About

The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT) is a general pre-employment aptitude test that measures a candidate's aptitude, problem-solving abilities, skill learning capabilities, and critical thinking. CCAT is known to have a high correlation with various cognitive aptitude tests, for instance, the Wonderlic Personnel Test (WPT).


How Is the CCAT Constructed?

The CCAT test consists of 50 questions and has a 15-minute time limit. If it sounds impossible to you, don't worry, very few people manage to finish the entire test within the time limit. The CCAT has three question categories - math and logic, verbal ability, and spatial reasoning. 


CCAT Test Results

CCAT scores are determined by a raw score, which is simply the number of questions answered correctly. This score can be translated into a percentile in order to indicate the examinee's result compared to others. The raw score is comprised of three sub-category results - math and logic questions, verbal ability questions, and spatial reasoning questions.

Each position has a suggested range of raw scores, and once your score is within that suggested range, it means that you are competent for the position.
