Predictive Index offers some of the most widely-used pre-employment assessments in the world, testing the cognitive and behavioral fit of candidates for a given job position. There are two main tests used in Predictive Index testing:

  • Professional Learning Indicator (PLI): Abstract, numerical & verbal reasoning. 50 questions in 12 minutes.
  • Behavioral Assessment: Measures behavioral workplace fit. Untimed, free-choice.

Both of these assessments frequently prove to be major roadblocks for job applicants. On the Professional Learning Indicator, you’ll have under 15 seconds per question, which is an incredibly short amount of time to process new information and give an accurate answer. On the Behavioral Assessment, candidates often don’t understand how to properly present their qualities for the exact job position they’re applying to – after all, different roles in different industries come with different character requirements.

For the smoothest prep experience possible, Prepterminal’s Predictive Index Mastery Course covers every single section of the cognitive & behavioral assessment in a modular curriculum packed with practice tests and study guides to build your knowledge of every question type on the test block by block. Within just 4 hours of study, you’ll go from being completely unfamiliar with the test to knowing exactly what is on it and how to beat it.

The PI Cognitive Assessment Test is More Challenging Than it Seems!

Far too often hard-working and qualified individuals are being turned away from jobs they were otherwise suitable for simply because their test scores were too low. While the PI Cognitive Assessment test can be useful as a metric of ability many highly competent individuals fail the test for no reason other than their unfamiliarity with the types of questions and time traps.

We at PrepTerminal believe that nobody should be turned away from their dream job! That’s why we have developed a PI Cognitive Assessment preparation course that also comes with a bonus prep module for the PI Behavioral Assessment course.

An Overview Of The PI Cognitive Assessment Test Structure

The questions on the PI Cognitive Assessment Test can vary in difficulty. However, none of them are exceptionally difficult to the point that they require prior education in any particular field.

This test is a metric of general intelligence and competence under pressure rather than a test of learned knowledge.

That’s not to say this test is easy. If you have taken a sample test, you may be led to assume that this test will be a walk in the park. This could not be further from the truth! If time were no object, then everyone would probably perform well. However, time is very much an object.

The test comes with a 12-minute time limit. When faced with 50 questions, this means that you are expected to answer 4-5 questions in a minute if you are to fully complete the test.

This is why the average score on the PI Cognitive Assessment test is around 20 out of 50, meaning that the majority of test-takers fail to correctly answer more than 40% of the test!

The Recommended Target Test Scores On The PICA

The recommended target score on the PI Cognitive Assessment varies by job function. For example, jobs in areas such as operations recommend a target score of only 18, while other fields such as health and human social services require a score of 25. Additionally, to be considered a 100% cognitive fit for any given job role, a candidate should score 2 points above their target score.

When It Comes To The PI test, You’ve Only Got One Shot

Many companies administer the PICA and PIBA test to ensure that the candidate they hire is the right fit for the job.

In the PICA, tight time limits and a large number of question types make what might first appear to be a simple intelligence test a challenging undertaking.

If you have applied for a job position and have been asked to take the PI Cognitive Ability test or the PI Behavioral Assessment, there won’t be any second chances. You need a hole-in-one! PrepTerminal’s preparatory PI Cognitive Ability course with a bonus prep module for the PIBA course is the essential resource for maximizing your chance at test success and landing your ideal job.
