What Is the Cognify Test?

The Cognify game based assessment is a test that usually is given as part of the hiring process of many companies such as IBM, Australia Police, Fire and Rescue New South Wales (NSW), and Ashurst.

The test comprises up to six mini-games, each timed between 3-5 minutes, with a total of 30 minutes to complete. The games are divided into three cognitive skill sections:

  • Problem-Solving – They measure your ability to learn and solve problems without prior knowledge. Problem-solving skills are predictors of fast learning and success in the workplace. 
  • Numerical Reasoning – Here, you will be measured on your comprehension of mathematical and quantitative concepts. Numerical skills indicate whether you possess the mathematical aptitude to perform daily math-based tasks. 
  • Verbal Reasoning – This section measures your reading and writing abilities, such as spelling and grammar. Verbal skills indicate how well you can identify errors in text.

Studying with our Cognify practice test will help you better understand the goals and complexities of each game.

Other popular gamified assessments include Pymetrics, Arctic Shores, HireVue, McKinsey Problem Solving and the P&G Assessment

Cognify Tally Up Game

This Cognify game features two sets of tokens, each one adds up to a certain value. You have to choose the side with the highest value of tokens or, if they are equal, assign the equal sign. The game consists of 35 rounds – each one with a 5-second time limit to choose the highest or equal value.

Each token is made of different shapes and colors with different values. The total value of each token set is determined by adding the numbers inside each token. The following are different kinds of tokens and their values. 

  • Void Token  marked with a line inside it which means the value is 0 and you should discard them.
  • Multipliers  you can differentiate these tokens since they are embedded within a dashed line. This means each token is worth double its value. 
  • Mega multipliers – this marker is similar to Multipliers. Instead of referring to a specific token, Mega Multipliers encompass an entire token set and double all of its total value.


Here is an example of a simple set of tokens.
