Measure Reasoning Ability and Problem-Solving Skills with Individual or Group Administration


A timed power test, the TOGRA is a speeded measure of reasoning ability and problem-solving skills designed for individual or group administration. Unlike many similar measures, the TOGRA can be administered via computer.

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.
  • Two equivalent forms allow retesting and progress monitoring capabilities.
  • Because it is a speeded measure of reasoning, it may also be useful to compare TOGRA performance with performance on power tests such as the Reynolds Adaptable Intelligence Test (RAIT) or the Reynolds Intellectual Assessment Scales (RIAS) to determine whether testing accommodations are needed on other timed standardized tests.
  • Administration and easy scoring are available through PARiConnect. Paper administration is also available.
  • 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.
