Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory

What’s Included

The first measure of reasoning ability designed to predict real-world performance in a business setting, the Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory evaluates two kinds of reasoning: qualitative and quantitative. Qualitative reasoning involves using data visualization, logic, and verbal information, and quantitative reasoning involves using mathematical and spatial information. Considering these two types of reasoning together gives organizations a clear sense of how candidates will solve problems on the job.

Test Reasoning Styles

While some roles call for people to focus on solving the problems in front of them, others require prioritizing which problems to solve in the first place. Many roles demand a mix of these two approaches. Designed for use at any job level, the Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory defines individual problem-solving style so organizations can understand how candidates are likely to meet the cognitive demands of a given role.
