Watson Glaser Tests

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

Watson Glaser is an assessment provider that focuses on drawing out a candidate's creative flair and ability to think outside the box. As a result, it’s often used by aviation companies when they’re hiring new staff. Presenting you with limited information, the assessment consists of 40 questions that need to be completed within 20-30 minutes. There is an older version that is 80 questions long, but this is rarely used anymore.

The Watson Glaser test

The test itself is split into the following five sections:

Section 1 – Inference

In this section you will be given a passage of information and a related statement. You will then need to decide whether the statement is true, false or if you cannot say, based on the information you’ve read.

Section 2 – Recognising assumptions

Again, you’ll be given a short passage of information and a statement which is more of an assumption. You will then need to decide whether the assumption can be made from the information provided. This is to test your ability to separate fact from fiction.

Section 3 - Deduction

After reading through some information, you'll have to decide whether the associated conclusions are justified or not.

Section 4 - Interpretation

Here, you’ll need to look at the weight of various arguments relating to a particular issue. The passage of text will follow with a conclusion, and you will be asked to determine whether this conclusion is accurate, given the information provided

Section 5 – Evaluation of arguments

Determining the strength or weakness of an argument is what you’re being assessed on here. You’ll read a question followed by an argument, and then you’ll need to decide whether the argument is directly related to the question and if it’s important or not.
