Cognitive Abilities Assessment

Cognitive ability tests assess abilities involved in thinking (e.g., reasoning, perception, memory, verbal and mathematical ability, and problem solving). Such tests pose questions designed to estimate applicants' potential to use mental processes to solve work-related problems or to acquire new job knowledge.

Orica administers the Cognitive Abilities test online. It is well-standardized and contains items reliably scored. Examples of item formats include multiple choice, sentence completion, short answer, or true-false.

How can you prepare for the Cognitive Abilities Assessment?

There’s no real way of preparing for these assessments. When you do complete the test, ensure you’re in a quiet place where you can concentrate and your internet connection is reliable. Practice tests may be available through various test prep companies.
