Verbal reasoning test design is one of our specialities.
Verbal reasoning test design
Most recently, Rob Williams Assessment has been working with the British Army to develop a literacy test which aims to assess the literacy levels of potential soldiers attending Army training. This large project involved designing over 20 SJTs, realistic job previews, ability tests (numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning and abstract reasoning), personality questionnaires and career guidance tests.
The three primary abilities we identified as important for successful performance when training to be a British Army Soldier were as follows:
- Numerical ability – the ability to solve mathematical problems and to analyse numerical information
- Verbal ability – the ability to understand and work with written information
- Spatial ability – the ability to identify patterns and relationships between shapes. This is particularly important for problem-solving, dealing with new situations, and learning from the experience.
