Sample Ability Tests & Reports

Adaptive tests are the next level in the evolution of testing people’s abilities and skills, and became reality once computer based testing took a leap forward from merely replicated paper and pencil tests to adapting the test to meet the individual candidate.

This is achieved by the test raising or lowering the complexity of the next question depending on whether the candidate answers the preceding question correctly or incorrectly.  When applied to the Verbal, Numerical & Abstract Reasoning Tests in the GRT-Adapt, this test allows extremely bright candidates to demonstrate their skills without making less able candidates feel the anxiety of performing poorly.

The GRT-Adapt is aimed at the general population and suitable for a broad range of jobs and candidates who have completed secondary education.
