Cognitive aptitude, sometimes called general intelligence, is the single most accurate predictor of employee success. Criteria's employment aptitude tests provide you with a rapid and precise way of measuring the abilities required to succeed in nearly every occupation.
Research shows that cognitive aptitude tests are the best predictor of job success: twice as predictive as job interviews, three times as predictive as experience, and four times as predictive as education level.
