Test of General Reasoning Ability (TOGRA)

A timed power test, 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.

Test structure

  • 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 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.

Technical information

  • Standardized on a sample of 3,013 individuals matched with 2010 U.S. Census statistics. 
  • 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.
