What Is A Cappfinity Assessment?

Cappfinity (previously known as Capp in the UK but recently rebranded to align with the US and Australian markets) is a leading provider of graduate psychometric testing, commonly used by recruiters and large organisations to help make hiring decisions.

Cappfinity assessments test the abilities and strengths of candidates using a series of assessments, which recruiters and hiring managers then use to compare candidates. The results of the Cappfinity assessment allow employers to consider the likelihood of the candidate enjoying and being successful at a particular role. In theory, Cappfinity assessments level the playing field and look at potential as well as current aptitude.

The Structure Of Cappfinity Assessments

Cappfinity assessments are aptitude tests which assess the innate strengths of the candidate. Cappfinity offer a wide variety of tests but the most common Cappfinity assessments are the numerical reasoning, verbal reasoning, critical thinking and situational judgement tests. Each follows a similar structure, in which candidates are presented with scenarios, diagrams or written passages following which the candidate selects an option from a multiple choice list.

Key to success when faced with a Cappfinity assessment is to practice and familiarise yourself with the kind of questions that make up the tests and have experienced how much time you will need to allocate to each question.

Cappfinity Numerical Reasoning Test

A typical Cappfinity numerical reasoning test invites the candidate to answer around 20 questions. In theory there is no time limit but in reality the algorithm takes into account how long it takes for a candidate to achieve correct answers for all questions, so it is a balance of speed and accuracy.

Numerical reasoning tests assess a candidate's ability to understand numerical information, select relevant data, decipher problems and also interpret data including when presented visually. To select the best answer candidates should also expect to have to utilise basic arithmetic and mathematical skills, for example, to calculate percentages and ratios.

Cappfinity Verbal Reasoning Test

The Cappfinity verbal reasoning test assesses a candidate's verbal comprehension by assessing their ability to read and understand the written word. Candidates will be presented with a series of written paragraphs followed by a number of questions. For each, they will be invited to select the best or most (or least) appropriate answer - testing their ability to draw conclusions and differentiate between fact and opinion, or whether a statement is true or false based on the information contained with the passage.

As with the numerical reasoning tests candidates have ample time to complete the assessment yet how long it takes will also be taken into account.

Cappfinity Critical Thinking Test

The Cappfinity critical thinking test is similar to the verbal reasoning test in that the candidate is presented with a passage to read followed by a series of statements or questions. The tests are setting out to ascertain a candidates ability to:

  • Make or be alert to inferences
  • Recognise assumptions
  • Make deductions
  • Interpret information
  • Evaluate arguments

Candidates will have to consider whether a statement is true, false, or more likely to be one or the other, or suggest which is the best or worst fit, or most or least likely to be the conclusion.

Cappfinity Situational Judgement Test

Cappfinity situational judgement tests are intended to give insight into how a candidate might make decisions or behave in a work context, tailored to the particular role for which the candidate has applied.

After being presented with a scenario, which might be written, or might take the form of a visual scenario, the candidate must select their responses to a series of questions. This might take the form of most/least likely, ranking responses, selecting the outcome perceived most or least likely, or rating a suggested outcome.

Depending on the organisation offering the tests, the scenarios might deal with corruption, bribery, management style, customer service and so on.

Tips To Pass Cappfinity Tests

1. Don't Watch The Clock

With no official time limits, the best strategy is to practice so that you are confident taking the tests and then work quickly and efficiently without feeling under pressure to answer within a certain amount of time.

2. Pay Attention To The Instructions

Make sure that you are answering what you have actually been asked - pay attention to things like most or least, or which way you have been asked to rank things. Don't get the answer wrong by simply not paying attention.

3. Make Notes

Note down the relevant words so that when you come to selecting the correct answer you can be confident you have made the right choices.

4. Avoid Distractions

Make sure that you find somewhere quiet to take the test where you will not be interrupted. Turn off notifications on your computer and phone and remind others that you are taking a test so that they will not distract you.

5. Be Aware They Are Adaptive

Cappfinity tests can be adaptive, so some questions are harder than others. If you are answering correctly you will be served up harder questions and if you get one wrong, the questions will get easier. This allows an algorithm to make more accurate assessments of your innate ability.

    Good test - difficult questions.

    Not sure if this test is representative for the difficulty of the Cappfinity tests as the company's own test questions seem far more easy.
