Sigma Personnel Assessment Form - General Mental Ability Assessment


The  Sigma PAF contains two subtests, verbal and quantitative. The results of the subtests are combined to provide a measure of general mental ability or “g.”

What topics does the General Mental Ability Assessment (Sigma PAF) contain?
General mental ability involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think in abstract terms, comprehend complex ideas, and learn quickly from experience.

Verbal Subtest
The verbal subtest measures a person's understanding of words and ideas. This ability is effectively measured using items relating to a person's accumulated knowledge of diverse topics, the number of words or verbal concepts that have been learned, and the ability to recognize conceptual similarities among objects.

Quantitative Subtest
The quantitative subtest measures a person's reasoning and problem-solving abilities. The items in this subtest require generating solutions to various numerical problems. These problems require the respondent to extract the necessary elements and to use these elements to arrive at a correct answer quickly.

What is the time limit for each subtest?
Each subtest has a seven-minute time limit.
