The Basic Math Skills II – Decimals test should be used where employees need to be competent in basic math on their jobs. The test points up areas of deficiency that could be remediated by targeted training on the job.

Therefore, we advise against allowing candidates to use calculators for this test.
We recommend using this for any position where you need to know employees’ level of math skills and areas of deficit.
