Capp assessments and how they work

If you are familiar with other publishers such as SHL and Saville Assessment, you might get a shock when you come to take your Capp test. The format of Capp tests differs from most other aptitude test assessments as there is no strict time limit. Instead, the time taken for you to complete the tests is measured. You are free to progress from question to question in your own time. The most commonly used Capp assessments are there numerical, verbal and critical reasoning tests:

What makes a Capp numerical reasoning test special?
Capp numerical reasoning tests are a special mix of various question types that assess different numerical skills. The format of Capp tests differs from most other aptitude test assessments as there is no strict time limit. Instead, the time taken for you to complete the tests is measured. This allows the questions to typically be a lot of numerically challenging or more time-consuming than on other psychometric numerical reasoning tests. They can be most challenging.
- Rank: This question type requires you to determine the correct ranking of variables in the question, typically from highest to lowest. For example, the question may ask you which company makes the most money. You will then have to work out the respective earnings for each company given and rank them accordingly.
- Insert: This question type requires you to input the correct answer directly. This typically increases the difficultly by increasing the potential margin for error. You must give precisely the right answer in order to be correct.
- Pick: This question type requires you to determine which the correct answer from a given list. This is essentially a multiple choice question which is a faimilar staple of the numerical reasoning test types.
Capp's style of questions is quite unique compared with many other test publishers. Each of the 5 types you can expect to encounter during their numerical, verbal and critical reasoning assessments are analysed below:
- Multiple Choice:Simple choice of picking ONE of multiple answers you are presented with.
- Drop-down Multiple Choice:This follows exactly the same logic as a Multiple Choice question, except all of the options available will be revealed to you once you've clicked the drop-down box. This is used when you need to answer multiple questions which utilise the same numerical data or verbal information.
- Rank:This is a format not seen often. Click and drag each of the answer options until you think you've correctly sorted the choices given to you according to the question.
- Text Field:A blank text field is displayed to you and you must enter your answer here as alphanumerical characters. This drastically reduces the chances you have to guess the answer.
- Drag-and-drop:Similar to rank, in that you will be required to sort your answers by clicking and dragging. However, you will not be required to sort via ascending/descending order, but whether each answer option belongs to a certain category or not.
