ebilities Mental Agility Series. Simply Better

Focus on mental agility

Mental agility is the new #1 in employment testing. That’s because people who think quickly, clearly and flexibly are best equipped to deal with the deluge of information and ever-changing demands of work in the technology age.

Mentally agile people are the quick learners and rapid problem solvers who can easily be upskilled and reskilled to reach high levels of productivity in new jobs.

We have developed a range of short, sharp tests that involve the attention, concentration and power of working memory to help you quickly assess the mental agility of your job applicants. Each question is completed under time pressure – an answer must be given within a “cut-off” time. And because speed is a key part of mental agility, a test taker’s response time is factored into the results.


New insights into Cognitive Confidence

To be successful in the changing world of work, employees must also have confidence in their abilities. People who lack confidence in their abilities tend toward caution and self doubt – they may hesitate to take on new jobs or shy away from learning how to use new technologies.

What’s important in identifying truly agile people, is a person’s cognitive confidence. That’s because cognitive confidence turns ability into action. It’s people with high ability plus high cognitive confidence that are most likely to be your top performers.

We have pioneered the measurement of cognitive confidence as an integral part of the Mental Agility Series to help you identify the agile talent you need, wherever in the world you do business.

Designed for use in any market

Organizations increasingly need to test across borders to find the right talent. They need to know that the tests they use are designed for fair and valid comparisons of test takers from any cultural and language background.

From the ground up, ebilities MAS tests were designed and developed to meet the requirement for culture fair global delivery, so organizations can use a standard set of tests worldwide to identify and select their agile workforce.


Leading the field in smartphone delivery of timed ability tests

21st century assessment is all about having valid, short, sharp tests that can be taken on any type of internet connected device. It’s a fact that in many countries smartphone ownership outstrips computer ownership by a wide margin. So assessing test takers on their own phone is a necessity – not a luxury!

ebilities leads the field in the design of ability tests for smartphones and mobile devices, so that you can reach test takers no matter where they are located and what device they are using.

Breakthrough ‘real time’ analysis of unsupervised test sessions

Test takers have an expectation that their assessments will be accessible when they want, where they want. This creates a requirement for easy access, but also for close scrutiny of their unsupervised test activity, as a strategy to deter and detect cheating.

ebilities is a world leader in the sophisticated ‘real time’ analysis of test taker behavior to identify non-compliant test taker actions that may invalidate test results.
