Mechanical reasoning is your ability to understand mechanical concepts and recognise mechanical principles, to apply these concepts and principles to make judgments and assumptions.
Mechanical reasoning tests are designed to evaluate a candidate's knowledge across a range of areas; these might include acceleration, friction, pressure, gravity, circuit diagrams, energy transformation, kinetic and potential energy, magnetism, levers, pulleys, gears, springs, etc.
Mechanical reasoning tests are typically used when selecting manual or technical roles, particularly in engineering and skilled trades.
Research has shown that mechanical reasoning tests are valid predictors of future workplace performance.
This 10-minute aptitude test measures practical reasoning through short spatial (3 min), mechanical (3 min) and diagrammatic (4 min) sub-tests. It is designed for all technical roles, e.g. production workers, apprentices, engineers, designers and scientists.
Time: 16 minutes
