Numeric Reasoning Aptitude Test
Hire candidates for positions with situations where they need to think through math problems on the job.
Purpose: Our Numeric Reasoning Test is an excellent measure of basic numerical reasoning ability. The Numeric Reasoning Test is one of our aptitude test offerings and it measures the degree to which candidates can work comfortably with quantitative concepts.
Use this test in situations where candidates need to think through math problems on the job: for example sales candidates who have to think through quotes in their head as they talk to a customer, or customer service candidates who need to quickly calculate the cost of a set of services that have been tailored to that individual request, or accountants / banking candidates who need to be very agile in computing large sets of numbers, as well as quick to spot errors, and sharp about looking for causes of imbalances. We often recommend using the Numeric Reasoning Test prior to hiring accounting personnel, finance clerks, estimators, buyers, bank tellers, loan officers, field sales candidates, managers and supervisors.
About the Test: This test is untimed.
What the Report Gives You: Candidates scoring high on the Numerical Reasoning Test handle their responsibilities for quantitative tasks quickly, easily and with a minimum of errors. Candidates scoring low on the Numerical Reasoning Test have a harder time thinking through quantitative problems than do candidates with higher scores. They do not spot inaccuracies very quickly and they do not reason through the causes of problems in the dataset as quickly as others.
Testing Process: Online aptitude testing provides immediate reporting. Proctoring is desirable but not required.
Validity Information: In several empirical studies, this test was significantly correlated r=.28 with teamwork, r=.30 with task performance, and r=.29 with overall performance in a number of entry-level jobs. We were able to demonstrate that performing well on this test predicted success in managerial roles when scoring more than the 60th percentile produced a group that was 300% more likely to survive the first year on the job.
