candidate assessment.

Verify Critical Reasoning

Verify Critical Reasoning tests explore one’s ability to navigate arguments logically to make objective decisions. You could be tasked with differentiating between strong and weak arguments, identifying when assumptions have been made, deducing answers based on the facts provided, interpreting whether a given conclusion is logical, or inferencing conclusions based on the information in the passage. The skills measured by this assessment are especially useful in predicting how you will analyse scenarios, evaluate arguments, and draw conclusions from data when you are on the job. Give it a try with the video below!

Numerical Critical Reasoning

Numerical Critical Reasoning tests are a bit different than standard Numerical Reasoning tests. The “critical” portion measures not only your ability to complete various types of maths, but also to deduce conclusions from the extensive information you are presented with. These more complex problems might manifest in the form of bars, graphs, or charts, and they often take multiple steps to solve. To tackle Numerical Critical Reasoning problems you need to be able to work quickly and efficiently under pressure, which often takes practice to master. In a job setting these skills are vital at every experience level, whether it be graduate positions or upper management. Why not begin with a few tester questions below?

Inductive Reasoning

Inductive Reasoning assessments measure your general mental abilities through identifying patterns and consistencies among various images and predicting what is next in the sequence. These types of tests are popular in application processes because they are believed to be great predictors of job performance and your ability to complete work activities to a high standard. Inductive Reasoning tests also level the playing field, as no prior knowledge is needed to achieve a high score. However, this does not mean you are guaranteed to score highly on your first try – like any test, Inductive Reasoning requires practice to improve your response time and familiarise yourself with various methods. Try out some examples with the video below.
