LUTZ, Fla., April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Employers looking to evaluate reasoning ability and problem-solving skills in job candidates have a new tool when making hiring decisions—the Test of General Reasoning Ability™ (TOGRA™). Written by respected author Cecil R. Reynolds, PhD, the TOGRA is ideal for use in human resources and selection environments as it can be administered in a group setting, saving precious evaluation and decision-making time.
Requiring just 16 minutes for administration and 2-3 minutes for scoring, the TOGRA is useful when evaluating potential new hires to determine their ability to reason and problem-solve under pressure. A rapid, reliable, and easily obtained measure of general reasoning, the TOGRA provides an overall estimate of mental skill. The TOGRA offers a wider variety of item content and greater test score stability than competing measures. The gender, racial, and religious bias of the TOGRA is minimal, making it ideal for use in hiring. Consisting of items that assess verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills, the TOGRA uses tasks that are both inductive and deductive in nature. Two equivalent forms enable users to retest or monitor progress without the concern of practice effects.
Published by PAR, Inc., the TOGRA can be used with individuals age 10-75 years to more fully assess reasoning abilities and problem-solving under pressure. The TOGRA will soon be available on PARiConnect, PAR's online assessment platform for online administration, scoring, and interpretation.
