What does Spatial Reasoning assess?

Ability tests are a typical part of the selection process, or for development within the workplace. Spatial reasoning tests are one of the most commonly used aptitude tests that come up during a job application. Spatial reasoning tests are non-verbal, standardized psychometric assessment tests that provide the employing organization with information about a candidate’s ability to mentally re-arrange, rotate and manipulate shapes or objects without physically touching them. These tests are often used in technical sectors (such as engineering) but also in the military.

Spatial reasoning is essential for solving everyday problems, such as using a map and compass, merging into high-speed traffic, and orienting yourself in your environment. Other examples of tasks that require visual-spatial ability are determining the size of a box and how many objects fit in it, and using mirror images.

Spatial ability is also essential in many fields of study, such as mathematics, natural sciences, architecture, astronomy, engineering and economic forecasting.

What you should know about Spatial Reasoning Tests

Employers choose to use psychometric testing during their recruitment process to help give a better overall evaluation of candidates and their suitability for the job that they’re applying for. Psychometric testing could help to gauge the future performance of candidate's and also improve employee retention by making successful hiring decisions.

The most common way for employers to use aptitude tests such as spatial reasoning, is online. Traditionally, aptitude tests have taken the form of pen and paper but due to benefits such as saving valuable time and money, online testing is used more and more frequently. Undertaking aptitude tests is usually the follow-up action after an employer has accepted your CV or initial job application form. 

If you pass the online test in some cases you are invited to an assessment centre, which is usually done by larger employers. The term assessment centre is used due to the fact that employers conduct these extended assessment in a single centre, either an office of the employers themselves or at a third party venue. The assessment centre is often (but not always) a day that constitutes the final stage of the application process. At the assessment centre they will ask you to sit a repeat test at the assessment centre to verify your earlier test scores, therefore don’t get your friends or family to help you out during the online test! 

Preparing for an assessment centre or online aptitude test can be stressful due to the fact that you don’t know what to expect. The best way to familiarize yourself is with practice aptitude tests that mimic the tests used by employers and recruiters. has prepared thousands of candidates for their assessments and aptitude tests by offering realistic test simulations with fully worked solutions. 

By practicing spatial reasoning tests you can improve your performance during the real test by familiarizing yourself with the format and time-pressure.
