About

The Wonderlic Hay Aptitude Test Battery helps employers screen candidates for jobs which require a high attention to detail, such as bookkeepers, data entry operators, cashiers, order entry processors, and tellers. In these jobs, even a small mistake can cause many problems, so it is very important to employers that prospective employees can work quickly and competently with alphabetical and numerical detail.

The HAY Aptitude test battery is made up of 1 pretest (to “warm-up” and calm pre-test anxiety) and 3 smaller tests. Each of the three tests may be given alone or all the tests may be used together. The test is taken on paper.

4-Minute Number Series Completion Test

On this test you will be required to identify the logic behind a sequence of numbers and complete the next item in the sequence. The Number Series Completion Test is a very popular numerical reasoning test and is also seen on other Wonderlic tests, such as the Wonderlic Cognitive Ability and the SLE.

4-Minute Number Perception Test

Your accuracy, precision, and speed skills will be measured on the Number Perception test. You will be presented with two columns of number sequences. In each row, you will be asked to determine if the number sequence in the first column is identical to the number sequence appearing in the second column.

4-Minute Name Finding Test

On the Name Finding Test, once again your accuracy, precision, and speed skills will be measured. You will be presented with two columns of names of fictitious people. In each row, you will be asked to determine whether the name in the first column is identical to the name appearing in the second column.
