SHL Verbal, Numerical and Inductive Reasoning Tests

SHL ability tests (sometimes referred to as “aptitude tests”) are designed to assess the candidates’ Verbal Reasoning and Numerical Reasoning skills, at four distinct job roles.

An Inductive Reasoning Test is also available for graduate and managerial roles. Also known as an “Abstract or Logical Reasoning Test”; it is used to measure the candidates’ logical thinking and problem solving capabilities.

SHL tests use random generation, so that each candidate receives a unique assessment to complete. With literally millions of permutations, you can be confident that candidates will always receive a unique set of questions. At the same time a complex calibration process ensures that each aptitude test has equivalent measurement properties.
