The General Cognitive Ability Test comprises assessments of verbal, numerical, spatial and abstract reasoning ability, which scores are combined to generate a General Cognitive Ability score, known as “g”. This resulting score reflects a person’s ability to solve problems, extract and apply information, learn new skills, and deal with complex situations. A person with a higher score is more likely to be a quick learner and good performer as compared to a person with a lower score.
Word Analogies, Spelling, Grammar.
Number series, Numerical deductions.
Object Folding, Spatial rotations.
Abstract Reasoning Ability:
Matrix Reasoning, Visual inferences.
For every candidate completing the General Cognitive Ability Test, you will be able to download or print a detailed test report. The first page of the test report grants a quick overview of the candidate's overall performance on the test. The results of the candidate are compared to a norm group in order to get the percentile population score. For example, If a candidate has a score of 70, he/she scored as well or better than 70 percent of the 5,000 people who were part of our 2013 test norming study. You may choose to compare a candidate's results to the entire norm group or to a specified part of the norm group.

An exploratory factor analysis was conducted of the validation study dataset. Results are interpreted through a scree plot below, which indicates that the best factorial structure for the test is that of only one factor. This is consistent with the unidimensional nature of GCA (General Cognitive Ability). Therefore, the predictive validity of the GCA construct can be generalized to the scores of this test.
The General Cognitive Ability Test has an appropriate level of internal consistency reliability, indicated by the following coefficients:
Cronbach's α: 0.83
McDonald's ω: 0.84
