Use the General Cognitive Ability Test (GCAT) to identify the mental strengths of your people. Measure their verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning skills so you can make people-management decisions that unlock your organisation’s potential.

General Cognitive Ability influences how quickly a person can learn and adapt, and how well they can understand and solve problems. Testing these skills can help you make the most of your people’s potential and give your organisation the edge.

What does GCAT measure?

This test measures abstract, numerical and verbal reasoning to establish a person’s general mental ability.

Why is it important?

Assessing and understanding general cognitive ability allows you you hire more effectively, place the right people in the right roles, and reveal the members of your organisation with high potential so that none of your talent goes to waste.

Reliability & Validity

The GCAT shows strong reliability. If retested under similar conditions, the results are consistent.

The tool also has very high validity. This means it’s precise in reflecting the qualities you have set out to measure. This has held up over years of research findings and business practice around the world.
