Pearson Tests

Prepare for your next Pearson test with tailor-made practice materials.

Pearson owns the TalentLens platform, which provides a range of aptitude tests used by many aviation industry employers. These tests include DAT Next Generation and Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test (BMCT-ll), Watson Glaser and SOSIE 2nd Generation. All of these tests help employers to find the best talent possible when recruiting. Here are the tests Pearson produces:

Watson Glaser

The Watson Glaser test presents you with limited information in order to evaluate how you process information and make decisions. The test also offers an opportunity to show your ability to think outside the box, which is why it is most commonly used by law firms and other professional practices.


A RANRA (rust advanced numerical reasoning appraisal) most often accompanies the Watson Glaser test when employers are recruiting for a more senior or managerial role. Similar to the Watson Glaser test, it assesses critical thinking but uses numerical reasoning to do so.

Iris situational judgement

Designed for graduates, this test lays out common workplace scenarios and asks the challenging questions that require you to make decisions.

Pearson numerical reasoning assessment

A new addition to the Pearson TalentLens portal, this test is based on a numerical reasoning assessment. But it introduces some new concepts that you might not have seen before.


SOSIE is designed to measure a candidate’s personal values and personality traits. Tests like these help employers to determine whether you’re a good fit for the role and company you’re applying for.

Raven progressive matrices

Raven’s progressive matrices is a non-verbal aptitude test is designed to measure your lateral thinking and problem solving skills.
