About

CEB's SHL Verbal Reasoning tests for technical support, administrative and operational positions measure two types of skills:

  1. General language skills: vocabulary, grammar, and logic within sentences.
  2. Verbal understanding of written data.

These skills are assessed by a few tests:

  • Following Instructions (VTS1) - measures the ability to follow written instructions in technical topics.
  • Verbal Comprehension (VT1.1) - measures basic language skills required for technical work.
  • Technical Understanding (VT5.1, VT5.2) - the candidate is required to answer questions about a written passage in a technical context.
  • Verbal Usage - Questions present sentences with 2 missing words and 5 answer choices to complete these words. The candidate is evaluated for vocabulary, grammar and spelling.
  • Verbal Comprehension (VP5.2a) - the candidate is required to answer questions based on understanding written information.

In addition, most candidates are required to sit a Verify Verbal Reasoning test. This test is administered online and verified in a shortened version at the assessment centre. The tests measures the ability to analyse and interpret written information.
