Why should we take the accreditation on Reasoning Analysis course?

We specialise in helping HR professionals and Recruiters who are frustrated with poor recruitment decisions, which result in the high turnover of employees and all the associated costs this brings. Our Reasoning Analysis draws on the predictive power of aptitude tests to provide organisations with accurate and precise reports. Using our Reasoning Analysis, organisations ensure they hire top talent with the necessary cognitive ability to succeed in the role.

Attending reasoning training supports recruiters to learn how to effectively evaluate candidates who have the reasoning capacity equal to the job requirements. A reasoning accreditation will equip you with the knowledge to test aptitude skills and measure cognitive ability

Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the nine reasoning tests 
  • Understand how to select and administer the Reasoning Analysis tool
  • Confidently interpret and debrief the Reasoning Analysis tool
  • Understand how to apply the Reasoning Analysis tool to make informed and non-bias hiring decisions.
  • Connect the Reasoning Analysis tool to Extended DISC® methodology for more detailed analysis and reliable recruitment decisions

Extensive research demonstrates that cognitive ability tests, like our Reasoning Analysis tool, are the best predictors of success as they have the highest correlation to job performance. Candidates with strong cognitive ability can perform tasks more accurately and efficiently, make effective decisions, and use their reasoning skills to solve complex problems. Companies commonly use cognitive tests during the pre-employment process due to their predictive value. Candidates that achieve higher scores are more productive and require less training resulting in savings of time and costs during the on-boarding of the employee. The tests improve retention, decrease training time and help avoid costly mis-hires.

Learn How to Assess Cognitive Skills

A Reasoning Analysis is an effective way to assess cognitive skills. Reasoning assessments are powerful predictors of job performance and help confirm the selection of candidates with the highest chance of success during the recruitment process. Reasoning tests empower recruiters, hr professionals and business owners to make informed decisions when filing positions. Incorporating Reasoning tests during the recruitment phase will help reduce recruitment costs and support informed people decisions using non-bias assessment technology. Your business will have a higher chance of increasing productivity, overall performance and decreasing employee turnover.

The reasoning course equips recruiters and hr professionals to assess cognitive skills, including the following:

  • Abstract Reasoning- measures an individual's ability to understand different concepts and identify their interrelationships.
  • Logical processing - analyses an individual's ability to understand cause-effect relationships.
  • Spatial reasoning - measures the individual's ability to comprehend visual entities and their components.
  • Social reasoning - measures the individual's general sensitiveness to observe a social phenomenon.
  • Numerical reasoning – measures an individual's ability to spot relationships and patterns in numerical information.
  • Verbal reasoning - measures a person's ability to understand written information, conceptualise it and find causal relationships.
  • Mathematical logical reasoning - evaluates a person's ability to interpret and criticise statistical information.
  • Word Association - measures the ability to rely on written information to understand relationships between different concepts.
  • Visual memory - is the ability to remember and process relevant visual information.

Our reasoning course covers the background of the Reasoning Analysis, how aptitude tests work, how to measure cognitive ability and how to assess cognitive ability using our nine reasoning tests.
