Everything You Need to Know

The Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test (CCAT) measures your critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and the ability to learn and apply new information to given situations. The test is an accurate predictor of overall job performance. With a set of 50 questions and a 15-minute time limit, you will be evaluated on logic, math, and verbal and spatial reasoning. The cognitive assessment provided by the CCAT Test is proven to be accurate and scientifically valid.

Don’t spend too much time on any particular question. Remember that you have only 15 minutes to complete the test.

The test is taken online, and it reports your performance with respect to other candidates who took this test. The CCAT Test delivers insightful reports to employers, enabling them to make the best possible decisions. The scores achieved on this test consist of raw scores, percentile ranking, and sub-scores – all of which determine the test taker’s individual as well as relative cognitive abilities.

Test Features

The CCAT is a cognitive ability assessment test that measures your ability to think critically and solve problems. Successful test takers demonstrate their ability to digest and apply new information, as well as learn new skills. 

The test is used to predict the performance of middle and upper-level positions, including management roles, sales executives, executive assistants, software developers and analysts. 

There are 3 categories of CCAT questions:

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Logic & Math
  • Spatial Reasoning

CCAT verbal reasoning questions test you on letter sequences, antonyms, and syllogisms. A syllogism is a question where the question makes two statements, and asks the test taker if there are any conclusions they can make based on the given statements. 

The CCAT logic and math questions challenge you with number sequences and word problems. These questions test your ability in fractions, decimals, basic algebra, multiplication and division. Calculators are not allowed, but you can use a pencil and paper when working out the answers.

The CCAT spatial reasoning questions focus on your ability to recognize patterns. The questions challenge you to identify the odd-one-out, look at matrices, and inductive reasoning, with the goal of assessing your ability to solve problems using visual information. 

CCAT scores are instantly tabulated, and you’ll receive a detailed report within moments of completing the test.

Technical Facts

  • There are 50 multiple choice questions. Test takers have 15 minutes to answer the questions. Only 1% of test takers complete all 50 questions.
  • The average CCAT test taker gets 24 answers correct.
  • Calculators are not permitted during the test. However, our course provides you with the tips and tricks you’ll need to correctly answer the math questions.
  • Top employers from around the world administer the CCAT to potential employees. The test has been given over 500,000 times, as a method for screening workers before they are hired.

Results Scale and Interpretations

The results of the CCAT Practice Test are comprehensive and give powerful and detailed insight into your cognitive abilities in relation to a job’s specifications. You get your report immediately after you complete the test. The results and interpretations of the test can be explained using four categories:

1. Raw Score

Once you take the CCAT Test, you will be provided with a raw score. A raw score indicates the number of questions answered correctly. For instance, if your raw score is 30, it means that you have correctly answered 30 out of 50 questions.

The average raw score is 24.

2. Percentile Ranking

The raw score is converted into a relative performance metric called ‘percentile ranking.’ This indicates your score in comparison to others who have taken the test. For instance, if your percentile ranking is 44, it means that you scored better than 44% of test takers.

3. Sub-Scores

You also receive separate scores for each of the three sections: (1) logic and math, (2) verbal ability, and (3) spatial reasoning. The scores you receive in these categories are percentiles, meaning that if you scored a 25 in logic and math, 50 in verbal ability, and 75 in spatial reasoning:

  • 25 = you scored better than 25% of other test takers in logic and math
  • 50 = you scored better than 50% of other test takers in verbal ability
  • 75 = you scored better than 75% of other test takers in spatial reasoning

4. Score Range

While every company has their own internal way of interpreting scores and assessing their candidates’ ability to perform in different roles, Criteria Corp. has suggested score ranges for positions, based on national norms that they have compiled. 

For example, someone looking for an accounting/finance position should score between 24-39, while store managers should score between 20-37. Successful customer service representatives score between 18-32, while lawyers and company vice presidents score between 29-42.

5. Score Range

Your score report is two pages. As shown in the results summary figure, the first page shows your raw score and the percentile that you finished. 

Your score will be further broken down by category, as shown in the Results Details section. This allows you to see what percentile you placed in for spatial reasoning, verbal ability, and math & logic. 

The final section on the first page shows your raw score, and how you rank compared to other people who have worked in a similar position.

The second page lists different positions, and the recommended score you would need to achieve success in those jobs, as shown in the Suggested CCAT Score Ranges by Position figure.

