The TOGRA is a speeded measure of reasoning ability and problem-solving skills designed for individual or group administration.
Features and benefits
As a result of extensive expert review and statistical analysis, the TOGRA’s racial, gender, and religious bias is minimal—ideal for any measure used for selection purposes.
Offers a wider variety of item content and greater test score stability than competing measures.
Yields a General Reasoning Index (GRI), a highly reliable score that reflects overall measurement of the general factor of reasoning and problem-solving skill.
Consists of items that assess verbal, nonverbal, and quantitative reasoning and problem-solving skills through tasks that are inductive as well as deductive in nature.
Requires only 16 minutes for administration and 2-3 minutes for scoring.
Administration and scoring are available through PARiConnect.
Two equivalent alternate forms (Blue and Green) enable you to retest and monitor progress without worrying about practice effects.
Can be administered to groups or individuals and using a computer or traditional paper and pencil. This flexibility makes the TOGRA a viable option for use in human resource and related industrial settings, schools, juvenile and adult justice systems, and clinical settings.
Standardized on a 2010-Census-matched sample of 3,013 individuals.
Multiple types of scores are provided, including z scores, normal curve equivalents, stanines, percentiles, and, for the younger ages, age equivalents.
An investigation of TOGRA scores’ relationship to examinees’ occupational data revealed expected patterns, with median GRI scores increasing as examinees’ industries moved from physically oriented occupations to business- and science-oriented occupations.
