Multiple Sequences in Diagrammatic Reasoning Tests
Diagrammatic reasoning tests that consist of multiple flow sequence charts belong to the group of diagrammatic reasoning tests most frequently administered by graduate employers. Often, multiple process sequences in diagrammatic reasoning tests comprise series of inputs, outputs and operators that may be presented in the form of letters, numbers or symbols.

As you can see from the above diagrammatic reasoning test sequence the operators are marked with letters whereas inputs or outputs are marked with symbols. In such test your task is to determine what effect each of the operators is having on the input in order to produce output.

 

Single Input/ Output Flow Sequence Charts
Single input/output flow sequence charts belong to the group of diagrammatic reasoning tests frequently administered by graduate employers. As it can be seen from the figure below, the single input/output flow charts tend to be constructed of single sequence with inputs, outputs and operators. Depending on the nature of the tests, your task may be to mentally process outputs with operators in order to define inputs. The main aim of the assessment is to assess mental, logical or abstract reasoning ability of an individual. Additionally, single input/output flow charts are mainly distinguished from process charts with multiple sequences by its defined operators where effect of each of the operators is defined for you.

Numerical Sequences in Diagrammatic Reasoning Tests
Often, diagrammatic tests may incorporate numerical data coded in signs or symbols. In such assessments numerical value is assigned to each symbol where at times the same symbols may have different values when presented in different colours. To demonstrate this, consider figure below where numerical value of each of the symbol is shown on the left where black colour doubles the value of each of the symbols. The main aim of such assessments as below may be to balance the sides of square equally. Numerical sequences in diagrammatic reasoning tests assess you logical reasoning aptitude along with your numerical aptitude.
