The ACER Test of Abstract Reasoning (TAR) is a test of abstract (or non-verbal) reasoning. It is a relatively language-free assessment, used as a measure of general ability for selection into occupations with a moderate to high demand on reasoning and where the ability to think clearly to solve problems is important.
The ACER TAR can be administered as a Short Form (45 items - easier of the two assessments) or a Long Form (60 items - more challenging assessment).
The ACER TAR is able to be administered and scored online via the ACER Psychological Testing Platform (APT). Administrators send a request to their client to complete the assessment online, and are then provided with a concise report. APT provides you with more flexibility - ACER TAR credits can be used for your chosen TAR Assessment (short or long form).
