Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT: Research shows that cognitive aptitude is one of the most accurate predictors of job success: twice as predictive as job interviews, three times as predictive as experience, and four times as predictive as education level. Criteria’s employment aptitude tests provide you with a rapid and precise way of measuring the abilities required to succeed in nearly every occupation. The CCATSM is a pre-employment aptitude test that measures an individual's aptitude, or ability to solve problems, digest and apply information, learn new skills, and think critically. Individuals with high aptitude are more likely to be quick learners and high performers than are individuals with low aptitude.

Criteria Mechanical Reasoning Assessment (CMRA): It measures a candidate’s mechanical aptitude and reasoning ability. The CMRA is a short, mobile-friendly test that can predict performance for occupations involving the operation, maintenance, and servicing of tools, equipment, and machinery. Reading level for the CMRA is estimated to be at the sixth-grade level, and the content is designed to minimize gender and racial/ethnic bias that can occur in other traditional mechanical aptitude tests. The CMRA has been extensively validated, demonstrating that the test is highly predictive of job performance for a wide variety of jobs that require the operation, maintenance, and repair of equipment and machinery.
