Verbal Reasoning Test

time-recorded approach to aptitude testing

What is it?

The Verbal Reasoning Test (VRT) is an engaging and innovative assessment of verbal communication in the modern workplace. The Capp VRT assesses a candidate’s aptitude to think logically about written communication in line with how we live our lives in today's world. The test uses dynamic assessment techniques to self-generate questions in line with a person's ability.

How does it work?

Some roles may require faster working with less emphasis on verbal accuracy, whereas others may require perfect verbal accuracy within slower timeframes. The Capp VRT has questions that test at every level, whilst our proprietary scoring algorithm accounts for the speed, accuracy, and difficulty of each questions, allowing precise measurement and greater candidate differentiation. Our VRT is set apart from other aptitude tests by our progressive time-recorded approach, rather than time-limited, to provide the best candidate experience.

When should I use it?

The Capp VRT is relevant for any role where it is important to interpret and understand written information. Roles that may test for this capability include administration staff, creative and marketing jobs, HR, journalism, PR and many more. However, most employers will require this capability to a greater or lesser degree within any role.

What is the impact?

  • 97% of candidates found the Verbal Reasoning Test innovative because it is time-recorded not time-limited
  • 89% of candidates felt under less pressure because of the Verbal Reasoning Test's time-recorded approach
  • 0% adverse impact, levelling the playing field for all candidates
