Assesses complex problem-solving ability.
Complex problem-solving ability is the ability to acquire new knowledge in order to solve a problem and to apply it purposefully. This ability is comprised of knowledge acquisition ability and knowledge application ability. The problem situations presented in COMPRO are intransparent and dynamic. In contrast to traditional cognitive ability tests the test therefore assesses a number of cognitive aspects that interact in the solving of complex problems.
COMPRO can be used for queries that arise in personnel psychology; it is particularly suitable for use in connection with manufacturing and safety assessments and academic testing. COMPRO discriminates particularly well between very able respondents.
