What it measures:

The General Reasoning Test Battery assesses three domains of ability that are relevant to work and study: Verbal Reasoning, Numerical Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning. Of these, Abstract reasoning is the least affected by education and cultural background.

Target population:

This battery is recommended for persons with an educational level of grade 9 and upwards. It can be used for selection, guidance or development.

Logistics considerations:

The tests are brief, and the time taken for administration (not counting instructions) is less than half an hour for the whole battery. Instructions need to be given with care though, and if the test is properly administered with due attention to examples and instructions, it should take between 45 minutes and an hour to administer the whole battery with all three subtests. The tests can be administered using pencil and paper, online or on-screen using an off-line computer via the GeneSys integrated assessment software.

When administering the GRT2 as well as the OIP, the option of generating a career report becomes available. This costs 4 credits.

Career Report (GeneSys online ONLY) 

 

This report provides career-relevant information and is intended as a guide for the professional to utilise in writing their own integrated report. Additionally, it has summarised the information contained in the standard report of the GRT2 and the extended report of the OIP. The General Mental Ability Profile of the GRT2 is not included in the career report, however the career report does provide a career exploration guide.
