10 tests for cognitive, perceptual, psychomotor, mental ability, flexibility, etc.


• Consists of 10 tests that measure cognitive, perceptual, and psychomotor abilities required for successful job performance in a wide variety of occupations.

• Designed for flexibility–you can select from the series of 10 separate tests to assemble batteries customized to meet your needs.

• A General Mental Ability (GMA) battery and other suggested test batteries developed for major occupational groups have been identified to maximize validity and utility.

• Individual or group administration is fast and simple–most of the tests take only 5 minutes; each test is confined to a single sheet with clear instructions printed on the face of the test sheet.

• Easy to score by hand–stencils are provided for both right and wrong responses.

• Extensive normative data available-the Examiner’s Manual provides the most commonly used norms for individual EAS tests and test batteries; the Supplemental Norms Report provides percentile norms for over 85 occupational and educational classifications based on over 210,000 test scores.

• A wealth of research supports the validity of the EAS Test Series for predicting job performance and training success (160 criterion-related validity studies, including 725 validity coefficients).
