Hogan offers three cognitive tests to help you measure cognitive ability from every angle.

The Hogan Cognitive Reasoning Inventory (HCRI) tests verbal and numerical reasoning to help employers understand how people process information and make decisions. The Numerical scale concerns the ability to process information and to identify patterns and rules in numeric data. The Verbal scale concerns the ability to understand and use words to their desired effect. The HCRI provides a score for each of these scales and a combined overall score, which is more representative of general cognitive ability. The HCRI can be purchased as an add-on to the Candidate Assessment Suite but is not available as a standalone product at this time.

The Hogan Judgment test goes beyond “right” and “wrong” decisions. This cognitive test looks at how people make decisions and assesses their biases to help with decision-making self-awareness. It also tells us about how people tend to react to feedback regarding their decisions. This is important because a large part of leadership is responding appropriately to bad news or finding out a decision was wrong and then using that feedback to improve and make future adjustments.

The Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI) examines business reasoning ability, which includes problem-solving and decision-making. All the HBRI problems are business related and measure the test taker’s ability to use business information to make accurate decisions based on data.
