Aon smartPredict Challenges Practice Tests [2020]

## 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 (AKA cut-e Scales sx) measures your deductive-logical thinking through abstract figures that change their order through a funnel or operator. You have 6 minutes (sometimes 3) to solve as many questions as you can.

In each level, you are presented with two rows of symbols (sometimes three rows in more difficult levels). Your goal is to choose the correct operator that made the change in the order of the symbols.

The best way to understand this challenge is to see a sample question and its explanation (from our switch challenge practice test):

Question: Which operator is needed?

As stated in the explanation above, the operator, consisted of four digits, changes the order of the symbols that appear in the upper row to a new order in the lower row. Each digit represents the previous position of the symbol underneath it, before it was changed. You need to choose the correct operator (out of three alternatives) that changed the order of the symbols according to that rule.

The Switch Challenge is not easy to understand just by reading information. However, practicing the challenge helps greatly, making it a lot easier than it sounds. It is vital to know, that the Switch Challenge can become more difficult as the test progresses, showing you much more complicated questions. The example shown above is of the first level of questions, and in our practice material you can prepare for all the Switch Challenge levels.

### gridChallenge

The gridChallenge aims to measure executive attention. The challenges throughout the test are comprised of several tasks combined together - memory questions and spatial orientation questions.

You are first shown a grid of dots, with one dot highlighted, and your task is to remember the dot’s location. Then you are shown a basic symmetry question – “Is It Symmetrical?” which you need to answer fast. After that, you are again presented with the original grid, now highlighting another dot. This challenge goes on, showing you between 3 to 5 dots, with symmetry and rotation questions between them. Your goal is to answer all the questions correctly while remembering the dots’ location and order of appearance.

In the following video, you will get a demonstration from our gamified grid challenge practice test:

### digitChallenge

The digitChallenge, or Digit Challenge, measures basic math skills - four operations, not much more. In fact, it is only about addition, subtraction and multiplication. However, instead of being asked straight-up questions, you are shown an answer and you need to complete the missing figures.

Take a look for yourself how it goes:

### motionChallenge - Coming Soon

The Motion Challenge measures your planning abilities. The gamified test is very similar to the old sliding blocks game called "Rush Hour". At the moment we do not offer preparation for this challenge, but we are working on getting you the right practice very soon.

## How to Prepare for the Switch, Grid, Digit, and Motion Challenges?

The Aon smartPredict PrepPack should give you a heads up going into the online assessment. You will get an in-depth look into the different challenges, with practice tests and study guides in all subjects (motion challenge coming very soon).

Take your time, because preparing is essential, as these challenges are nothing you have ever encountered before.

The PrepPack includes:

• A new interactive Digit Challenge practice with an infinite number of scenarios
• Switch Challenge practice test with questions in varying difficulty levels
• New interactive Grid Challenge practice - you will not find this anywhere else
• The Switch Challenge and Grid Challenge PDF study guides
• 11 Extra practice tests to sharpen your math and reasoning skills
• Motion Challenge practice cooming soon

Familiarizing yourself with the test in advance immensely increases your chances of passing it. Practicing similar gamified questions will give you a very big advantage of your competition!
