Technical competency Assessment

Cognitive intelligence is defined as the combination of verbal, numerical, and spatial abilities which includes visualizing, use of memory, word fluency, verbal relations, perceptual speed, induction, and deduction.

What is Cognitive Ability?

Cognitive Ability is the ability of the brain to carry out core tasks like thinking, memorizing, paying attention, visualizing, and interpreting the surroundings. Together these skills form Crystallized Intelligence and Fluid Intelligence in a person, which in turn forms General Intelligence (Cognitive Ability) in a person.

Effectiveness Of Technical competency Assessment

To make a cognitive assessment effective in choosing the right talent for a job role, it needs to accurately identify candidates from the talent pool who are likely to succeed at performing that job role. Once the assessment has been created for a particular job role, its effectiveness in selecting the right talent in an organization needs to be tested.

To have a cognitive assessment adapt in identifying the right talent we fine-tune the three parameters identified earlier: the assessment means score, difficulty index, and discrimination index.
