Pearson Education is an international testing company based in the United Kingdom. Even if you haven't heard of them specifically, you may have heard of some of their tests. Pearson Assessment, Pearson TalentLens, and Pearson Vue are all part of Pearson Education, although in the UK aptitude tests fall mostly under the name Pearson TalentLens. If you have come across a test employing any of the names above, you are most likely taking a Pearson TalentLens test.
There are several key Pearson TalentLens products:
