What do Inductive Reasoning Tests assess?
Inductive Reasoning refers to the ability to analyse information, detect patterns and relationships, and solve problems. Essentially they measure general intelligence. The skills assessed are particular useful for jobs that require:
- - Logical reasoning where employees need to work out new concepts and ideas
- - Problem-solving where employees need to deal with complex data, or perform non-routine tasks where initiative is required
- - Strategic or broad thinking where employees need to connect disparate information in order to build understanding
Overview of the Test
The test consists of a total of 36 questions to answer 30 minutes. Candidates are presented with images in a nine-box matrix, followed by six individual images. In each case one image from the nine-box matrix is missing. The missing image is represented by a red question mark. The task is to identify the missing image from the six individual images presented to you. In each case, only one image form the six is correct.
