The Predictive Index cognitive assessment is an ability test which measures your capacity to learn, adapt, and acquire new skills in the workplace.
Three question types are included in this cognition area of the PI cognitive assessment. Take my quick and interactive timed quiz, made with original sample questions to see how well you do:
For example, what’s the next number in the series:
49, 45, 42, 40, ?
The answer is 39, as the series descends like this: -4,-3,-2,-1
For example, which of the following has the lowest value?
0.15, 1/5, 15/10, 10/15
The answer is 0.15
In the past two years,Nina’s salary grew by 25% each year. Two years ago, her salary was $80,000 per year. What will be Nina’s annual salary this year?
$115K | $120K | $125K | $130K
The answer is (80*1.25)*1.25
Step 1: [(80*1)+(80*0.25)=100
Step 2: [(100*1.25)=125
You can practice and improve on all three numerical reasoning question types. However, for some of you (including myself at the time) it may require a serious review of school-level math.
The three verbal reasoning questions on the PI cognitive assessment require high level of vocabulary and fast reading skills for the analysis question type. The assessment is available in 70+ languages so you must take it in your mother tongue! Here are three original practice questions:
Really simple, only requires strong vocabulary. You better take the test in a language you feel most comfortable with.
Here’s a really good list of analogy types and solving strategies:
This one’s a bit harder. It involves reading assumptions and connecting them in logical bridges. Only practice can get you to master this question type.
Before taking the real test, you’ll be presented with three sample questions. One of them belongs to verbal analysis. Let’s solve it together.
Sally laughed only twice yesterday.
Solution: The conclusion cannot be determined. The first assumption tells us about a specific condition that makes Sally laugh. However, we are not told that this is the only condition. There may be other things that cause Sally to laugh.
I was able to find a nice amount of tests that include 50 questions and need to be solved in 12 minutes. They’re a great way to practice freely, although I wouldn’t count on them alone.
