What is a cognitive ability test?

Cognitive skills refer to the human ability to perform complex tasks closely associated with problem-solving and learning. The human brain uses cognitive skills to think, learn, read, remember, concentrate and focus on daily tasks and process new information.

Assessing candidates' cognitive skills and selecting those who align with a company's goals and strategies can help build winning teams.

Understanding the science behind cognitive assessments

Intelligence = Cognitive Intelligence + Emotional Intelligence
