Raven’s Advanced Progressive Matrices (APM-III)

Raven’s is a highly trusted cognitive test that helps organisations identify an individual’s general cognitive ability. It measures the ability to make meaning out of confusion, formulate new concepts, and solve problems and tasks when faced with novel, complex information in unfamiliar situations. This test can help predict candidates’ ability to do new tasks.

Raven’s is a cognitive test that can be used across candidate pools where multiple languages are spoken, thus removing language bias. Raven’s APM is designed to help you effectively, objectively, and efficiently screen applicants’ general cognitive ability levels in unsupervised settings.

Identify Complex Problem Solvers

Which of your candidates will catch on quickly and thrive in a fast-paced environment? Who will be able to decode new and complex data to solve problems in unfamiliar situations? Can they think well conceptually? Interviews and résumés might make it hard to tell, but a cognitive test will give you an answer.
