Predictive Index Assessment: Course Content

*Note: Prepterminal’s Comprehensive PI course covers both Predictive Index Cognitive Assessment(PICA, PLI) and Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment(PIBA) tests.

What Is a Good Predictive Index Score?

Once the PI test is completed, a score is given based on the number of items answered correctly, with no penalty for incorrect answers. The average raw score on the PI Cognitive Assessment ranges from 17-23, but it is assumed that the population average on the PI Cognitive Assessment test is 20 correct answers. Once the raw score is taken, a scale score is calculated between 100-450, with the average score being 250, which is equivalent to a raw score of ~20/50.

This is largely because of the test’s harsh time limit. With only 12 minutes to answer 50 problems, you won’t have more than 15 seconds to spend on any individual question. You won’t have a second to spare. That’s why it is so important that you make sure you practice ahead of time and take sample tests.

Predictive Index has produced a table of scores you should aim for based on the role you want.

PI Cognitive Assessment Test Format and Free Practice Tests

The PI contains three general categories: Numerical reasoning, Verbal comprehension, and Abstract thinking.

PrepTerminal’s PI Cognitive Assessment preparation course explores each question type in-depth, examining the composition of each question to equip you with the fundamental understanding required to overcome the challenging requirements of this test.

On the PI Cognitive Assessment, questions are asked on the following nine subjects:

PI Cognitive Assessment Number Series

You will be given a sequence of numbers and will need to find a connection between the numbers to decide which number comes next. These questions give your prospective employer an idea of how you logically reason with numbers.

The complexity of these questions can vary, ranging from simple arithmetic to more complicated interleaved sequences. When approaching these questions, it is recommended to start by checking for a simple relationship between the given numbers. If you can’t see a simple relationship, you will need to examine the question further to see if there is a complex connection.
