Cognitive ability and reasoning are critical to work performance and handling the demands of the job. The Applied Reasoning Test for Vocational and Technical roles is an ability test that measures an individual’s ability to reason, problem solve, learn new concepts, and understand complex relationships. It has been carefully designed to be highly relevant for hourly (clerical, administrative, labor, vocational, and paraprofessional) jobs that typically require a high school or vocational/technical degree, vocational or technical training of one to three years, or an apprenticeship. Extensive research and development has been invested to ensure the test is job-related and represents the type of reasoning and cognitive abilities required of employees to perform the job.
