THE PI COGNITIVE ASSESSMENT

Predict natural learning ability and job performance.

What is the PI Cognitive Assessment?

Did you know that cognitive ability is the number one predictor of job performance? The timed PI Cognitive AssessmentTM is a cognitive ability test for employment. This assessment measures a person’s general mental ability and capacity for critical thinking. In just 12 minutes you’ll have more information about someone’s likelihood of success and job performance than you would after a one-hour interview or standard aptitude test.

How does the PI Cognitive Assessment work?

Assessment takers get 50 problems to solve—and they’re tasked with completing as many as they can in 12 minutes. The resulting score indicates their ability to process complex information and their capacity to deal with the cognitive demands of a given position. Some assessment tests might gauge a candidate’s general mental ability or numerical reasoning, but not both. With the PI Cognitive Assessment you’ll always know if a candidate has the problem-solving abilities for the job.

What does the PI Cognitive Assessment measure?

The PI Cognitive Assessment consists of 50 multiple-choice questions from three cognitive ability categories (verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning) and nine subcategories. Essentially, it assesses the rate at which a person can learn—rapid knowledge acquisition. If change is a constant in your organization, pay special attention to cognitive ability.

More than personality tests, they measure verbal reasoning, cognitive skills, and critical thinking. Armed with this data, along with more quantitative criteria, your business can improve its hiring process and make more scientific hiring decisions. Unlike a standard aptitude test, a cognitive assessment combined with behavioral data can provide true indicators of a candidate’s job performance.
