Matrigma is a classic cognitive ability test built on a modern and secure web platform. Measuring general mental ability, therefore gives insight to a person’s ability to; problem solve, plan ahead and draw logical conclusions. Used to help predict; job performance, job satisfaction, voluntary turnover and training performance as well as counter-productive work behaviours.


Matrigma can be used as a stand-alone measure at the outset of a high-volume recruitment program, or in a complementary role for finalists at the end of the selection process. Matrigma’s non-verbal format makes for seamless integration across languages, and the problem-and-response items are randomised so that two candidates never take the exact same test.


Matrigma was published in 2010 by Assessio International, a Swedish test publishing house and consultancy organisation that has developed psychological tests since 1954. Matrigma is distributed by Hogan Assessment Systems, an internationally-known leader in personality assessment tools for selection, development and leadership.
