Inductive reasoning is the ability to identify patterns, solve problems and apply logical thinking. Inductive reasoning is a major facet of general cognitive ability, the strongest overall predictor of job performance. As a result, inductive reasoning tests are powerful predictors of performance at work, especially in combination with other aptitude tests.

The I-ARA measures inductive reasoning, the ability to identify patterns, solve problems and apply logical thinking. The I-ARA presents candidates with a series of logical sequences, requiring candidates to inductively identify the underlying pattern and select the next diagram in the sequence.

The Inductive Adaptive Reasoning Assessment (I-ARA) is the latest development in aptitude testing technology. The I-ARA uses computer adaptive testing to increase accuracy, reduce administration time and improve candidate experience. The I-ARA’s adaptive testing technology tailors question difficulties to the candidate’s performance, honing in on the candidates level of ability. Candidates are never bored by easy questions, or stressed out by overly difficult questions. Instead, every candidate’s test is challenging and engaging, but not overwhelming.

The I-ARA consists of 16 questions and takes around 10 minutes to complete, with a maximum time limit of 40 seconds per question.

The I-ARA’s adaptive testing protocol enables its use at every level of recruitment. Because the I-ARA’s question bank contains hundreds of questions of varying difficulty, candidates at every ability level can be tested, from entry level staff to senior managers.
