Control and Co-Ordination (Ball Game) Practice Test


This is an online hand-eye co-ordination assessment, measuring your ability to accurately use a joystick to control a dynamic object. This is the latest generation of our Co-ordination test, allowing you to practice your hand-eye co-ordination in a similar test to that used across pilot selection processes - please note that you will need to use a joystick to complete this test. Various types of hand-eye co-ordination tests are used by assessment centres and Symbiotics' hand-eye co-ordination test will allow you to practice your skills.


Hand-eye co-ordination tests are common in Pilot selection processes. Symbiotics' Co-ordination test allows you to practice your ability to control a dynamic object using a joystick to assess your hand eye co-ordination. At the start of this assessment you will receive instructions and get the chance to become familiar with the joystick. The assessment will then consist of a three-minute exercise, where your co-ordination skills will be measured.

Our Psychologists say

The Co-ordination assessment is a useful tool as it can help predict how well the candidate will be able to deal with the physical tasks throughout the training. This assessment not only measures the candidate’s current level of hand-eye co-ordination, but also assesses their ability to efficiently improve their skills and adapt quickly to new and demanding environments. The stronger their performance and learning the more likely they will be able to pick up new skills quickly throughout the training. This assessment requires the candidate to use flight controls, making the assessment highly relatable to the pilot role.
