The Global Cognitive Index (GCI) is a computer adaptive cognitive ability test that measures three separate components of cognitive ability. Multiple-choice items are drawn from a bank of content with a broad range of difficulty such that a candidate can be accurately assessed at any level of normal cognitive ability. It includes three separate tests, each sold separately.

Key features of the GCI are:

Dynamic presentation of items: The GCI can be administered without a proctor to save on administrative costs without threatening test security. Also, because the test is adaptive, an accurate assessment of the candidate’s ability will be reached much faster.

Customizability: Four subtests of the GCI are available. Each test can be administered as a standalone test or in any combination with the other three. This offers a great deal of flexibility.

ConVerge: The GCI can be administered in an unproctored setting. Organizations using the GCI in an unproctored setting may want to confirm that candidates did not seek outside assistance when taking the GCI. The GCI has functionality that can confirm a candidate’s score with a fast, short, single proctored assessment.
