Aptitude Tests

Aptitude tests are the most objective and reliable way of measuring an individual's ability to complete specific tasks.

Using an ability or aptitude test as part of your recruitment process helps you predict how well suited someone is to meet the demands of a role, and how quickly they will learn new skills. You can test verbal or numerical reasoning, knowledge, skills and comprehension. 

Tazio has partnered with Saville Assessment to integrate their comprehensive range of individual and combined aptitude, situational judgement and personality tests seamlessly into the Tazio platform.

We also have a team of experienced occupational psychologists who can design, build and validate bespoke aptitude tests. These can more accurately assess candidates for the skills required to perform well in your specific role, not just their general aptitude.

Verbal reasoning tests are used to assess a person's ability to understand, analyse and interpret written information. They can also be used to test a candidate's spelling, grammar and understanding of analogies.

Numerical reasoning tests

Numerical reasoning tests typically assess a person's understanding of basic arithmetic, number sequences and simple mathematics. In more advanced tests, candidates may be shown charts or graphs and asked to interpret the results.

Abstract reasoning tests assess a person's general intellect and ability to work out new concepts and abstract ideas. They determine a person's ability to see the underlying logic in a pattern of symbols or shapes.

Abstract reasoning ability is believed to be a good indicator of a person's fluid intelligence, or their ability to learn things quickly. They are especially useful for roles that require a high level of problem solving and initiative.

Mechanical reasoning tests

A mechanical reasoning, or mechanical comprehension test, is designed to assess a person's applied knowledge of common physical and mechanical principles.

These are typically used for technical and engineering roles, as they are a good indicator of person's current understanding and potential to do well in the role.

Fault diagnosis tests are more specific to a role and are designed to assess a person's ability to identify and correctly select the appropriate repair in electronic and mechanical systems.
