The ACER Test of Abstract Reasoning (TAR) is a test of abstract (or non-verbal) reasoning. It is a relatively language-free assessment, used as a measure of general ability for selection into occupations with a moderate to high demand on reasoning and where the ability to think clearly to solve problems is important.
The ACER TAR can be administered as a Short Form (45 items - easier of the two assessments) or a Long Form (60 items - more challenging assessment).
The ACER TAR OMR Answer Sheet is used by the candidate to mark their responses.
The ACER TAR can be administered by hand, but may only be scored by ACER Test Scoring Services (completed OMR Answer Sheets are sent in for scoring and report generation). Alternatively, the ACER TAR can be full administered and scored online via the ACER Psychological Testing Platform (APT).
