Wonderlic Advanced Skills Test vs. Basic Skills Test

The Wonderlic Basic Skills Test (WBST) was created to evaluate candidates for pre-employment screening and for the college application processes at a basic level. However, it has been recognized that some work positions and degree programs require candidates to possess a higher level of knowledge. The Advanced Skills Test was created to meet these needs. The questions on this test are on a more advanced level.

For example, in the language section, there are no context clues or other forms of assistance, unlike on the WBST. The math section includes problems which are more difficult to solve. Another example is one has to simplify and combine algebraic equations rather than just solving simple equations.
