PI Cognitive Assessment

Cognitive ability is the main predictor of job performance

How can you reliably determine if an individual with the right training and qualification will be successful in a role?

The PI Cognitive Assessment™ is a timed assessment which measures a person’s general cognitive ability. It objectively predicts how quickly a person learns and processes new and complex information, how easily they can be trained and how adaptable they are in any role. This is a strong indicator of their likely on-the-job performance.

The assessment is accessible online and contains 50 multiple-choice questions that are dynamically selected from a balanced pool of verbal, numerical and abstract items. It takes just 12 minutes to complete and removes the need for a lengthy assessment process.

When the candidate has completed the questionnaire, their cognitive score is instantly available in a format that allows you to easily compare candidates with each other and against a norm group.
