The Wonderlic Test was created by E. F. Wonderlic to gauge one’s knowledge in math, vocabulary and reasoning abilities way back in 1936. The only time you hear about it these days is in regards to the NFL combine.
The highest score possible is 50, meaning a person answered each question correct in the time allotted. The average score is 20, according to Wonderlic Inc., and system analysts and chemists average the best scores with 32 and 31, respectively.
“A person who scores an average of 10 and above is considered literate and, therefore, seen by most employers as suitable for less demanding professions.”
