General cognitive ability assessments like the PI Learning Indicator are among the very best predictors of training success and job performance across all job levels and industries. When cognitive ability is used as a key data point in talent decision-making, the odds are greatly improved for selecting individuals who can catch on quick, figure things out on their own, and are able to meet or exceed performance expectations sooner.


You can determine a recommended target score, based on the role and work environment, using the Learning Indicator Target Scoring Guide. The level of job complexity and organizational factors, such as the speed of business and structure, shape the cognitive demands of the job and are considered when identifying a recommended target score.
