Non Verbal Reasoning

Non-Verbal Reasoning

Understand and assess the abilities of pupils who think more easily in images than words.

This assessment does not involve reading or aural comprehension, and can therefore be used to measure the potential of pupils who have limited literacy skills or children with English as an Additional Language (EAL).

By concentrating on basic learning processes and on reasoning skills rather than reading or mathematical knowledge, these non-verbal assessments provide effective indicators of future academic performance in certain subjects such as maths, science, and design and technology.

Your results, which are age standardised, give a clear indication of a pupil’s abilities, and help inform teaching strategies and individual target-setting.
