How are organisations to select the right people with the appropriate professional and intellectual ability in an ever-tighter labour market, which is furthermore becoming increasingly global? To be able to make a good comparison between candidates with different nationalities, cultural backgrounds, education and diplomas, the use of good intelligence tests has become more important than ever. Connector Ability can help you to reduce all sorts of dissimilarities to actual differences in intelligence, without the influence of such matters as language or cultural background.
Candidates’ intelligence (also called cognitive abilities) predicts the ease and speed with which they will be able to solve new problems and can master new information. That is why it gives a good picture of how the person will deal with certain problems in the job in question.
Connector Ability is an online intelligence test that measures the G factor: the general intelligence factor. What makes Connector Ability unique are the additional features that often do not appear in traditional tests in one or more aspects:
Connector Ability was developed by PI Company (test provider) in conjunction with the Dutch University of Twente. A number of top 500 organisations, government bodies and minority organisations also helped with its development. This not only guarantees a test that meets the highest quality requirements, but also one that is compatible with working practice. During the development of the test much attention was paid to researching and guaranteeing that differences in such matters as language and culture would have no relevant effect on the test result.
The adaptive nature of the test means that the level of the test is altered to suit the candidate. The level of each question depends on the answer to the previous one. This means that each candidate is presented with a unique set of questions. The items are precisely challenging enough for each candidate: not too difficult and not too easy.
Because language and culture have no relevant effect on the result of the test, it is suitable for universal application. What is more, it makes it possible to compare everyone fairly.
International diplomas are often difficult to compare. Connector Ability makes it possible to compare international candidates both professionally and against one and the same benchmark. That enables the right candidates to actually be selected.
