Matrigma Test

The Matrigma Test was published in 2010 by the Swedish company Assessio, and today it is part of various multinational companies’ recruitment processes. This evaluation, also known as the Hogan Matrigma, measures a candidate’s general mental ability. Although it is not as standard as other cognitive ability assessments, this test is a useful predictor of job performance.

Unlike many other evaluations you may encounter throughout selection processes, the Matrigma Test has an unusual non-verbal format. Hence, it is imperative that you practice before taking the actual evaluation to familiarize yourself with its format. By doing so, you will have an advantage over other candidates.

As mentioned before, Matrigma evaluates a person’s cognitive abilities and is used to predict career success. Thus, expect questions that will test your aptitudes for accurate problem solving, logical reasoning, and the ability to grasp new information – critical skills in any job position.

Overall, the Matrigma Test consists of a single-question format known as abstract reasoning matrices. These questions, are usually 3×3 grids that contain a series of objects/graphics that adhere to specific logical rules. There are six available options for you to choose from ⁠— to do so, you will need to interpret the logic behind the cells in the matrix.

Three Full-Length Simulation Matrigma-Style

Timed Tests of 35 Questions Each

The assessment is available in 20 different languages, including English, Spanish, Swedish, Italian, Portuguese, and German. It is a computer-based evaluation, and like many other cognitive skills evaluations, there is no penalty for wrong answers.

Usually, you will encounter one of two different versions of the assessment:

Classic Matrigma

This format is the most popular version of the test. It is also the longest, with a 40-minute time limit to answer 35 questions. As a result, you will have approximately 1:15 minutes to answer each question.

Keep in mind that questions increase in difficulty as you progress throughout the test. However, note that they might be random easier (or harder) questions mixed in.

Adaptive Matrigma

Also known as Matrigma 2, this version includes a newer format of the traditional evaluation. As a result, it is less common. It consists of 40 questions to be answered in 12 minutes — leaving candidates with exactly one minute per item.

Given that this version is adaptive, the level of difficulty of the questions depends on the answer of the previous question. Hence, for every question you answer correctly, the following item will be harder. Thus, if you answer incorrectly, the next question will decrease in difficulty.

Lastly, you must know that the way the Matrigma Test scores is strictly confidential. Meaning you will only know if your punctuation was ‘average,’ ‘below average,’ or ‘above average.’ Based on previous experiences, answering at least half of the questions correctly (18 to 20 over 40) will result in an ‘average’ score.

However, to successfully pass the assessment, you will need to be within the top 20%. So, be prepared as the Matrigma Test result is all about how many problems you were able to solve effectively within the given time constraint.
