The format of Picked’s diagrammatic reasoning test
Picked’s platform allows you to easily administer a diagrammatic reasoning test once candidates have applied. After this, the applicant will have 2–3 days to complete them.
Once they have completed the test, you will receive a notification and a report which details their raw score, as well as how they compare against a benchmark. The benchmark will either be based on the performance of other candidates for the role, or the historical scores of employees in a similar position at a comparative level.
The questions are presented in the form of patterns or sequences, which candidates must use to determine the next box in the sequence.
The questions consist of one correct answer and three distractors – an answer that is purposefully similar to the correct answer but is incorrect, which makes the test more challenging and helps measure a candidate’s skills more accurately.
The test does not have negative scoring, so candidates will get a point for each correct answer, but will not be marked down for any incorrect answers.
