Verbal reasoning test guide
The verbal reasoning test is one of the most commonly used psychometric tests (or aptitude tests) to measure candidates’ suitability and potential. There are several types of verbal reasoning tests.
The easier verbal reasoning test, such as sentence completion and analogies, measures your ability to use the English language in the workplace. The more complex and difficult verbal reasoning test is most frequently used to assess graduates, professionals and managers. It includes reading passages and measures your ability to understand verbal information, think logically about written information, accurately draw logical conclusions, produce written reports, and convey information to others in a clear and simple manner.
What do employers seek to learn from your verbal reasoning score?
The result of your verbal reasoning test assists employers to discover the extent to which you can:
- identify critical business-related issues and logically draw conclusions from business-related reading material such as company manuals and reports
- produce clearly written organisational reports and documents
- articulate business-related issues in a clear and simple manner to colleagues, managers and customers.
