What is it?
The Numerical Inventory is a timed test inventory of numerical computation and reasoning.
It is composed of the following types of numerical items:
- arithmetic computation,
- chart interpretation,
- number series and
- table interpretation.
The item type switches after a few items of each type, requiring the candidate to repeatedly shift among the different types of numerical problem, demonstrating flexibility and thought agility.
How does it work?
It can be administered with a fixed total time (i.e. 20 minutes to cover the 30 items),or left open-ended while recording and reporting the time taken on each question. The latter option allows for separately measuring speed and accuracy. The Numerical Inventory differentiates candidates who can quickly perform calculations and reach precise, accurate solutions to numerical problems which provides insight into a candidate’s computational accuracy and quantitative reasoning capabilities..
How does it help you?
The Numerical Inventory is a superior measure of abilities that add strong predictive power to assessment solutions. It was created for demanding roles that require successful performers to perform calculations or draw accurate conclusions from statements, charts, tables, or graphs.
