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.
This battery is recommended for persons with an educational level of grade 9 and upwards. It can be used for selection, guidance or development.
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.
Reference documents for the GRT2
GRT2 Example Reports
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.

GRT2 SA Norm tables
This selection of norms documents reflects our two most recent updates of the norms for the GRT2. It is recommended that users should use the most recent norms unless there is a compelling reason to continue using older norms.
Norms update file for GeneSys (Windows)
Please note that official support for GeneSys for Windows has been discontinued and therefore the latest norms updates are not available for this platform. To take advantage of the updated norms, improved reports, and updated research, please convert to GeneSysonline.
Unzip this file to a file with a gsn extension which can be imported into GeneSys for Windows to make these norms available to your reporting system.
