Which Ability Test Should I Use For Graduates

Ability/capability tests measure an individual’s intellectual horsepower and are most commonly used in recruitment and selection. There are two types of ability tests – those which measure verbal reasoning and those which measure numerical reasoning.

Research has shown very strong links between the ability to make strategic decisions in business and the ability to deal with abstract concepts, logic and to reason verbally. In addition extensive research has also shown strong correlations between capability and management effectiveness.

Getfeedback recommends either of the below tests for measuring ability/intellectual capability in graduates.
