Core Abilities Test

Pearson Talent Lens

A quick online assessment of general abilities: verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning

With more application forms and CVs for an average job than ever before, managers don’t need more applicants, they need screening tools to quickly identify the best ones. More effective than a phone screen, the Core Abilities Assessment measures an individual’s verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning skills – the building blocks for success in any job. The score provides insight into someone’s ability to learn and perform on the job. Core Abilities can help highlight the applicants who should advance to the next stage or interview.

Who is it for?

Use the Core Abilities Assessment to screen staff in all industry sectors at the following levels:

  • Apprentices
  • Retail Assistants
  • Office Managers
  • Customer Service roles
  • Call centre staff
  • Frontline Supervisors and New Managers

Entry level staff and individual contributors – 15 minutes

Core Abilities Assessment is an online test derived from the highest quality items from the DAT for Personnel and Career Assessment (DAT for PCA 1991). A scored report is automatically produced.
