Overview of Tests
This module is designed to test a candidate’s numeracy, i.e. the ability to understand and work with numbers in a professional setting. The collection of maths & numeracy assessments enable you to identify and evidence the candidate skills at the level and type required by either the individual or the role in question.
Covering a range of assessments, this module can be utilised to identify mathematical skills such as extracting data trends from charts & tables to basic math without a calculator within a variety of industries and roles, whether this be for initial recruitment or training and development through skills gap identification.
All tests within the Numeracy Module are available at three different difficulty levels – Fundamental, Core or Professional. At the point of assignment, the level can be assigned.
Each of the assessments are specifically designed around subject matters. These allow you to easily identify and assign the appropriate assessment for the role or subject knowledge required. This also allows the results to be presented specifically for the subject or numeric skill being measured providing you with a clear and comparable output for each candidate.
Assigning the appropriate subject assessment to the candidate minimises the length of the assessment, eliminates the need for the candidate to have to answer unnecessary/unrelated mathematical questions and ensures the results presented are accurate to that subject being measured.
