# Cognify test - practice tests and free example test questions

What is the Cognify Test?

The Cognify test is a game based type of psychometric testing developed by Revelian now  Criteria. It includes 6 -7 types of timed mini tests. Each test is timed at around 3 to 5 minutes and looks like a basic video game.

The Cognify test moves away from the question/answer based style of standard psychometric tests.  Instead, it uses game based tests to measure your abstract, verbal and numerical reasoning. This means that you no longer have a series of questions on the screen and no calculator or paper pad is necessary.

You are expected to follow the instructions carefully as you start each test or game and work as quickly as you can.

# The theory behind the Cognify Test

The Cognify Test model is based on the Cattell-Horn-Carroll theory of the structure of human cognitive abilities.

The theory combines concepts like fluid and crystallised intelligence and the three-stratum model of intelligence.  It has aided the evolution of the psychometric approach in understanding human cognitive characteristics by employing advanced statistical techniques like factor analysis.

# What to expect in the Cognify Test

1. 1.    Problem Solving:

In problem solving the test assesses your ability to quickly learn, adapt and solve problems.

This measures your ‘fluid intelligence:’ the ability to see a problem for the first time and find out how to solve it without any prior knowledge.

1. 2.    Numerical Reasoning:

In numerical reasoning the test assesses your ability to understand numerical concepts, work with numbers and use formulas to solve problems.

1. 3.    Verbal Knowledge

In verbal knowledge the test measures your knowledge of the English language – focusing on spelling, grammar and identification of errors in text.

## Timer

Each of the tests in the Cognify set of games is timed at 3 or 5 minutes.

# What to expect in Problem Solving tests:

The Cognify Test has three mini tests measuring your problem solving skills:

• Gridlock
• Resemble
• Short Cuts

### The ‘Gridlock’ test

In this mini test you need to solve a number of consecutive grid based puzzle games as quickly as you can.

There is generally a central grid and you have to fit the given figures in (rotate, drag and drop) to complete the grid.

### The ‘Resemble’ test

In this mini test you will be presented with a figure in the left section and generally a simple ‘angle of rotation’ value given beneath it, for example: 180o or 90o.

All you have to do is mentally rotate the figure on the left by the angle indicated and recreate the resultant figure in a central grid on the right.

### The ‘Short Cuts’ test

In this mini test you are asked to move a particular ball and move it to a destination indicated by stars. You are supposed to move the target ball to the destination using the fewest moves as quickly as possible.

# What to expect in the Numerical ability tests:

The Cognify Test has two mini tests measuring your numerical ability:

• Numbubbles
• Tally Up

### The ‘Numbubbles’ test

This mini test displays a target number and a number of bubbles with simple equations.

### The ‘Tally Up’ test

This mini test displays two sections with numbers (appearing as tokens) in each frame. Your task is to decide which frame has a higher value of numbers (tokens) or both frames might be of equal value.

# What to Expect in Verbal knowledge tests:

In the Cognify Test you will have two mini tests measuring your verbal knowledge:

• Proof It
• Pop Up

### The Proof It test

In this mini test you are presented with series of texts that include grammatical errors such as punctuation errors, missing words, misspelled words and grammatical errors.

Your task is to identify all grammatical errors in each text in 1 minute.
