The ACER Test of Abstract Reasoning (TAR) is typically used as a measure of general ability for selection into occupations which involve a moderate to high level of demand on reasoning ability and for other purposes where the ability to think clearly, analyze information, solve problems and make rational decisions are important.
The TAR measures the extent to which a person can discover principles and rules, and apply them to solve problems using abstract visual patterns rather than numbers and words. The TAR is nearly language free and so may avoid problems associated with the use of verbal reasoning tests in some contexts where candidates’ written English skills are not well developed.
Examples of selection criteria linked to measures of abstract reasoning are:
• Planning and coordinating
• Creating innovative solutions to problems
• Making decisions in a rational manner
• Learning new material quickly
• Collecting and analyzing information