Companies Using CCAT

The CCAT is administered in all 50 states and in 18 countries internationally. It is used in over a dozen industries, including government positions, health care, financial services and retail. The test is used to evaluate candidates at all levels of the organization, from entry level roles to senior management positions, including individuals with advanced degrees such as attorneys, engineers and programmers. 

Two such companies that use CCAT are Vista Equity Partners and CrossOver.

  • Vista Equity Partners – CEO Robert Smith believes that testing helps his company find talented people who have been overlooked by other companies due to a weak resume. At Vista, the test is used to recruit talent as well as to help company employees rise to senior management employees in the company.
    The company has a number of subsidiaries (including Tibco, Marketo, Solera, Infoblox, Cvent, Mindbody, and Apptio) and considers the test to be a crucial piece in the hiring process. Candidates who want to work for the company or one of their subsidiaries have the opportunity to display their potential through the tests, making it vitally important that one be prepared for the timed test before going in for an interview. 
  • CrossOver – The company connects individuals from low-income companies with high-paying jobs in the United States. It requires its candidates to take the CCAT as part of their application process. Test takers need to be prepared, as they may only take the test once within a 6-month time period.

CCAT FAQs

What is a CCAT test?

The CCAT, which stands for Criteria Cognitive Aptitude Test, measures a potential employees verbal, math, and spatial skills. It is a pre-employment aptitude test that lets potential employers know how well you solve problems, learn new skills, and think critically. 
The test has been administered over 500,000 times and is used by hundreds of companies around the world in their hiring process.

For which types of positions does the CCAT predict success?

The CCAT is used to predict the performance of middle and upper-level positions, including management roles, sales executives, executive assistants, software developers and analysts.
The required enhanced cognitive abilities of these types of roles are measured by the CCAT.

How hard is CCAT?

The test is very difficult, especially for a candidate who has never seen it. There are 50 questions covering three very different types of information and needs to be completed within 15 minutes. Less than 1% of all candidates answer all 50 questions during the test.
The difficulty does not stem from the difficulty level of each specific question but from other factors such as the severe time constraints (18 seconds per question), the exposure to unfamiliar question formats, and the need to continuously switch from solving one type of question to another.
However, candidates who take practice tests and understand the types of questions they will be working on have a significant advantage. Practices allow you to pace yourself, find your areas of strength, and perform well on the test.

How can I practice for a CCAT test?

Taking timed tests in a true test environment is the most effective way to practice for the CCAT. In addition, you’ll want to find a practice test provider that explains the reasoning behind correct and incorrect answers and offers techniques for moving through the test quickly.
Candidates can achieve significant test result improvements by investing a few hours a day for 2-3 days before the test.

What is cognitive testing for employment?

Cognitive tests like the CCAT are a way for companies to assess candidates in a variety of skills during the hiring process.

Is CCAT an IQ test?

The CCAT is not an IQ test. IQ tests measure intelligence, while the CCAT measures the skills that employees will need to perform on the job.

What does the CCAT measure?

The CCAT is a cognitive ability assessment test that measures your ability to think critically and solve problems. Successful test takers demonstrate their ability to digest and apply new information, as well as learn new skills. These attributes all demonstrate your ability to succeed in a new job.

Does the CCAT actually provide valuable information to potential employers?

CCAT reports are highly accurate in predicting success on the job. According to Criteria, the tests developer, the test is twice as powerful a predictor of success as your interview, three times as powerful as your resume, and four times as powerful as your educational background.

What is a good score on CCAT?

The average CCAT score is 24, which would be in range for over 80% of the positions Criteria Corp. tracks.
Individuals who are looking for jobs like customer service representative, receptionist, or production manager can qualify for those positions with a score of 18, while attorneys and senior managers need to score a 29 or higher to be considered a viable candidate.

How long does it take to receive CCAT results?

CCAT scores are instantly tabulated, and you’ll receive a detailed report within moments of completing the test.

Administration

The CCAT is an online test that is taken in front of a computer. It is an unproctored exam as individuals can take it at home. Test takers should be advised, however, that employers do have the right to require individuals to take the test in the office. This is to ensure the candidate has taken the test and not someone else in their place.

