Abstract Reasoning Test

About Abstract Reasoning Test

This test assesses a candidate’s lateral thinking, problem-solving, and strategic thinking skills that are valuable in the workplace.

Most commonly, it’s used in industries such as technology and engineering, as it helps recruiters better understand which candidates have the sharp minds and critical thinking skills needed to succeed in such fields.

Abstract Reasoning is closely related to fluid intelligence, the ability to quickly reason with information to solve new, unfamiliar problems independent of prior knowledge. 

This test is relevant for candidates who are keen at learning new skills, adapting and adjusting their approaches, seeing the big picture, and thinking strategically. It is also one of the cognitive abilities that have been consistently linked to better work performance and leadership effectiveness. It is an assessment that uses shapes and patterns to assess your problem-solving skills and ability to spot logical series.

The test is created by a subject-matter expert

Testlify’s skill tests are designed by experienced SMEs (subject matter experts). We evaluate these experts based on specific metrics such as expertise, capability, and their market reputation. Prior to being published, each skill test is peer-reviewed by other experts and then calibrated based on insights derived from a significant number of test-takers who are well-versed in that skill area. Our inherent feedback systems and built-in algorithms enable our SMEs to refine our tests continually.
