WHAT IS THE CQ?
Evaluate Cognitive Ability to Solve Work-Related Problems
Designed for frontline, entry-level workers, the Cognitive Quotient assesses three aspects of cognitive capacity:
- Language Comprehension – Measures English language skills through word meanings and relationships
- Numerical Skills – Measures the ability to correctly perform calculations using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
- Spatial/Mechanical Skills – Measures problem-solving skills, pattern recognition and the manipulation of 2D & 3D objects
The assessment takes approximately 25-30 minutes. Once completed, a report is automatically generated that contains insight into a candidate’s strengths, feedback on areas for development, training tips, and suggested interview questions.
