What does Numerical Reasoning Test measure?
NRT is a test of numerical intelligence, which manifests itself in the ability to understand quantitative concepts and to manipulate with numerical symbols. People with high numerical intelligence understand the basic mathematical principles well, they are able to work with numbers effectively and they can use these skills in solving practical problems, which involves numbers and/or their relations in any form.
Who do we recommend it for?
Numerical intelligence is the key ability wherever one needs to solve numerical problems on a regular basis and make decisions based on numerical information (as for example the position of financial advisor, salesman, financial manager, accountant, data analyst etc.).
What is Numerical Reasoning Test?
NRT finds out about the level of numerical intelligence by way of 16 tasks, where the tested person’s task is to understand instructions, read the required information out of a table and/or a graph and then use this information in a way that allows him/her to answer the question. The test assumes only the knowledge of the four basic arithmetical operations (+, -, *, /) and understanding of a few basic mathematical concepts as for example percentage or ratio of values. That means that the main difference in the performance of the tested people is given mainly by the efficiency they are able to use for understanding the mathematical essence of a given task, reading the key information out of the table and/or the graph and the identification of the right order of the mathematical operations to make.
HOW DOES NUMERICAL REASONING TEST WORK?
Testing from test taker’s home or under controlled testing conditions. Available in English, and 8 languages (Czech, German, Hungarian, Polish, Serbian, Slovak, Romanian, Russian).
Fill out online on our user-friendly interface. NRT consists of 16 numerical problems with 26-minute time limit.
Automatically generated feedback report for both the test taker and the test user. Test results are compared to norm group of approximately 200 individuals.
A testees’ task is to analyze numerical data presented in the table and/or on the graph, read the question and finally select the correct answer from eight offered options (a – h). For calculating the answers testees can use their own calculator, paper and pencil. If they do not have access to these aids they can use electronic versions of them that are part of the on-line testing platform.
