Spatial Reasoning Ability Test

Spatial Reasoning Ability Test

The Spatial Reasoning Ability Test measures a candidate's ability to understand and remember the spatial relations among objects. The test items are based on problems of physical spatial nature such as three-dimensional rotations and folding of objects.

This test is useful for selecting candidates for jobs that require working on tasks that require abstract spatial manipulations.

Test properties

Type of test: Ability test

Useful for: Predicting job performance in jobs that require a high spatial ability

Time limit: 30 minutes

Number of test items: 30

What the items measure

Two and three-dimensional rotations:
The ability to determine how an object will look like when rotated.

Object folding:
The ability to determine how an object will look like when parts of it are folded.

Detailed Test Report

For every candidate completing the Spatial Reasoning 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. On the following page of the test report, you may compare the candidate's results with norm groups of 4 different occupations. The results of the candidate are compared to a norm group 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 2,000 people who were part of our 2015 test norming study.

Evidence of Validity

An exploratory factor analysis was conducted on a 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 spatial reasoning tests. Therefore, the predictive validity of this construct can be generalized to the scores of this test.

Evidence of Reliability

The Spatial Reasoning Ability Test has an appropriate level of internal consistency reliability, indicated by the following coefficients:

Cronbach's α: 0.80
McDonald's ω: 0.80
