How are spatial reasoning tests scored?

Spatial reasoning tests consist of various questions related to dimensional thinking. The number of correct answers will form your score. After that, your results may be compared to the results of other test-takers or the normative group.

What are spatial reasoning tests used for?

Spatial reasoning tests are used for assessing a person’s ability to think about objects in different dimensions. The set of questions will evaluate how well you can use your imagination and reasoning to make conclusions about these objects.

What do spatial reasoning tests involve?

Spatial reasoning tests involve inquiries based on objects pictured in 2 or 3 dimensions. You will have to mentally process these images to figure out the answer. Such questions might include mirror images, perspective-related pictures, two-dimensional shapes and cubes.

What do spatial reasoning tests measure?

Spatial reasoning tests measure your multi-dimensional thinking. You will receive pictures of some objects and will have to process them in your mind to get an answer to the question. Your performance in this test will indicate how well you process objects in space.

Where can I practice spatial reasoning tests?

Practicing is the best way to achieve the highest results in spatial reasoning tests. Our website provides hundreds of spatial reasoning questions for you to practice. Tips and guides will help you train your brain to work with the spatial processing of objects.

Which employers use spatial reasoning tests?

Spatial reasoning tests assess your ability to think about objects in different dimensions. Such skills are considered to be crucial for technical roles. Therefore, if you are applying to be an engineer or an architect you might be expected to pass these tests.

Spatial Reasoning Tests Tips

1Do your research

Every spatial reasoning test is different. Find out as much information beforehand, such as who the test provider is, how long the test is and whether it’s an online or offline test. Once you know all of this, you’ll be able to practice accordingly.

2Find alternative ways to prepare

Practice doesn’t have to be limited to working through old tests: try alternative ways to improve your spatial awareness. Whether it’s looking at 3D models, trying your hand at some non-verbal reasoning tests or abstract reasoning tests, using mirrors to draw reflections or assembling models from flat plans, you can make the activities fun while honing skills for your spatial reasoning test.

3Consider pen and paper

Remember to bring a pen and paper along with you to the test (check this is allowed). It can really help you to visualise answers and solve challenges both in practice and on the day.

4Think logically

It’s important not to panic, even if you can’t work out an answer. The spatial reasoning test is multiple-choice, so you can usually rule out a few options as definite ‘nos’. Then, try to apply logic to make a judgement call between any remaining options. Remember, if you have time at the end you can always come back to any tricky questions.

5Put the practice in

It goes without saying, but practice really is the best way to prepare for any aptitude test. When you do mock tests and practice spatial questions, try to recreate exam conditions so you get used to working against the clock with no external help.

6Identify your strong and weak areas

Better not to practice those spatial reasoning questions you find easy. Instead, try to concentrate only on those questions you may find difficult to answer. Work on your grey areas.

7Don't cheat

Many employers use verification tests to validate your previous test results. Publishers use special software which compares your answer patterns and performance between the online and subsequent supervised test.

    Patterns

    Look for the patterns, one bit at a time

  • Sweden

    February 17, 2021

    Observe all information given to you

    Don't overlook patterns because they may seem complicated. Try to look at the big picture (all info at once) and try to look at each box one at a team and see if you find patterns. If you think you've found a pattern, redo it if it does not work.
