The Wonderlic Personnel Test is now known as the Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test. This group intelligence test gauges how good a prospective employee is in solving problems and learning while on the job. Exam takers have 12 minutes to answer 50 multiple choice items. A score of 20 would indicate average intelligence, while a score of 10 suggests literacy.

In short, how successful will he or she be in carrying out certain tasks. It also helps companies choose people who have the appropriate level of cognitive abilities so that they could decrease the amount of time needed to train new employees, as well as reduce turnover rates. Other than employer recruitment, the Wonderlic Personnel Test is also used in student placements and admissions.
