What you need to know about cognitive ability assessments.

A cognitive ability assessment is used to assess an individual’s problem-solving, analytic and reasoning skills. This type of assessment is commonly used to measure how quickly a person can move from acquiring knowledge, retaining it, organising it, and then being able to apply it in a given situation.

If an individual isn’t assessed against the personal characteristics that are relevant to the job, employers could recruit or promote people who are not well suited to their role, which can be disruptive and costly to the organisation.

A cognitive ability assessment allows everyone involved in the recruitment, or learning and development process, to work from established criteria. This means that assessors and employers can determine if an individual is likely to perform in a role.

Practitioner Training is for organisations that want to create a pool of in-house assessors and trainers, capable of carrying out assessments and delivering professional training and feedback to others.

A practitioner may be an existing trainer who is supplementing or reinforcing their skills or somebody less experienced. This course includes:

  • The principles of Cognitive Ability Assessments
  • Developing key assessment and training skills
  • Improving confidence and capability

Any type of organisation can adopt this model. However, it is best suited to large organisations or those that have a frequent need to carry out assessments and deliver training.
