    Re: QB wonderlic scores

    For those who may not know, the Wonderlic Personnel Test is a twelve-minute, fifty-question test used to assess the aptitude of prospective employees for learning and problem-solving in a wide range of occupations. The score is calculated as the number of correct answers given in the allotted time. A score of 20 is intended to indicate average intelligence.

    Here are 15 questions from the real test. In order to see how you'd match up, you only get 3 minutes, 36 seconds to answer all questions. Multiply your score by 3.333 to get your score.

    1. October, 2. January, 3. June, 4. September, 5 May.


    10. Which number in the following group of numbers represents the smallest amount?
    7 .8 31 .33 2


    11. In printing an article of 48,000 words, a printer decides to use two sizes of type. Using the larger type, a printed page contains 1,800 words. Using smaller type, a page contains 2,400 words. The article is allotted 21 full pages in a magazine. How many pages must be in smaller type?

    Re: Bradfor Scores 36 on Wonderlic

    I missed 2, questions 11 (skipped it and ran out of time before I could finish figuring it out) & 12 (I had no clue), for a score of 43. Let's see how some other ClanRammers do.

    Re: Bradfor Scores 36 on Wonderlic

    What I've always wondered is whether the prospects (particularly at QB) prepare for the Wonderlic. Certainly, one could take a few timed practice tests to gear up for the real thing.

    I mean... when you took the SAT, did you do it cold, or did you prepare? What about for graduate school... would you take the LSAT, MCAT or GMAT without preparing?

    These guys are auditioning for multi-million dollar jobs. You would think they'd prepare for every test, even the Wonderlic.

    Re: Bradfor Scores 36 on Wonderlic

    By itself these test scores are not the litmus test, however in the context of many other physical attributes it tells us whether a guy can sort through a tough situation on the field and make the smart decision.

    I am heartened to learn that Sam did well. He may be our field general at some point.

    Go Rams!

    Not to stir a hornet's nest, but I'm surprised there hasn't been some discussion of racial bias in this test.

    Not to mention that the only non-African American in the bottom 5 is Polish!

    Re: Bradfor Scores 36 on Wonderlic

    All standardized tests are to a material degree based on reading comprehension, especially to the extent that they are time compressed. Obviously, if you cant read very well, you arent going to score well on a test that requires you to read and answer 50 questions in 12 minutes. The ability to read and comprehend quickly is a more important skill in business than in football, not to say that its meaningless in football as a means of general intelligence, but it doesnt measure "football smarts." Its one tool in the bag of many in evaluating potential future success and it is certainly not impactful in and of itself, absent the consideration of other factors. The ability to read a defense and react quickly is not necessarily the same as reading and comprehending quickly as well.

    I think it would be really cool to see all the guys on the board take the wonderlic and see how everyone does.

    ramming speed to all

    I posted a smaller version of the tWonderlic above. There is no free version of the full test available online.
