The right combination

Combining cognitive ability tests with personality assessment is twice as predictive of job performance in new candidates than critical reasoning tests alone. This is according to Hogan Assessments – the global leader in providing workplace personality assessment and leadership consulting – which claims that the power of combined assessments lies in incremental validity.

Cognitive ability tests and personality assessments predict different aspects of job performance, providing employers with incremental validity when combined. A cognitive test measures an individual’s ability to solve problems and how they go about making decisions. This is important in routine, structured jobs, where candidates are required to produce solutions to problems, evaluate the risks associated with these solutions and ultimately make quick and informed decisions.

The three best measures that cover all aspects of cognitive ability
 
Hogan Assessments offers a variety of cognitive tests and has identified the three best measures that cover all aspects of cognitive ability:
 
  • Raven’s APM-III: This assesses a candidate’s ability to identify and recognise patterns, which is a crucial component of problem-solving.
  • The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory: This measures critical reasoning and decision-making ability, tasking candidates with solving a variety of business-related problems.
  • The Hogan Judgement Report: This assesses how a candidate makes decisions, and how they respond to feedback about their decisions. It unpacks subconscious biases and provides insight into how these biases may influence the decision-making process.
