The PAF is a convenient, objective measure of general mental ability and intelligence. It takes approximately 15 minutes to complete, and is based in part on SIGMA's experience in developing the Multidimensional Aptitude Battery-II, a world-class mental ability assessment that has been used to select NASA astronauts.
The PAF is available in two forms. Form A contains more difficult items and is more accurate at a high range than Form C. Form C's easier items are more accurate at the lower range of scores.
Each form of the PAF consists of 2 timed subtests, Verbal and Quantitative.
The Personnel Assessment Form (PAF) is designed to provide a convenient, objectively scorable measure of general mental ability or intelligence. Research has consistently found that general mental ability is one of the best predictors of job performance across a variety of employment settings.
