GRT2 – General Reasoning Test
For Adults of a Wide Range of Ability & Young People 15+
A comprehensive, detailed and accurate measure of mental ability, this test has been designed to assess reasoning power for those of general ability. It consists of three sections measuring Verbal, Numerical and Abstract reasoning ability.
Verbal Reasoning measures basic vocabulary, verbal fluency and he ability to reason using words. The test is appropriate for all jobs which require a general level of verbal ability e.g. junior sales and administrative positions, clerical jobs.
Numerical Reasoning measures the ability to use numbers in a logical, efficient way. The test is appropriate for all jobs which require a general level of numerical ability e.g. accounts clerks and technical roles.
Abstract Reasoning measures the ability to understand abstract logical problems and use new information outside the range of previous experience.
For the assessment of adults of a wide range of ability and young people over 15. Decision-maker and respondent reports with group report option for decision-makers. Use for selection, individual development and guidance.

CRTB2 (CRTBi Item Banked) – Critical Reasoning Test Battery
For Graduate & Managerial Calibre Adults
Used for assessing high level critical reasoning ability. Critical Reasoning is an ability that is central to all roles that require the incumbent to take logical decisions based on complex information. The CRTB2 comprises two sub-tests which measure verbal and numerical critical reasoning.
Verbal Critical Reasoning measures the ability to understand and accurately draw logical conclusions and inferences from complex reports. Consequently, it forms a key assessment for managerial and professional roles which require accurate interpretation of written reports and rational decision making.
Numerical Critical Reasoning measures the ability to understand and critically evaluate a wide range of numerical data and draw logical conclusions from this. It forms a key assessment for managerial and professional roles which require the ability to understand financial, numerical and statistical information.
Can identify people who:
Take ill informed decisions vs Weigh up evidence logically
Fail to grasp numerical concepts vs Identify trends in data
Overlook core information vs Isolate the key points in an argument
Struggle to grasp complex arguments vs Understand complex arguments
Fail to appreciate all the evidence vs Assimilate all the evidence
Are confused by statistical and financial data vs Comprehend statistical & financial info
Are slow to process information vs Process information quickly
Have poor business judgement vs Make well-informed business decisions
Are unable to find solutions to problems vs Solve problems effectively
Suitable for graduate and management calibre adults. Decision-maker and respondent reports, with group report option for decision-makers.
Timing 40 minutes plus administration time
ART – Abstract Reasoning Test
For Graduate and Managerial Calibre Adults
ART assesses an individual’s capacity to perceive logical patterns and relationships and extrapolate from these, sometimes referred to as Fluid Intelligence.
Designed to assess the capacity to adapt to and learn from novel situations and experiences. The respondent is required to think holistically and analyse complex patterns across two dimensions, considered to be a core ability for strategic thinking. This ability is important for roles which require the incumbent to assimilate complex logical material, identify the patterns underlying this material and draw inferences from this.
Use for Selection and Individual Development. Decision-maker and candidate reports, with group report option for decision-makers. Particularly appropriate for use with graduate, managerial and professional groups.
Timing 30 minutes plus administration time
CTB2 – Clerical Test Battery
For Clerical and Administrative Staff
This battery consists of four tests assessing a range of clerical aptitudes and skills: Verbal Reasoning, Numerical Ability, Clerical Checking and Spelling.
Verbal Reasoning measures basic vocabulary, verbal fluency and the ability to reason using words.
Numerical Ability measures the ability to use numbers efficiently in clerical and administrative contexts. This test assesses the ability to perform such tasks as calculating travelling expenses and working out the unit pricing of goods.
Clerical Checking assesses the ability to quickly and accurately check verbal and numerical information (names, addresses, code numbers and telephone numbers etc. against a target. It is a classic speed/precision test which assesses the ability to quickly and accurately code data.
Spelling assesses the ability to correctly spell commonly misspelt words. This test provides a quick and reliable measure of the candidate’s ability to spell accurately.
Filing (on-screen application) assesses the ability to classify names quickly and accurately into an existing electronic alphabetical filing system.
Designed for general clerical and administrative positions. Use for selection, individual development and guidance.
TTB2 – Technical Test Battery
For Applicants and Trainees at Craft or Technician Level
Measures the core skills that are required for selecting and assessing staff for engineering apprenticeships, craft apprenticeships or technical training. It consists of three tests: Mechanical Reasoning, Spatial Reasoning and Visual Acuity. Can be integrated with GRT2 to provide a fully integrated aptitude profile and narrative report. More than a measure of technical knowledge, TTB2 identifies potential to grasp technical concepts and put them to practical use, making it an essential assessment tool for anyone being considered for roles where technical ability is emphasised.
Mechanical Reasoning measures the ability to understand mechanical concepts and physical principles in operation. The items have been selected from a wide range of areas (including optics, electrics, fluids and mechanics) so users can be confident that they are measuring a broad range of mechanical reasoning ability.
Spatial Reasoning measures spatial ability through items that assess the ability to visualise patterns in three dimensions and match three-dimensional objects to two-dimensional patterns. The items have been selected to represent a wide range of shapes e.g. cubes, pyramids, cones, rhomboids and an innovative variety of other multi-faceted shapes. Users can be confident they are measuring a broad range of spatial/diagrammatic ability.
Visual Acuity has been specifically designed for on-screen assessment and measures the ability to work with highly detailed technical material such as wiring and circuit diagrams. The test involves following a single pathway through a complex maze and assesses visual and attentional capacity which is relatively independent of general ability. Developed for roles which involve checking, repairing and replacing electrical/electronic circuitry and components.
Use for selection, individual development and guidance. Decision-maker and candidate reports, with group report option for decision-makers.
Timing 45 minutes plus administration time
Adapt-g – General Ability (Item Banked)
For All Adults
Adapt-g is specifically developed to assess verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning domains of ability. It is useful for identifying employees who are likely to benefit from further training, those who demonstrate promotion potential and for assessing whether candidates have the minimum ability level necessary for a particular role.
Measures Verbal Reasoning – verbal fluency, vocabulary and the ability to reason using words. The test is appropriate for all jobs which require a level of verbal ability e.g. administrative staff, sales positions, system analysts and executives.
Numerical Reasoning – the ability to use and understand numerical concepts, to reason using numbers and perceive logical relationships between them. Appropriate for all jobs which require a level of numerical ability e.g. accountants, financial advisors, sales positions.
Abstract Reasoning – the ability to understand abstract logical relationships and reasoning new information outside the range of previous experience. Appropriate for all jobs which require bringing logical analysis to bear in novel, intellectually demanding situations.
For all levels of ability. Reports for the decision-maker and respondent available.
