Description: Math Skills measures a basic understanding of mathematical computation and concepts (e.g., making change, calculating percentages, applying discounts, basic addition, subtraction, division and multiplication). The ability to solve these types of problems has also been related to speed of learning and general problem solving skills. This test is appropriate for jobs requiring knowledge of basic math functions (e.g., cashiers, tellers, basic accounting, payroll, etc.).
About the Applicant:
This individual's Math Skills score falls within the Moderate range. While some individuals who score in this range demonstrate the characteristics of a quick learner who solves problems with an understanding of basic mathematical concepts, others (particularly those who score at the low end of the range), at times, may have trouble consistently demonstrating these abilities. More in-depth interviewing and reference checks focusing on math skills may be a good idea for this individual if this characteristic is important for job success.
