Score Reports

Each individual is given a percentile ranking, a relative performance metric that indicates how the individual scored in relation to others who have taken the test. For example, a percentile ranking of 65 means that an individual scored better than 65% of the group on which the test was normed.

Positive Candidate Experience

The GAME’s fun and engaging mini-games measure the key components of cognitive aptitude, all within just 5 or 6 minutes. Job applicants can play the games on any device, from mobile phones and tablets to desktop computers. This frictionless assessment makes it easier to test candidates up front in the hiring process while creating a brand-positive experience for your candidates. Incorporating the GAME into your hiring process allows you to gather predictive insights on your talent pool while cultivating a positive image for your employer brand.

Validity Information

The GAME has been extensively validated, demonstrating that the test is highly predictive of job performance for a wide variety of jobs. Results from the GAME are also highly correlated (r=0.70) with the CCAT, Criteria’s leading cognitive aptitude test.
