The COPAS II is measuring the candidate’s cognitive function at three levels, by using the Verbal and Non-Verbal approach as three separate tests. The English language is used in the verbal component of the test.
Each of the tests also provides an Integrated Mental Ability, Accuracy and Complexity of Work scale. The average time available to complete the test-items in each test, is approximately 0.67 minutes per item. Perhaps the most important benefit the different levels offer its (potential) user, is the choice he/she has of instruments to serve his/her unique set of needs in practice best.
The COPAS II is thus assessing the cognitive construct by using the three traditional and classic components of verbal, non-verbal and numeric approaches in a progressive way in the three increasing levels of complexity and comprehensivity within the construct.
The Level 1 Test only consists of the three basic classical structures the cognitive construct traditionally consists of. It consists of 22 test-items and takes 13½ minutes to complete.
