Graduate Reasoning Test

A comprehensive and in-depth measure of mental ability, GRT1 has been designed to assess high level reasoning ability. Suitable for management and graduate calibre staff, it consists of three sections which can be administered individually or together, measuring Verbal, Numerical and Abstract reasoning ability.

Verbal Reasoning measures verbal fluency, vocabulary and the ability to understand and reason using words. This test is appropriate for all jobs which require a high level of verbal ability (e.g. managerial, senior sales and administrative positions, system analysts, marketing and advertising executives).

Numerical Reasoning measures the ability to use and understand numerical concepts, to reason using numbers and perceive logical relationships between them. This test is appropriate for all jobs which require a high level of numerical ability (e.g. accountants and others in the financial services sector and for all senior positions which require dealing with financial and technical data).

Abstract Reasoning measures the ability to understand abstract logical problems and use new information outside the range of previous experience. This is the purest form of mental ability and is least influenced by previous education and achievement. It is appropriate for all jobs which require bringing logical analysis to bear in novel, intellectually demanding situations (e.g. senior management positions, technical and scientific posts).

GRT1 provides a comprehensive assessment of high level mental ability. It is quick to complete, taking 28 minutes plus administration time. As mental ability has been consistently found to be the best single predictor of job performance, the GRT1 is an essential tool for cost-effective graduate selection and assessment. GRT1 has been completed by thousands of people worldwide from a variety of occupations and cultural backgrounds. As a result, an extensive range of norms exist enabling respondents’ results to be compared to those obtained by a wide range of professional groups.
