For whom and when

The jobs market is becoming increasingly diverse and flexible. This makes it more difficult to attract the most talented people. After all, how can you compare employees who were educated differently, and who have different experiences and backgrounds?  
The Connector Ability helps you make an honest, independent selection. Using this culture and language-fair test, you can reliably compare candidates. Organizations often use the Connector Ability at the beginning of selection processes.  
Using the results, it can be quickly determined whether a candidate should be invited for a (follow-up) interview or not. The Connector Ability also tests people's learning ability. 

Working method

The Connector Ability is a modern adaptive ability test. Employees can fill in the Connector Ability online at any time or in any location they choose. They can even complete the test at home. During the test, its difficulty level adapts itself to the ability of the participant. This way, every participant is asked a unique series of questions.  

Previous test experience offers no advantages. If desired, you can have participants do a short retest at your own, monitored location.

For certain professions, verbal ability is important. Examples include legal or communicative roles. In addition to Connector Ability, PiCompany offers its verbal ability test—Connector Verbal Analogies.
