Skills and Abilities

You can complete a whole range of tests that familiarise you with the broad range of reasoning and ability tests used in the world of work. Below you will see some are warm up tests to tune your speed, accuracy and memory; some tests of specific abilities like Spatial Visualisation and some parallel versions of our reasoning tests used by our clients for their recruitment and continuing development of staff (with a tutorial version so that you get feedback on what was right and wrong and why. These help you prepare for companies that use tests as part of their selection process. Some also tell you how you compare to that of graduates – even if you are not a graduate yourself.

Emergency Stop Test (EST-BS)

This is a simple Reaction Time test.  It simulates you driving along a road and you have to press a key to STOP as soon as a Stag jumps out in front of you.

Verbal Analogies Test (VAT-SA)

These tests require you to identify a relationship between two words or concepts and apply that logic to a second pair of words?  This was once the most common format to use when measuring verbal reasoning and was part of many ‘IQ’ tests.  Today they are still used especially in the field of education

Wall Test (WT-BS)

You are presented with a wall and you must click on different sides of the wall depending on the image that appears. There are three levels of this test where the complexity of the information you must process increases. For Level 1 you simply click on the same side if there is a white circle or the opposite side if there is a black circle. For Level 2 your choice depends on whether you see a relaxing or a combative image. For Level 3 the choice depends on whether a face is either happy or sad – and you will see a great range of different faces.

Colour Confusion Test (CCT-BS)

This is based on the well known Stroop effect. The first half asks you to click on the colour that matches a word (i.e. if it says Blue you click on the Blue circle even if the word is in a Red font). This can introduce confusion. The second half of the test asks you to click on the colour that matches a colour of the ink (i.e. if it says Blue but the ink colour is Red you click on the Red circle).

Preserve Wildlife Test (PWT-FA)

This test requires you to help animals find their way to their ‘home’.  They emerge from a cave and you direct them by opening and closing gates.  If they end up in the wrong home they die.  If you allow too many in one field they will die.  The challenge is to get as many home as possible as different animals keep emerging.  For Level 1 you have 4 animals, 4 fields and 4 homes.  For Level 2 you have 5 animals, 6 fields and 5 homes. For Level 3 you have 6 animals, 9 fields and 6 homes.

Animal Memory Test (AMT-BC)

This is based on the n-back method.  There are three levels of this test where the memory challenge gets harder.  You will see a landscape in which pictures of animals will appear and disappear.  For Level 1 you need to say whether each animal is the Same or Different from the previous one (i.e. 1-back).  For Level 2 you need to say whether each animal is the Same or Different from the one before the previous one (i.e. 2-back).  For Level 3 you need to say whether each animal is the Same or Different from the one that was two before the previous one (i.e. 3-back).

Picture Matrix Test (PMT-BC)

This is based on the ‘pairs game’.  You will be presented with the ‘backs’ of a pack of ‘cards.’  These can be turned over by clicking on them.  Once two cards have been turned over, if they match they remain visible but if they don’t they are turned back over.  If later you turn one over and remember that it is the same as a previous one you can make the match. There are 3 levels where Level 1 has a pack of 16 cards (4×4); Level 2 has a pack of 32 cards (4×8); Level 3 has a pack of 48 cards (6×8).

Memory and Attention Test (MAT)

This test requires you to read certain rules and apply them to successive panels that contain shapes of different colours in various positions.  The challenge is to remember the rules and to apply them quickly and accurately.  As you go through the panels the number of rules increases and they get increasingly complex. It produces an overall score summarising speed and accuracy together with 4 further scores giving further information about how information is being processed. The test is in two parts and it takes aprroximately 30 minutes which includes the time to read the instructions and complete the practice examples .

Abstract Reasoning Picture Test (APT-SA)

You will be presented with six images (the A pattern) all of which have something in common – there is a rule that makes them similar.  Another 6 images (the B pattern) will use a different rule.  You will need to decide whether decide whether a further image fits the A or B pattern or neither.  There are 2 levels of difficulty and then a 3rd level which uses pictures instead of shapes.

Abstract Matrices Test (AMT-SA)

These tests present images (either shapes or pictures) in a 3×3 matrix – but one image is always missing.   You must choose one of 6 images further images that fits best in the missing box.  ‘Best’ means identifying a logical sequence either across or down the matrix or both.  There are 2 levels of difficulty and then a 3rd level which uses pictures instead of shapes.

Numerical Computation Test (NCT-SA)

You will be given a ‘target’ number.  You then choose from 6 other numbers to make the target number with the appropriate operations (add, subtract, multiply, divide).  Level 1 involves addition. Level 2 involves addition and subtraction.  Level 3 involves all four rules including the use of brackets.  Don’t be fooled – this is harder than it looks!

Spatial Aptitude Test (SAT-SA)

You will be presented with a flat design which, when folded makes a shape. You will need to choose from 4 alternatives the only shape that could be made from the design. The 3 levels increase the complexity of what you have to visualise.
