Detailed Description+

Measurement of general cognitive ability based on logical reasoning with a focus on the lower performance range. The simply designed item material is easy to recognize visually and can therefore be presented up to an old age. In addition, the test can be carried out on mobile devices or with supervisor-supported instruction, if needed.

Therefore, the test is suitable for application in the following areas: clinical psychology and neuropschology, human resources, particularly in the safety & security area as well as for occupational and organizational psychology assessment situations, in the education area and special fields of psychological assessment such as assessment of fitness to drive.

Test forms+

The test items of the BMT can be presented adaptively, randomized, or linearly depending on the setting. Easy, medium, and difficulty forms are available for all three presentation types. There is an option to switch between classic and supervisor-supported instruction. In addition, the duration, difficulty of the test and abort criteria can be defined individually.

Task+

The respondent's task is to add the missing sixth element in a 2x3 matrix with five abstract patterns or figures. For this purpose, a respondent finds out which rules the presented figures follow or according to which rules the patterns were created. The respondent then selects the matching element that completes the matrix from five proposed patterns/figures.
