9 Sections of Assessment

1. Abstract Logic

Measures the individual’s ability to understand: The interrelationship between different concepts and to combine them on a higher level under one concept. How different phenomena relate to each other. How well the person understands ‘the big picture’ by connecting different concepts. It correlates with general learning skills and can be developed over time. It assesses memory in recalling of a ‘frame of reference’.

2. Understanding Logical Processes

Measures ability to understand cause-effect relationships. How the information available influences the future and what that consequence of the present information could be. How systematic the person’s thinking process is. Tests deductive logic to unlearn and think systematically. 

3. Spatial Reasoning

Measures ability to comprehend visual entities and their components. Ability to manage information collected by visual perception. Tests mechanical logic to manage visual perception and correlates with process management and the skills often required by architects and visual designers.

4. Social Context

Measures general sensitiveness to and observation of social phenomenon. Reflects the ability to sense conflict situations and to reason how the interpersonal relationships influence a situation. It correlates with skills needed in jobs that require social understanding; an ability to respond according to how social interactions develop (also called ‘ inter-personal savvy’); and the skills necessary to manage conflict situations.

5. Numerical Reasoning

Measures ability to perceive the relationships between numerical information. It correlates with skills needed in jobs that require ability to follow a logic presented by numbers. Typically, it correlates with tasks like data analysis, statistics processing and accounting.  

6. Mathematical Logical Reasoning

Measures the ability to understand logical applications of mathematics, evaluate arguments and detect fallacious reasoning. The ability to apply mathematics, logic and/or statistics to help make decisions. To set up connections between everyday phenomena and abstract systems. To distinguish between a valid and invalid deductive argument and to prove invalidity by providing a counter example.

7. Word Association

The ability to understand relationships between different concepts. To classify information, combine data that relate to each other and understanding differences between concepts. It correlates with creative performance and ability to produce completely new solutions to old problems.

8. Memory Test

The ability to visualize and mentally store multiple visual objects, like graphical images. How quickly a person can identify small differences in seemingly similar images. Tests the ability to perform well in tasks requiring extensive working memory and with a person's working memory capacity.

9. Verbal Reasoning

The ability to understand written information, conceptualise it and find causal relationships. The ability to identify the essential information and understand how it relates to the problem being solved. Relevant to tasks where word meaning and interpretation are important.
