Cognitive Assessments for Recruitments

Research shows that tests of General Mental Ability (GMA) are one of the best predictors of on-the-job-performance. In conjunction with Structured Interviews and/or Work Samples, tests of General Mental Ability are an invaluable tool in the recruitment toolkit.

However, not all tests of GMA are the same. Often, what pass off as tests of GMA today,  are in fact primarily tests of knowledge and practice and less of ability.
