Short Cognitive Ability Test: The Bridge Ability Online

The Bridge Ability Online is a short online ability test (IQ test) with three parts: numerical ability, verbal ability, and abstract ability. Within just 18 minutes, a complete picture of the intelligence (cognitive ability) of your candidate is measured.

How does it work

A short online ability test is a "fast" intelligence test that can be used for issues related to selection, recruitment, or career planning. It allows you to screen large groups of candidates without any problems, and you won't make your selection on the basis of the CV alone. Because this way allows you to discover talent during the pre-selection, you can invite fewer candidates, which saves you time and money.

  • You can order The Bridge Ability Online for your candidates.
  • Available at MBO (intermediate), HBO (bachelor), and WO (university) level.
  • Select 'Cognitive Ability Test' and choose the level (MBO/HBO/WO) from the order page.

With a short ability test, you can determine whether your candidate or employee is at an MBO, HBO, or WO level. This way, you can see whether it makes sense to invest in training for an employee, or you can measure during the selection or recruitment process whether a candidate has the desired level.

  • The short ability test measures three ability tests: verbal ability, numerical ability, and logical thinking.
  • Duration: 18 minutes.
  • Available in 20 languages, including Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish.
