By applying the principles outlined in the examples to other abstract problems the candidate should more readily identify rules and relationships.
Our aim is to facilitate the following learning outcomes:
- Identify individual elements within a group of elements;
- Identify a rule connecting a conclusion from deductive reasoning that is 100% correct, drawing logical conclusions from given information
- Identify relationships between words or phrases that share a common (homogenous) characteristic; (verbal reasoning)
- Apply techniques aimed at increasing the speed at which logical rules are generated (the faster a person generates solutions, the higher the probability of a higher score in a ‘norms’ test. That is, identifying the optimum performers from the lowest performers in the test.—in a given period of time);
- Increase the number of elements a person can keep track of in responding to an item (span capacity). Someone with a larger span capacity than someone
else can take into account more elements, without making errors and hence has a larger probability of a correct answer.
- Identify your vocabulary strength in determining meanings of words and synonyms and antonyms. (A common focus in psychometric testing)
