The PlaceMe Cognitive Ability Assessment (CAA) is designed to measure the overall reasoning ability of employees and job applicants, with a specific emphasis on the legal profession within the South African context. It has been found that cognitive ability, also known as general mental ability (GMA), is essential for effective onboarding and learning in the workplace. This timed assessment consists of 55 items and should take about 50 minutes to complete. This assessment was developed by Clearlaw working with a Research psychologist and an Industrial and Organisational Psychologist, according to psychometric best practice.

This bespoke assessment is not only for law students, graduates and admitted attorneys, but it is also one way to determine if you are suited for the legal profession. 

The CAA measures the following constructs:

  • Comprehension: the ability to read and understand business-level English
  • Verbal Reasoning: the ability to use written/verbal information to make inferences and decisions
  • Numerical Reasoning: the ability to manipulate numerical information in a practical context
  • Learning Potential: the ability to detect patterns and relationships in figures and shapes

A final report is generated for each candidate on completion of the assessment which outlines the candidate’s results in a narrative format.

Assessment process overview:

Once payment has been received, an email with instructions and log-in details to the CAA will be generated. Once the assessment has been completed, our system will compile a report. The report will be sent to the candidate by email. A turnaround time of one business day is required for the final report to be generated and sent. More detailed insights and feedback from an Industrial and Organisational Psychologist may be obtained at an additional fee.
