he PI Cognitive Assessment consists of 50 multiple-choice questions from three cognitive ability categories (verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning) and nine subcategories. Essentially, it assesses the rate at which a person can learn—rapid knowledge acquisition. If change is a constant in your organization, pay special attention to cognitive ability.
General cognitive ability assessments are among the very best predictors of training success and job performance across all job levels and industries. When cognitive ability is used as a key data point in talent decision-making, the odds are greatly improved for selecting individuals who can catch on quick, figure things out on their own, and are able to meet or exceed performance expectations sooner.
