HUCAMA Ability Factors

HUCAMA Ability Factors assesses how an individual processes information to predict their cognitive performance in a role. 

This ability test includes the following 3 components, each lasting 8 minutes:

  • Diagrammatic Matrices: Ability to infer relationships between objects

  • Number Series: Ability to infer relationships between numbers

  • Spatial Reasoning: Ability to mentally rotate 3-dimensional shapes

HUCAMA Ability Factors is suitable for universal application across all roles and measures both the speed and accuracy with which an individual has completed the assessment. The test uses non-verbal questions to minimise the advantage of prior language knowledge, which helps to minimise cultural bias.

HUCAMA Personality Factors

Consisting of 8 factors and 48 facets, HUCAMA Personality Factors identifies an individual's dispositional traits and preferences in the workplace. 

These 8 personality factors are:

  • Investigation

  • Structure

  • Support

HUCAMA Competency Factors

HUCAMA Competency Factors combines the Great 8 Competencies with advances in personality research to identify 48 competencies at work. These are grouped into 8 competency factors that are applicable to most professional and managerial roles and are aligned with the HUCAMA Personality Factors model.


The assessment includes 360° functionality, allowing individuals to nominate external raters to provide feedback on their performance in the workplace. Qualified practitioners can then use the computer-generated reports to explore gaps between self and others' perception of work-related competency.

The 8 competency factors are:

  • Evaluating Information

  • Structuring Work

  • Supporting Individuals

  • Coping with Pressure

  • Driving Success

  • Creating Solutions

  • Interacting with People

  • Exerting Influence
