The PI Cognitive Assessment

Predicting future job performance

The PI Cognitive assessment measures the best documented psychological construct in psychology, namely the g-factor of intelligence and there is overwhelming scientific evidence to support the predictive power of the psychometric g. This means that a general cognitive assessment test like the PI Cognitive is one of the best tests, recruiters can use to help them predict future job performance for candidates and co-workers.


The PI Cognitive assessment is a simple, yet effective tool for predicting job performance

The PI Cognitive Assessment provides a single measure of general cognitive ability. General cognitive ability is described as an individual’s ability to adapt, solve problems, absorb, comprehend, and process complex information abilities.

Being able to absorb new information, adapt to changing situations, solve problems, and process complex information are aspects of practically any job. Performance within these areas and pace of learning are strongly associated with successful on-the-job performance. PI Cognitive Assessment provides recruiters with such valuable information about a person’s general cognitive ability.

At Predictio we are delighted that the PI Cognitive Assessment has also gotten this independent, international quality stamp that will provide our clients with extra confidence and security when using the assessment.
While the PI Cognitive Assessment was specifically certified in the Swedish market, the overall assessment was part of a rigorous audit providing evidence for its suitability as a hiring tool in any region.

Thanks to the awesome Predictive Index Science Team for their hard work and dedication in providing all the required documentation and information to the reviewers at DNV-GL.
