The SHL Verify Range of Ability Tests comprises reasoning tests designed for administration online and to be resistant to cheating and piracy of content. SHL Verify consists of two stages:
The SHL Verify Ability Test (VAT) is intended for administration online and unsupervised. These tests are drawn from an item bank that provides different but equivalent tests administered randomly to candidates. This feature has been designed to minimise the ability of candidates to access answers to tests, and to reduce the ability of candidates to collude through the exchange of answers to items.
The SHL Verify Verification Test (VVT) is a short test that has been designed to offer an equivalent and supervised follow-up assessment to the VAT. This test checks the consistency of scores from the first unsupervised online test and flags inconsistent scores for follow up.
The Verify Range of Ability Tests currently comprises 3 individual measures of reasoning; Verbal, Numerical and Inductive Reasoning. The 3 tests can be administered either separately or in any combination driven by the requirements for an assessment.
Inductive reasoning extends the range of assessments available from the Verify range to include the ability to work with problems that are novel and that require individuals to work from first principles in order to reach a solution.
