Today we’re excited to launch our new internationally-friendly aptitude test, the Universal Cognitive Aptitude Test, or UCAT. The UCAT measures general cognitive aptitude, one of the most predictive factors for job success.
Just like the CCAT, our most popular aptitude test, the UCAT measures critical thinking, problem-solving ability, and logic, all elements of cognitive aptitude. Because the UCAT and the CCAT are measuring the same abilities, they are highly correlated with each other.
What makes the UCAT different is that it deemphasizes verbal ability so that the test is ideal for use with non-native English speakers and international candidates. The UCAT places more of an emphasis on problem-solving, attention to detail, and data interpretation, making it a particularly great assessment for testing quantitative and analytical positions.
The UCAT is a 20-minute test with 40 questions. The test is written in English but can easily be translated into other languages or used as a test for non-native English speakers. Moving forward, we plan to make the UCAT available in other languages – let us know what languages you’d be most interested in using!
