Ability tests are a type of mental reasoning test that assesses people’s fundamental thinking ability. Performance on cognitive ability assessments is highly predictive of people’s ability to solve complex problems, learn new skills and make effective decisions. Because ability tests can go beyond acquired skills to predict performance, and therefore the potential of a candidate, they are often considered an important tool in the sifting process.
