About SHL Verify Interactive

There's been a shift in the psychometric testing market which started with the introduction of gamified assessments. SHL is one test publisher trying to improve the candidate assessment process. This has led to SHL introducing the 'Interactive Verify' series.

What is SHL Verify Interactive?

SHL Verify Interactive is SHL's new test series. It attemps to leave the traditional assessments behind and move them into the modern world, with a format that is candidate-centered.

The SHL Verify Interactive series attempts to make the test experience more fun and engaging, whilst trying to replicate the tasks the successful candidate might be expected to perform in their new role.

Traditional assessments would not require the candidate to interact with the on-screen question/answer in ways other than selecting which of the answer options they believed to be correct.

SHL Verify Interactive now brings the questions to life and adds an element of interactivity (hence the name!) that wasn't there before.

Now candidates will be expected to:

  • Drag appointments into a calendar
  • Adjust pie chart percentages
  • Colour different sections of a shape

These are just a few of the new tasks you will have to complete in SHL's new 'Verify Interactive' series.

The different types of Verify Interactive tests

We've briefly mentioned how SHL Verify Interactive differs from the traditional forms of psychometric tests, so now let's take a closer look:

Numerical Reasoning (Verify Interactive)

SHL Verify Interactive have two types of numerical tests: numerical reasoning and numerical calculation.

SHL Verify Interactive numerical reasoning focuses more on your ability to analyse numerical data. You will encounter a lot more charts (pie, bar etc.) and be asked to manipulate these charts in order to present the correct answer.

Numerical Calculation (Verify Interactive)

Numerical calculation will focus on quick maths, with more tasks centred around accounting and auditing.

One question may require you to handle refunds/receipts, then the next question could ask you to put a seemingly random number of letters and numbers into the right sequence.

Inductive Reasoning (Verify Interactive)

SHL's Verify Interactive inductive reasoning will test the same ablities as traditional inductive reasoning tests but, instead of a set of answer options to choose from, you will have to create the correct answer yourself.

You may be given a sequence of shapes that follow a pattern, it will be your job to analyse the sequence to work out what the next shape should look like.

You will then have to manipulate the answer shape to look how you think the correct answer should look - this would be done by clicking the different segments of the shape to change it's colour.

Deductive Reasoning (Verify Interactive)

The deductive reasoning test will analyse your ability to draw logical conclusions from data provided to you.

An example of a task you may face here is the aforementioned calendar schedule. You may be presented with a selection of availability dates/rules that you must follow to place your meetings in the correct order.

How can I practise SHL Verify Interactive tests?

Unfortunately for candidates, practise tests for SHL Verify Interactive are limited. You will struggle to be able to find practise tests that allow you to try out this new interactive format.

Currently, we cover SHL's standard non-interactive tests, but do not yet have suitable material for the 'Verify Interactive' series.

If you are scheduled to face a 'Verify Interactive' test, then we would reccommend candidates to ensure they are familiar with the format by browsing the SHL website where they promote their new test style.

Note: AssessmentDay and its products are not affiliated with SHL. Our practice tests are only for candidates who are practising for SHL tests; we do not sell tests for employee selection.
