Single Technical Aptitudes

A series of three single aptitude tests (analytical tests) of spatial, mechanical and diagrammatic reasoning.

Target Group: Construction, engineering, technical and operational roles.

Spatial Reasoning

Assesses the ability to recognise shapes, under time pressure. Each item in the test contains four objects where three of the objects are identical while one object is different in shape. The task is to identify the object that is different.

Mechanical Reasoning

This test assesses mechanical understanding through items that present a problem with a number of possible answers, under time pressure. The task is to identify the correct answer to each problem.

Diagrammatic Reasoning

This test assesses the ability to evaluate processes represented through diagrams, under time pressure. The assessment contains panels and illustrations that define logical processes followed by questions which need to be answered using the diagrams presented. Please note that Diagrammatic Reasoning is a less difficult alternative to the assessments involving Diagrammatic Analysis, which additionally feature the ‘Finding Faults’ and ‘Comparing Flowchart Sequences’ item types.

Large Pool of Questions (Item Bank)

All questions are drawn from a larger pool of questions (item bank). Hence, a person does not get the same questions if completing the test more than once.
