PI Midlantic offers a powerful Cognitive Assessment (CA) via the Predictive Index. This assessment measures general cognitive adaptability, known in the scientific community as "g". The combination of the PI Behavioral Assessment (right person, right role), skills and experience, and the PI Cognitive Assessment as a part of pre-employment testing will significantly increase the likelihood of a successful hire. You will gain insight into the candidate’s ability to learn, adapt, solve problems and handle the mental demands of the position. The results give you a recommendation on hiring based on the job requirements.

Cognitive Assessment and Behavioral Assessment can account for up to 50% of the hiring puzzle.

Easy Online Administration

Users will be to administer the CA simultaneously with the Behavioral Assessment (BA). Once assessments are completed, full reports will be generated for printing or sharing via email. Candidate results are also archived to be searched at discretion.

What is the PI Cognitive Assessment?

The PI Cognitive Assessment is designed to provide an approximation of the general cognitive ability, also known as general mental ability, of a candidate.

What Does the PI Cognitive Assessment Predict?

Almost a century of cognitive ability assessment research indicates that general mental ability (or ‘g’) is the single best predictor of training success and job performance.

Why? General cognitive ability assessments like the CA assess a person’s learning ability – the capacity to learn quickly, absorb new knowledge, and understand and process complex information. People with higher scores tend to be faster at “catching on”, “figuring things out”, and “making sense of things.” This means they are able to execute and perform while others are still learning.

In addition to learning ability, the CA provides information about a person’s capacity to identify and solve problems, make short and long-term plans, think strategically, and adapt to changing demands or unexpected situations. All of these components increase a person’s likelihood of on-the-job success as they indicate they will excel at making decisions, solving problems, and incorporating different pieces of information together to identify obstacles and reach solutions.
