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).

What "The Atlantic" Says About Our CCAT Test

Testing is sufficiently widespread today that a cottage industry has developed to help people prepare; perusing the site of one such firm, JobTestPrep, I saw sample exams for jobs at Amazon, Ford, UPS, and others. Like Vista, many companies now subject not only entry-level applicants but also managers to testing…The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test, for instance, measures problem-solving, critical thinking, learning ability, and attention to detail…I signed up with JobTestPrep and took a sample of the CCAT online.

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 many different types of questions in the categories - math, logic, verbal ability, and spatial/abstract reasoning. Throughout the test, all topics are mixed together, and the questions' difficulty increases as you advance. 

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.
