Aon smartPredict Challenges Practice Guide [2024]

## What is Aon smartPredict Assessment?

Aon’s smartPredict assessment is comprised of 4 gamified challenges - Switch, Grid, Digit, and Motion challenges. These “games” are short, each of them lasting between 5 to 9 minutes.

### switchChallenge Practice Question

The switchChallenge, also known as the cut-e Scales sx, evaluates your deductive-logical thinking skills using abstract figures. These figures undergo a sequence change via a funnel or operator. Typically, you have 6 minutes to answer as many questions as possible, although some versions of the test allow only 3 minutes.

Each question presents you with two (and sometimes three in more challenging levels) rows of symbols. Your task is to identify the correct operator that accounts for the alteration in the sequence of the symbols.

To grasp this challenge more effectively, it's beneficial to review a sample question and its explanation, as provided in our switch challenge practice test.

Question: Which operator is needed?

The explanation provided earlier details that the operator, comprising four numbers, rearranges the symbols in the top row into a new sequence in the bottom row. Each number in the operator corresponds to the original position of the symbol directly below it before the rearrangement. To solve this, you must identify the correct operator (from three options) that reordered the symbols following this rule.

Understanding the Switch Challenge solely from text can be challenging. However, engaging in hands-on practice significantly simplifies the task. It's important to note that the Switch Challenge increases in difficulty with each level, presenting more complex scenarios. The example given is from the first level of questions. Our practice materials are designed to help you master all levels of the Switch Challenge.

### gridChallenge

The Grid Challenge is designed to evaluate executive attention skills. This test includes a variety of tasks that blend memory and spatial orientation challenges.

Initially, you're shown a grid with dots, one of which is highlighted. Your job is to memorize the location of this dot. Next, you'll face a quick question about basic symmetry – you'll need to determine if a given image is symmetrical. Following this, the grid reappears with a different highlighted dot. The test progresses in this manner, alternating between showing 3 to 5 dots and interspersing questions about symmetry and rotation. The objective is to accurately answer the questions while keeping track of the dots' locations and the sequence in which they appear.

The upcoming video will provide a demonstration of our interactive grid challenge practice test:

### digitChallenge

The Digit Challenge is an assessment of fundamental mathematical abilities, focusing primarily on the three basic operations: addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Rather than presenting direct questions, this challenge offers a unique approach: participants are given the solution first and then tasked with filling in the missing numbers to complete the equation.

### motionChallenge - Coming Soon

The Motion Challenge evaluates your capability for planning. This interactive test bears a strong resemblance to the classic "Rush Hour" sliding blocks game. Currently, we are not providing preparatory material for this challenge, but efforts are underway to soon equip you with appropriate practice resources.
