The COPASIIL2 is a test of reason-ability and assesses the candidate's Cognitive/Thinking Ability.
The test consists of 30 items and should be completed in 20 minutes, the 30 items are presented in five groups. 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.
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.
The Level 1-Test only consists of the three basic classical structures the cognitive construct traditionally consists of. It consists of 15 test-items and takes 10 minutes to complete. The Level 2-Test assesses the same three cognitive substructures, but provides a much wider base to facilitate the evaluation of the cognitive construct more comprehensively and a well-founded basis. It consists of 30 test-items and takes 20 minutes to complete. The Level 3-Tests assesses the same three extended classic cognitive substructures as well as adding the three secondary specialist substructures to provide an all-inclusive cognitive assessment. It consists of 45 items and takes 30 minutes to complete.
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 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.
