The test uses geometric shapes to assess the candidate's mechanical-spatial abilities. Individuals with high scores in spatial ability tend to perform well on tasks requiring the mental transformation, manipulation, and analysis of dimensional objects.

The 64 two-dimensional shapes are drawn in separate pieces, requiring the examinee to visualize the pieces as a complete geometric shape to choose the correct answers.

Four forms are available. Forms AA and BB are alternate and equivalent forms scored by hand; Forms MA and MB are alternate and equivalent forms scored by machine or hand.
