With more application forms and CVs for an average job than ever before, managers don't need more applicants, they need screening tools to quickly identify the best ones.
More effective than a phone screen, the Core Abilities Assessment measures an individual's verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning skills - the building blocks for success in any job.
The score provides insight into someone's ability to learn and perform on the job. Core Abilities can help highlight the applicants who should advance to the next stage or interview.
Core Abilities Assessment is a timed, supervised, online test. It contains: practice questions and 6 x Verbal, 7 x Numerical and 7 x Abstract Reasoning questions (see example questions)
A scored report is automatically produced (see example report)
