Ability tests are used to test a persons cognitive ability (perception, memory, reasoning, verbal and mathematical abilities etc).

Job knowledge Tests: Job knowledge tests attempt to directly assess an applicant’s comprehension of job requirements. Job knowledge tests can be one of two kinds. One type asks questions that directly assess knowledge of the duties involved in a particular job. For example, an item from a job knowledge test for a Medical Services Officer might be, “Describe the process to approach to a Doctor.” The other type of job knowledge test focuses on the level of experience with, and corresponding knowledge about, critical job tasks and tools/processes necessary to perform the job. For example, an applicant for the position of Executive, Support (MIS Department) might be asked to configure MS Outlook or replace hardware in a computer.
