The SHL assessment provides a fair and objective assessment of your cognitive ability, motives, situational judgment, diagrammatic/verbal/logical reasoning, and interest.  Research has shown that these tests can provide reliable information concerning the future performance and abilities of students as they prepare to delve into their respective career paths.

The set-up of the cognitive ability (numerical, verbal, and other forms of critical reasoning ability) test is designed to also furnish the institution with the most effective, single predictor of students’ performance in academics and related fields.

Other areas captured by the test solution to effectively render a comprehensive detail of student’s capabilities and interests are outlined below;

  1. The verbal reasoning test: This test measures the ability to evaluate the logic of various kinds of arguments. The information presented is relevant to a business environment.  The test emphasizes understanding, using, and evaluating verbal information rather than language usage, spelling, or grammar.  People who perform well on this test tend to have the capacity to readily understand reports and documents.
  2. The numerical reasoning test: This test measures the ability to make correct decisions or inferences from numerical data. The data presented and the tasks set are relevant to a business environment.  The emphasis in these tasks is on understanding and evaluating data rather than on computation.  People who perform well on this test tend to have the capacity to understand numerical data and interpret mathematical information correctly.
