The ACER Test of Abstract Reasoning (ACER TAR) is a relatively language-free, Australian test of abstract reasoning. It is 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.
- Current adult data
- Suitable for candidates with language difficulties or from non-English speaking backgrounds
- Can be used in combination with other ACER verbal and numerical reasoning tests to create a complete picture of a candidate's general ability
- Suitable for individual or group testing
The ACER TAR can be administered by hand, using pen-and-paper materials, but may only be scored via ACER Test Scoring Services (completed OMR Answer Sheets are sent to ACER, who score and provide reports to the client’s specifications).
Alternatively, the assessment can be administered and scored online via the ACER Psychological Testing Platform (APT).
The new APT platform enables clients to easily manage their candidates, assign assessments and purchase credits. Clients can search, order and prioritise candidates and results based on the chosen criteria – and generate reports when it suits.There’s an informative Help section with useful information and some short webinars.
Candidates will benefit from the consistent and intuitive interface and easy-to-use navigation.
