Cognitive Ability Test

Personality Test

The PeopleClues® Cognitive Ability Test measures an individuals speed of problem solving and learning styles

We all talk about identifying and hiring "Talent", but what makes a candidate talented? Personality (their preferred behavioural approach to work) is one key element. The second key element is ability.

Research confirms what you probably already knew - the best predictor for job performance is cognitive ability. Cognitive ability is one of the two most frequently cited factors that impact job performance (the other is Conscientiousness, measured by the PeopleClues Personality Assessment).

The PeopleClues Cognitive Ability Tests assess how quickly the candidate will:

  1. adapt to new changes
  2. grasp new concepts
  3. see new opportunities

It is a measure of how well people can solve problems, process information and learn new things.

The Right Level Of Ability To Do The Job

It is critical to understand the requirements of the job when it comes to ongoing learning, and at what pace, in order to best match that to the individual to help create a greater chance of success.

You want all of your employees to have the right level of ability that fits their job. Depending on the role, you’ll want to know if a candidate is a strong problem solver, a mathematical genius, or capable of intense focus and intellectual challenge. Each of these elements you need to know to find the right candidate for the job.
