Cognitive Assessments

Do you wish that you could predict whether a candidate is likely to be successful in a specific role?


Did you know that cognitive ability is the main predictor of job performance?


Identifying a candidate’s potential for future success in a role was traditionally based on interviews and intuition rather than concrete evidence.

Now, however, it is possible for you to gain a reliable insight into how an individual’s cognitive ability might impact on their job performance without the need for a lengthy assessment process.

The timed PI Cognitive Assessment measures a person’s general cognitive ability in just 12 minutes whilst providing in-depth information on a person's likely success in their role.

The Predictive Index Cognitive Assessment™

The PI Cognitive Assessment™ measures the ability and pace at which a person will respond to new information, changing situations and problems in the workplace. Gain confidence that your new employee will grasp new information quickly and can meet or exceed expectations.

This is a scientifically validated method of measuring general mental ability. The broad-based online survey is based on numerical, verbal and abstract reasoning. The test consists of 50 multiple-choice questions which are a balanced mix of question types and difficulty levels designed to address the perception and processing skills of the candidate.

The assessment is available in more than 70 languages and takes only 12 minutes to complete. When the candidate has completed the questionnaire their score is calculated instantly and is immediately accessible by the test administrator.

The results are presented in a user-friendly format allowing you to compare candidates objectively. This will make your recruitment process quicker, more cost effective and reliable.

Having a better idea of your candidate’s learning capabilities and their ability to adapt to new challenges will help to streamline the selection, on-boarding and training of a new employee or manager.
