In a general mental ability test, a candidate will face different types of questions based on several aptitudes, including reading, writing, and logical skills. During the test, they will need to use these inherent skills to demonstrate their ability to solve problems, think critically, and be innovative.
General mental ability tests are usually taken online, and the results are used by the recruitment team to choose the applicants who are most likely to be high-performing in the role that they have applied for.
Failing a general mental ability test, or not reaching the standard that is needed to progress usually means that the application will no longer be considered, so it is important to perform as well as you can if you are faced with this assessment.
Employers use the general mental ability tests to see how well a candidate deals with pressure, and how they approach solving different problems. Candidates who perform well on a general mental ability test are usually intelligent and innovative, and tend to be faster learners that are better at creative thinking.
The general mental ability test helps to make the recruitment process more streamlined, by narrowing down a large candidate pool using the results. This means that the only candidates who are taken through to the next stage of the process are likely to be the ones who would have the best prospects in the role if they were accepted.
Many management-level positions also require the skills that are tested in the general mental ability test, which is why you are likely to see them if you are applying for a role as an office manager or even an executive.
The general mental ability test is delivered to candidates via an email link, which means that you can take it at home at your convenience. There is usually a time limit in which the test needs to be taken which can be anywhere between 48 hours and a week.
There are many ways that you can hone your mental skills even before you are facing a general mental ability test. The skills that you use in the test are those that you will need to put into practice when you get the job.
There are general mental ability tests available to practice online. These tests are based on those created by the test publishers, and are an excellent way for you to get used to the way a test is formatted and structured, the type of question that you might face, and how you need to answer.
broad range of age and grade levels. The scholastic aptitudetests,some of which are entrance examinations, assess subjects'academicpotential and/or aspects of mental ability which are deemedimportantfor success in school work. Cogniti-e ability tests arealso includedand these assess such factors as ..)al and numericalskills,reasoning ability, and understanding of number processesandmathematical concepts. (A separate bibliography is availablecoveringtests of reasoning, logical thinking, and problem-solvingabilities.)This document is one in a series of topicalbibliographies from theTest Collection (TC) at Educational TestingService (ETS) containingdescriptions of more than 18,000 tests andother measurement devicesprepared by commercial publishers,teachers, educationalinstitutions, vofessional associations,departments of education,counselors, etc. Each description containsthe following basicinformation: TC Accession Number (a six-digitidentification numberassigned by the Test Collection); the title ofthe instrument;personal or institutional author; year ofpublication ,r copyright;availability source; grade level for whichtest is suitable; agelevel for which test is suitable; andabstract.

interrelated mental abilities and general intelligence. Inadditionto an overall composite score formed by combining thestandard scoresof all 12 subtests, there are 3 othei scores. Theoptimal levelcomposite consists of the four highest standard scoresand is thebest estimate of an individual's overall potential. TheDomainsComposites consists of three ability areas and providescontrastingcomposites for verbal and nonverbal in the linguisticdomain, attention-enhanced and attention-reduced composite in theattentional domain,and a motor-enhanced and motor-reduced in themotor domain. TheTheoretical Composite consists of subtestsassigned to compositesthat represent major constructs withinpopular theories of generalintelligence, such as Horn and Cattell'sfluid and crystallizedintelligence. The test battery has four mainuses: to inventory aperson's relative strengths and weaknesses, tohelp identify olderadolescents and adults who deficient in mentalability, to aid inmaking judgments about an individual's futureperformance, and to useas a research tool. Information is availableabout norming procedures,validity, and reliability.

different but interrelated mental abilities. Used toisolateindividual strengths weaknesses and to identify studentsdeficientin general or specific aptitudes. Changes from the secondeditioninclude retaining three of the original four domains,dropping oldsubtests and adding new ones, introducing theoreticalcompositesrelated to hypothetical constructs found in currenttheories ofintelligence and information processing, and including aoptimalcomposite derived by adding the four largest standardscoresachieved on the subtests. The standard scores can becombineto show 16 composite scores grouped into four sets:generalmental ability composite, optimal level composite, domaincomposites,and theoretical composites. The time required toadminister thebattery varies 50 minutes to 2 hours. DTLA-3 has fourmain uses:to determine strengths and weaknesses among developedmental abilities,to identify those significantly below their peersin importantabilities, to predict future performance, and to use inresearchstudies on aptitude, intelligence, and cognitivebehavior.
tests measuring cognitive abilities; scholastic aptitudes,andachievement. Cognitive and Achievement Batteries are eachorganizedin standard and supplemental test books. The StandardBatteriesprovide in-depth testing when more information is desired.Coversage range from two through ninety. Common norms are providedforCognitive and Achievement Batteries along with derived scoresandprofiles. With this revision, ten new tests have been added totheCognitive Abilities Battery and four new tests to theAchievementBattery. The Achievement Battery now has alternateforms, A and B.The Achievement Standard Battery consists of 9tests. TheSupplemental Battery also has 9 tests. Both batteries canbe used toassess four curricular areas: reading, mathematics,written language,and knowledge.
AB ABSTRACT: Woodcock-Johnson-Revised is a battery ofstandardizedtests measuring cognitive abilities, scholasticaptitudes, andachievement. Cognitive and Achievement Batteries areeach organizedin standard and supplemental test books. The StandardBatteriesprovide core information quickly. The SupplementalBatteries providein-depth testing when more information is desired.Covers age rangefrom two through ninety. Common norms are providedfor Cognitive andAchievement Batteries along with derived scoresand profiles. Withthis revision, ten new tests have been added tothe CognitiveAbilities Battery and four new tests to theAchievement Battery. TheCognitive Ability Battery-Standard contains7 tests, each measuringa different aspect of intellectual ability.Cognitive AbilityBattery-Supplemental contains 14 additionalmeasures. The seven
the cognitive ability and development of young children. Thetaslmand tests are used to measure mental imagery, anticipationoftransformations, memory skills, mental rotations,visual-auditorysequential memory, ability to order stimuli seriallyaccording to onedimension. Some of the tasks require elaborateconstructions withwood and electric lights. Descriptions of theseare included. TheKinetic Imagery Task was adapted from Piaget andInhelder's work.Each child is tested individually. Some testsrequire training priorto testing.
AB ABSTRACT: This language-free, motor reduced, and culturereducedmeasure of intellectual functioning which requiresabstract/figuralproblem solving. It is useful in situations wherepre- andpost-measures are desirable. There are two equivalentforms, form Aand form B. Each form contains items arranged in orderof difficulty.These items contain one or more of the followingcharacteristics:shape, position, direction, rotation, contiguity,shading, size,length, movement, and figured pattern. One or more ofthe followingrules are used in each item: simple matching,analogies, addition,subtraction, alteration progressions,classification intersectionsand progressions. This instrumentshould be used in the intellectualappraisal of subjects whose testperformance may be confounded bylanguage and motor impairmentsarising from such conditions asaphasia, hearing impairments, lackof proficiency with spoken orwritten English, Cerebral Palsy,stroke, head trauma, and lack offamiliarity with the culture of theUnited States.
