Cognitive Assessment

The PI Cognitive Assessment™ offers a proven and scientific way to measure natural learning ability and to reliably predict job performance

A data-driven approach to

Predicting learning ability

You know that your new recruit is behaviourally ideally suited to the role. But how long will it take them to learn the ropes? Will they be fazed, stretched, or perhaps bored?

Research shows that cognitive ability is the number one predictor of job performance. The PI Cognitive Assessment is a timed assessment which measures a person’s general cognitive ability. It objectively predicts how quickly a person learns and processes new and complex information, and how adaptable they are likely to be in any role.

In just 12 minutes, you’ll have more insights into an individual’s likelihood of job performance and success than you would after a long interview or a standard aptitude test. This powerful assessment will help you find the best possible person-job match to ensure that your new employee is sufficiently stimulated without the danger of burning out.


Scientifically validated yet simple

How does the PI Cognitive Assessment work?


The assessment

50 multiple-choice questions are dynamically selected from a balanced pool of verbal, numerical and abstract items, which makes each survey unique



The timed assessment takes just 12 minutes to complete and removes gut feeling and the need for a lengthy assessment process



The cognitive score is instantly available in report format to allow for easy comparison of candidates and against a norm group



The assessment has been reviewed following the in-depth standards defined by the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations’ (EFPA) Test Review Model


Other highlights

The assessment is culture neutral and available in over 60 languages so survey takers can complete the assessment in their mother tongue

The PI Cognitive Assessment

What is the business value for our clients?

Use the powerful insights into a person’s general cognitive ability to make even better people decisions:

  • Complete the PI Job Assessment™ to set the desired complexity of any position, then objectively compare the demands with an individual’s cognitive score to ensure a good match
  • Find a candidate that is sufficiently stimulated but not fazed by the cognitive demands of a role to avoid burnout and ensure that your employees remain engaged
  • Pair the PI Cognitive with the PI Behavioral Assessment™ for the best prediction of job match, both cognitively and behaviourally, and confidently place the right person in the right job
  • These assessment types are proven predictors of training and job success across all positions and industries
  • This powerful tool is used for candidate selection and recruitment by HR-departments and managers. It’s ideal for clarifying and confirming the cognitive capabilities of an individual
  • Identify future potentials and don’t risk losing valuable employees with a high cognitive level because they feel under-stimulated
  • The rate at which a person can learn and process complex information is particularly important for agile organisations where change is constant
  • Streamline your recruitment and save time by using objective people metrics as part of your candidate pre-screening process

With this simple but effective data-driven framework, you can apply science to uncover who will learn quickly and, if necessary, independently, and who is likely to meet and exceed expectations.

With the PI Cognitive Assessment you’ll always know if a candidate has the right problem-solving abilities for the job
