Cubiks’ Ability tests evaluate how individuals process, interpret, and interact with different types of information. The firm’s most common ability test is known as the Logiks General.
The Logiks General evaluation is available in two formats: intermediate and advanced. Thus, depending on the position you are applying to, you may encounter one level of the difficulty or the other. Whatever the case might be, each test will consist of three main sections: numerical, verbal, and abstract reasoning.
Usually, the candidates have 12 minutes to complete the examination — giving them 4 minutes per section. Furthermore, most Logiks tests include 50 questions, including 24 verbal questions, 16 numerical questions, and 10 abstract reasoning questions.
Keep in mind that you might encounter each of these sections as a separate assessment consisting of 20-30 questions to be answered in a 15-25-minute timeframe.
The Cubiks’ Personality Assessment consists of a series of personality and preference inventory questions, hence their acronym PAPI. These, are designed to evaluate a person’s work behaviors, tendencies, and style; while also evaluating interpersonal skills and core performance qualities.
Generally, there are two sections within the evaluation:
This section is untimed and usually takes candidates between 25 to 35 minutes to complete. Here, you will encounter questions with different statements that you need to rate based on your level of agreement.
For instance, you may encounter a statement that reads: ‘I seek out constant change.‘ Based on this premise, you would need to answer if you ‘strongly disagree,’ ‘disagree,’ ‘slightly disagree,’ neither agree nor disagree,’ ‘slightly agree,’ ‘agree’ or ‘strongly agree.’
This section is also untimed and generally takes between 30 to 35 minutes to complete. Here, you will encounter three different statements and be asked to choose the answer that describes you best and the one that describes you least.
Although it may seem somewhat confusing, your answer allows future employers to determine your abilities and suitability for a specific role.
Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs)
SJTs evaluate your skills and suitability for a position based on your responses to a series of decision-making scenarios. Note that the hypothetical situations presented will correspond to work-related scenarios you may encounter in real life if chosen for the job.
As a result, the SJTs cover topics ranging from planning and organization to communication and leadership skills. Keep in mind that these are usually untimed evaluations that require candidates to rate or rank the responses presented to each scenario, based on their effectiveness.
Like we mentioned before, the company has a wide variety of evaluations to offer. Hence, there are many other less common assessments, including team role questionnaires, the E-tray Evaluation, and The Reasoning for Business (RfB) Test.
