Understanding the Caliper Assessment

The Caliper Assessment, commonly known as the Caliper Test, stands as a pivotal tool in the recruitment toolbox. This test not just about measuring what a candidate knows, but delving into the core of their cognitive and behavioral nuances.

Holistic Approach: Instead of just scratching the surface, the Caliper dives deep, offering a rounded view of an individual’s strengths, potential, and areas that might need some polishing.

Diverse Questionnaire: With a spectrum of questions, typically between 98 and 180, the test ensures a broad assessment. These questions are categorized systematically, segregating cognitive evaluations from behavioral insights.

Take Your Time: A standout feature of the Caliper is its lack of time constraints, allowing candidates the freedom to be genuine in their responses without the usual rush against the clock.

Beyond Black and White: Shunning the traditional pass/fail paradigm, the Caliper provides rich, detailed insights, painting a comprehensive picture of a candidate’s fit within an organization, their likely interactions with peers, and areas of potential growth.

Spotting the Leaders: A hallmark of the Caliper is its knack for pinpointing budding leaders among candidates, forecasting traits like leadership potential, teamwork ethos, adaptability, and problem-solving prowess.

In a nutshell, the Caliper Assessment isn’t just another test. It’s a sophisticated instrument that gives employers a clearer, more nuanced lens through which to view and understand the multifaceted potential of each candidate.

Caliper Assessment: Question Types & Test Format

The Caliper Test, centered on a person’s personality, consists of one cognitive section and three personality-focused sections. Crafted to offer employers a detailed view of a candidate’s suitability, let’s explore its diverse question types and structure:

Cognitive Insights in the Caliper Test

The Caliper Test checks your thinking abilities using many different kinds of questions. It looks at how well you solve problems, work with numbers, and think in abstract ways. The questions are mainly images based like visual analogies, visual series, and matrix patterns, with a few questions on numerical series. This multifaceted approach ensures a comprehensive evaluation of a candidate’s mental aptitude, critical for role suitability assessments. Lets look at the question types to understand better:

Visual Analogy

Visual analogy questions test your pattern recognition skills. You’ll see two images and need to spot the relationship between them.

Caliper Visual Analogy Sample Question

Caliper Visual Analogy Q 01

  • A:
  • B:
  • C:
  • D:
Correct Answer: B:


By the careful analysis of first part of the problem figure, we find that from to second figure, the larger triangle become small and the small circle become large. In the same manner, from third to fourth figure, the large hexagon becomes small and the small pentagon become large as shown in figure B


Matrices questions test your pattern recognition in grids of shapes or symbols. You’ll find a matrix with a missing element and must identify the pattern to fill it correctly.

Caliper Matrices Sample Question

Caliper Visual Matrices Q 01

  • A:
  • B:
  • C:
  • D:
Correct Answer: D:


The third figure in each row comprises of parts which are not common to the first two figures.

Visual Series

Visual series questions assess your capacity to identify sequential image patterns. You’ll be shown an image sequence and must predict the next one based on the established pattern.

Caliper Visual Series Sample Question

Caliper Visual Series Q 01

  • A:
  • B:
  • C:
  • D:
Correct Answer: D:


Solution Explained:


  • Circle moves clockwise.
  • Broken line shifts counter-clockwise.
  • Straight line rotates 45° clockwise.

Identify: Patterns are:

  • Clockwise circle movement.
  • Counter-clockwise broken line movement.
  • 45° clockwise rotation of straight line.


  • Circle relocates clockwise consistently.
  • Broken line moves counter-clockwise as expected.
  • Straight line's rotation is 45° clockwise.

Apply: For the next image:

  • Circle is one step clockwise from its last position.
  • Broken line shifts one step counter-clockwise.
  • Straight line rotates another 45° clockwise.

Number Series

Number series questions assess your skill in identifying numerical patterns and sequences. You’ll be presented with a series of numbers, and your objective is to decipher the pattern and determine the missing number.

Caliper Number Series Sample Question
Identify the next term in the series: 2, 6, 12, 20, 30...?
  • A:


  • B:


  • C:


  • D:


Correct Answer: B) 42


For complex series, sometimes it helps to examine the differences between terms:

  • 6 − 2 = 4,
  • 12 − 6 = 6,
  • 20 − 12 = 8,
  • 30 − 20 = 10.

We notice that the differences between terms are increasing by 2. If we continue this pattern, the difference between the next term and 30 should be 12: 30 + 12 = 42.

Behavioral Insights in the Caliper Test

The Caliper Test delves into 21 of your personality traits and behavioral tendencies, testing factors like extraversion, openness, conscientiousness, and emotional stability. It also looks at your motivations, values, and interpersonal skills, including communication and teamwork. This holistic approach provides employers with a deep understanding of your potential fit within their organization. Let’s take a closer look at the question types to understand better:

Most to Least

Most to least questions assess your ability to prioritize items or actions based on specific criteria. You’ll be presented with a list of items, and your task is to rank them in order, from most to least relevant or important according to the given context.

Caliper Most to Least Sample Question
Which of these statements aligns with your true self and which one makes you want to run for the hills?
I believe expressing one's stance is important.

I'm not afraid to challenge the status quo.

Recognition for my work is crucial for my motivation.

It's hard for me to let go of past mistakes.


Agree/disagree questions gauge your alignment with statements or concepts. You’ll encounter various statements and indicate whether you agree or disagree with each based on your personal beliefs or values.

Caliper Agree / Disagree Sample Question
I often ruminate on negative feedback.
Strongly Disagree
Mildly Disagree
Mildly Agree
Strongly Agree

Ranking Format

Ranking format questions evaluate your ability to rank items or options based on specific criteria. You’ll be presented with a set of items, and your task is to arrange them in a particular order, adhering to the criteria provided.

Caliper Ranking Format Sample Question

Rank the following statements according to your agreement/disagreement to them from 1 (Agree) to 3 (Disagree), 2 is (Neutral/Neither). Only one number may be given per statement (if you used 1 for statement one, you cannot use it for another statement).

I confidently express my opinions and ideas during group discussions.
I am attuned to the emotions and needs of others.
I take a careful and prudent approach when making decisions.
