PI Cognitive Assessment

Cognitive ability is the #1 predictor of job success. The PI Cognitive Assessment™ measures our capacity to learn, adapt, and quickly grasp new concepts in the workplace. Most commonly used during the hiring process, cognitive ability assessments are proven predictors of training success and job performance across all job levels and industries.

When you understand cognitive ability, you are better able to choose employees who are best matched to the role they you have—who will learn quickly and independently where required, and who are able to meet and exceed performance expectations.

Why should I measure cognitive ability?

General cognitive ability assessments are among the best predictors of training success and job performance across all levels and industries. Greatly improve your odds of selecting individuals who catch on quickly, figure things out on their own, and are able to more easily connect knowing to doing.

Is this tool scientifically valid?

Yes! The PI Cognitive Assessment is a scientifically validated measure of general mental agility—modeled on strict standards of test construction set by professional organizations such as the APA (American Psychological Association), SIOP (Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology), and the ITC (International Test Commission).
