COPAS II : COGNITIVE PROFILE ASSESSMENT

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.

BACKGROUND TO COPAS II Level  1 Test

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.

BACKGROUND TO COPAS II Level 2 Test

The Level 2 Test is a test of reasoning-ability and assesses the candidate's Cognitive/Thinking Ability. In this level the following two support factors are added to each of the relevant verbal and non-verbal factors, namely Analytical & Logical and Deductive Verbal Reasoning and Perceptual Reasoning and Acuity Perception as well as a few more Numerical test-items to the latter.

The Level 2 Test assesses the same three cognitive substructures as level 1, but provides a much wider base to facilitate the evaluation of the cognitive construct more comprehensively and resting on  a well-founded basis. It consists of 30 test-items and takes 21 minutes to complete. The first four groups consist of 5 items each and the last group which consists of numerical items consists of 10 items. Each group assesses a particular substructure the concept of cognitive ability consists of and is allotted a specific time-limit to complete it in.

BACKGROUND TO COPAS II Level 3 Test

The Level 3 Test  is a test of reasonability and assesses the candidate's Cognitive/Thinking Ability. The level assesses the same three extended classic cognitive substructures assessed in level 1 and 2, as well as adding three further secondary specialist substructures to provide an all-inclusive cognitive assessment.  It consists of 45 items and takes 31 minutes to complete.

In Level 3 the following three components are added: Spatial Visualisation Ability, Technical & Mechanical Insight/Reasoning & Original, Creative & Intuitive Thinking/Reasoning.