    Highly recommended if you are going to CCAT test for a job. The trick is to use all the material they provide – simulation, practice mode, analyze each question and answer and also the statistics. The stats will help which type of questions you are spending the most time on and adjust your speed. I wish there are more simulation tests.

    I am giving this program one star because you can only get the “Ace Your Test” booklet by “Raving” about your experience. This means they are creating an incentive or a good review instead of an honest review and means you really can’t trust any of the reviews. Also I found this to be kind of ‘Meh” as a course. They didn’t really teach you now to be more successful at each type of question other than generalities.

    I would love a strategy for approaching spacial questions, like a 5 step process for approaching each question, i.e. first look at a, then b, then c, then… or eliminate based on this and this, then guess from the remaining if you believe you have spent more than 20 seconds on the question. For vocabulary, a quick mental check list as in ask your self if the word has more than one definition.

    Once they teach you the strategy for each type of question it would be great to have some practice questions just for that question type.

Taking the practice tests really helped me gauge how much time I was spending on each question and knew when to take an educated guess rather than waste time. Also, in the first practice test, I did not do well on the spatial reasoning questions. After reading the tips and the explanation of answers, I improved my understanding and overall score specifically in my weak area of spatial reasoning. Definitely worth the price!

    Overall, I would say great content, real time test experience.

    I highly recommend this course to anyone who needs to take the CCAT. The CCAT is all about managing one’s time, and there is no better way to prepare than by doing timed practices. In addition to providing timed practice tests, this course also includes detailed solutions with explanations of problem-solving approaches that will significantly improve one’s test-taking speed. I found the practice tests to be more difficult than the actual test, so I felt very prepared for the actual test and was able to get through most of the questions.

I am generally very thorough when I take a test and this course helped me with my time management. I studied the material for four hours and moved my average from 67% to 95% accurate responses. I highly recommend!

    I had 48 hours to prepare for the CCAT. I completed the prep course (and brushed up on math on my own) and boosted my raw score from 24 to 36 – putting me in the 87th percentile. The alternating timed tests with practiced non-timed tests with explanations were extremely helpful. The only change I would only recommend are additional practice tests for those needing longer prep periods. The course was enough for a two day prep.

Cobwebs on the material resulted in 20% test scores. iPrep cleared the cobwebs and helped me pass the first CCAT. I’ve been asked back for my 3rd interview and to take another CCAT while they observe to ‘make sure its me’ taking the test. Its all good as I’ve gone back over the iPrep tests to warm up. Would love to see a 5th practice test!!!

    This prep course is well worth the money. I had no idea what a CCAT was. Practice and repetition definitely helps as the “20 seconds per question” can be stressful. After taking the 5 tests and doing the review of each, I was well prepared. My scored increased 25 or points from first practice to last. The actual CCAT I took for the company had simpler questions in general and I think I answered 42ish questions of the 50 which is the most out of all the review tests. I think I did well. I have progressed to the final stages of the interview process so mission accomplished there. Bottom line, the practice here will give you confidence for the real test which is key to being able to speed through the questions and not have to read directions for each question (you will know what type of question after you practice which saves a lot of time).

    This course is worth my time and money because I tend to take tests very slowly to insure I get the correct answer. This course did two things for me: 1) it gave me strategies to approach the problems logically, and 2) it provided lots of practice so that I could speed up my mind and recognize when to move on as opposed to wasting too much time on a problem. I’m sure it will increase my score on the real thing.

    I just took the CCAT test for a job I am applying to. I’m so happy I found this course and the price was so reasonable. First of all, the questions presented in the course are 100% representative of the questions asked in the actual test. There were no surprises. I would even say that the practice tests in the course were a little more difficult than the actual test, which is what you want. You want to be practicing at a higher level than what you are tested at. I went through the course in sequence. When I got to the tests, I took each one timed then reviewed the answers. Once I got to the point where I stopped answering the questions because time ran out, I repeated the entire test in practice mode. I started out at 48% and when I finished the practice tests, I was at 52%. On the practice tests, I consistently ran out of time in the low 30 questions. In the actual test, I was able to answer more than 40 questions. I don’t know what score I got on the actual test, but it was enough to advance to the next stage of the interview process, so SUCCESS!!! I highly recommend this course if you are faced with taking the CCAT. Unless you are a genius or do brain teasers for fun, do not go in cold! You need to practice and this course is an inexpensive means to that end! Bravo!
