There are two different types of tests in the Infinity series. They are:
The Kenexa Infinity Series
Numerical reasoning – These Kenexa tests are created from a bank of 174 numerical reasoning items which are defined using the 3-parameter Item Response Theory model. These tests are 20 minutes in length and contain 20 different questions from a large bank of possibilities. They test the candidate’s ability to interpret and analyse numerical data, work out percentages, and understand profit margins.

Verbal reasoning – In these tests the candidate is given 20 minutes to answer 24 questions. There will be a paragraph of information followed by a statement. This statement will either be true, false, or unable to say based on the information contained in the paragraph. These tests are used to make sure employees are able to communicate with the rest of the team as well as the customers. Read more about Kenexa VRT or start practising these tests here.
Kenexa CAT Recently Kenexa have launched a new system called CAT, Computer Adaptive Tests, which is a series of different tests that increase in difficulty as you progress through them. They are comprised of three different test types, the Kenexa verbal reasoning test, the Kenexa numerical reasoning test, and the Kenexa logical reasoning test. We have already mentioned the verbal and numerical reasoning test above but have yet to discuss the Kenexa logical reasoning test.
The Kenexa Logical Reasoning TestIn this test you will be presented with a series of different shapes. You will need to select the missing pattern in the sequence. These tests assess your ability to make correct conclusions and assumptions using the information that is in the sequence. These are commonly known as abstract reasoning tests and are becoming more popular in the job application process. For more information on these tests as well as a full example with an explanation click here.
The Prove It SeriesThis series of assessments and tests is much more specific than the general tests. Whereas the numerical and verbal tests can be used for general gathering of information on candidates, the Prove It series tests personal abilities in many different areas. Whilst they do reveal personality traits, they do so in a different way. For example, there is a typing skills assessment which is used for secretarial work. If there are any specific tasks that a candidate will need to do once they have the job, such as computer literacy in any Microsoft product, there are tests available to facilitate this.
The Prove It series is a web based portal where candidates log in and select the Kenexa test that they need to complete. With over 1000 different tests, Kenexa gives the company a complete testing service.
The Kenexa BMQUnlike the infinity series, the Kenexa BMQ is used specifically for managers in the retail, leisure, and hospitality environments. In this series the numerical and verbal reasoning tests are 15 minutes in length and are similar to those described above. However, on top of these tests is a 20 minute personality questionnaire with seven different key values at its core. These values are:
- Rule orientation
- Social desirability
The numerical and verbal reasoning tests are slightly different to those of the Infinity series. The reason for this is because they are very closely related to management roles with the passages and questions relating closely to the tasks and challenges that manager's face on a day to day basis.

In SummaryAs we have seen, there are various means that a company using a series from Kenexa can use to assess their applicants. It is important to bear in mind that these tests are like nothing you will have taken in a typical university course. In fact, without proper guidance and practice even the brightest of minds have been known to struggle to do themselves justice taking these tests. Here at JobTestPrep we have all the tools to help you achieve the maximum on your Kenexa assessment test. With not only a host of tests that can be taken in a timed test environment, but also full explanations explaining the logic and reasoning behind each question. We look forward to assisting you here at JTP. Good luck in your job application!
