Learn everything you need about your PI cognitive assessment score. Including score conversion tables, answers to frequently asked questions, and more.
See the image below, which is the score report I received from the HR team a few days after taking the assessment at home.
Below is how the employer will see your score in their system. The suitcase bar indicates the target score they had set for the job, which in this case is just above the average. The blue human icon bar is the score of a sample candidate. In this case, the sample candidate scored higher than the target score. It still doesn’t mean they will be selected…they may be overqualified, and/or there are other factors, other than the PI cognitive assessment score, which will affect the qualification process. For example, the PI behavioural assessment results.
The graph below helps match between raw scores, scale scores, and percentiles.
The vertical orange line is the average raw score (20/50) which corresponds with a scale score of 250 and the 50th percentile.
The vertical green line represents the score 27/50, which corresponds with a scale score of 320 and the 80th percentile. Any score from here and above will be considered a competitive score.
No, you won’t. The PI cognitive assessment only looks at the amount of correct answers.
The average score is 20 correct answers out of 50. This translates to a scaled score of 250 out of 450.
That’s a tricky question, as per each job, the employer will set a different target score. I think you should simply prepare in advance, do your best on the test, and hope for good.
If you’ve done worse than your expectations, you should talk about it with your recruiter/employer and kindly request to be re-assessed.
I’m not sure you can count on that. I, for example, didn’t, and I had to wait for an update from the HR team.
Your PI cognitive assessment score will be seen by hiring managers/recruiters who asked you to take it and that’s it. In fact, there might be cases in which even you won’t be told your exact score. Employers sometimes prefer keeping this information confidential, so that employees don’t start comparing each other and making judgements.
Well, it depends. If you scored higher on the 2nd attempt then all is good! If you score lower, it depends how low in comparison to the first attempt. A big, negative gap between two scores will very likely raise questions about your credibility, and you might be marked as a cheater.
Yes there is. This information is available on the PI website. Just search for PI cognitive assessment score conversion table, or see the list of resources at the bottom of this page.
