RAVEN’S offers information about someone’s capacity for analysing and solving problems, cognitive thinking, abstract reasoning, and the ability to learn. It is widely used within graduate recruitment, plus for roles across multiple sectors.

APM-III allows assessors to easily administer the online tests to any number of test takers for unsupervised remote completion.
