Description

The TOGRA is a speeded measure of reasoning ability and problem-solving skills designed for individual or group administration.

Features and Benefits

  • As a result of extensive expert review and statistical analysis, the TOGRA’s racial, gender, and religious bias is minimal—ideal for any measure used for selection purposes to avoid adverse impact.
  • Offers a wider variety of item content and greater test score stability than competing measures.
  • Yields a General Reasoning Index (GRI), a highly reliable score that reflects overall measurement of the general factor of reasoning and problem-solving skill.
  • Consists of items that assess verbal, non-verbal, and quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills through tasks that are inductive as well as deductive in nature.
  • Requires only 16 minutes for administration and 2-3 minutes for scoring.
  • Administration and scoring are available through PARiConnect..

Test structure

  • Two equivalent alternate forms (Blue and Green) enable you to retest and monitor progress without worrying about practice effects.
  • May be administered to groups or individuals and using a computer or traditional paper-and-pencil. This flexibility makes the TOGRA a viable option for use in human resource and related industrial settings, schools, juvenile and adult justice systems and clinical settings.

Technical information

  • Standardised on a 2010-Census-matched sample of 3,013 individuals.
  • Multiple types of scores are provided, including z-scores, normal curve equivalents, stanines, percentiles, and for the younger ages, age equivalents.
  • An investigation of TOGRA scores’ relationship to examinees’ occupational data revealed expected patterns, with median GRI scores increasing as examinees’ industries moved from physically oriented occupations to business- and science-oriented occupations.
