Wonderlic Personnel Test (Cognitive Ability)

The Wonderlic Cognitive Ability test formerly referred to as the Wonderlic Personnel test, comes in two different formats: WPT-Q - Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Pretest & WPT-R - Wonderlic Personnel test.

The WPT-Q is the abbreviated version of the test, which can be taken from a remote online location (such as at home.)  This version of the CAT is a pre-qualifier and helps companies narrow the bank of applications before inviting candidates to partake in interviews. This test contains 30 questions, which must be answered within just 8 minutes. Additionally, the test questions focus on the cognitive aspects of the job, including problem-solving, learning, and adaption skills.

The full test is called the WPT-R, which follows the same format as the WPT-Q but is only administered on-site. This test contains 50 questions to be answered within 12 minutes.

Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam (SLE)

The Wonderlic SLE is used as part of the recruitment process in universities across the United States, to help recruiters better assess your ability to succeed in the chosen program. In many cases, the test is a significant factor in the acceptance process and failure to succeed will result in a rejection letter.

The test scores will measure your math, logic, verbal, and general knowledge. Two variations of the test are the SLE and the SLE-Q. Below you will find a brief overview of each variation:   

  • Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam (SLE) – This test includes 50 questions with a 12-minute time limit.
  • Wonderlic Scholastic Level Exam Quicktest (SLE-Q) – The version of this test differs from the first, in that it contains only 30 questions with an 8-minute time slot.
