Verbal Reasoning Tests

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

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

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.

Data Checking Tests

Data checking tests are used primarily for administrative and data input roles, data checking tests measures how quickly and accurately errors can be detected in example data by the candidate.

Our Approach

1. Define what to measure

The first step, we determine what it is you need to measure. For example, what skills, experience or particular knowledge is required to do a job.

Job analysis or employee assessments identify the competencies, skills, behaviours and strengths (factors) of the ideal employee for that role.

2. Design and build

The second step, we select or create the items (questions) which will objectively measure the factors identified in Step 1.

We create your assessment on the Tazio platform including the introduction and conclusion text, video introductions, scenarios and questions.

3. Validate and refine

Step three, we test your assessment with existing employees or a sample of candidates to ensure it correctly measures the appropriate factors.

We validate your assessment, removing or updating items as necessary. Once you're happy your assessment is reliable and valid, you can start using it.
