Adaface Numerical Reasoning Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Analysts



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The numerical reasoning test helps recruiters and hiring managers identify qualified candidates from a pool of resumes, and helps in taking objective hiring decisions. It reduces the administrative overhead of interviewing too many candidates and saves time by filtering out unqualified candidates who do not have an aptitude for numbers.

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for the role. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The Numerical Reasoning Test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the skills to do well on the job.

The test is designed to filter out candidates for roles like:

  • Data Analyst
  • Business Analyst
  • Product Manager
  • Product Analyst
  • Program Manager
  • Financial Analyst
Reason #2

No trick questions

Traditional assessment tools use trick questions and puzzles for the screening, which creates a lot of frustration among candidates about having to go through irrelevant screening assessments.

The main reason we started Adaface is that traditional pre-employment assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate candidates. At Adaface, our mission is to help companies find great candidates by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role.

Reason #3

Non-googleable questions

We have a very high focus on the quality of questions that test for on-the-job skills. Every question is non-googleable and we have a very high bar for the level of subject matter experts we onboard to create these questions. We have crawlers to check if any of the questions are leaked online. If/ when a question gets leaked, we get an alert. We change the question for you & let you know.

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Numerical Reasoning Test will be non-googleable.

Magic bag
Algebra
Solve
Alex’s uncle is a magician who gave them a magic bag in which coins get doubled each time you put those coins into it. Initially, Alex had few coins with them. So, Alex put all the coins, and the coins got doubled. Alex took out all the coins and gave a few to their friend and then again put the remaining coins back in the bag. The coins doubled again; Alex took out all the coins again and gave a few coins to their second friend. Alex then put the remaining coins in the bag and the coins doubled again. Alex took out all the coins and gave a few coins to their third friend. 
There were no coins left with Alex when Alex gave coins to the third friend and Alex gave an equal number of coins to each friend. What is the minimum number of coins Alex had initially and how much did Alex give to each friend?
A: Started with 3 coins
B: Started with 5 coins
C: Started with 6 coins
D: Started with 7 coins
E: Started with 9 coins
F: Gave 3 coins in every turn
G: Gave 4 coins in every turn
H: Gave 5 coins in every turn
I: Gave 7 coins in every turn
J: Gave 8 coins in every turn
K: Gave 9 coins in every turn

Three Clocks
Time
Solve
In my house, there are three clocks of different shapes – a round clock, a square clock, and a rhombus clock. The rhombus clock is always accurate whereas the round clock gains 2 minutes every day and the square clock loses 2 minutes every day. I checked the clocks on July 22nd, 2007 at 10 PM, and they were showing different times.
Two hours later, when I checked, the clocks were showing the same time, then on which date will all three clocks show the same time again?
A: 17 July 2008 
B: 23 Sep 2007
C: 25 July 2009
D: 19 Aug 2008

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Numerical Reasoning Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

Reason #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Numerical Reasoning Test from your dashboard by entering their email address.

Public link: You can create a public link for each test that you can share with candidates.

API or integrations: You can invite candidates directly from your ATS by using our pre-built integrations with popular ATS systems or building a custom integration with your in-house ATS.

Reason #7

Detailed scorecards & comparative results

Reason #8

High completion rate

Adaface tests are conversational, low-stress, and take just 25-40 mins to complete.

This is why Adaface has the highest test-completion rate (86%), which is more than 2x better than traditional assessments.

Number Series
Tables & Graphs
Currency & Units Conversion
Percentages
Compound interest

Graph interpretation questions involve both numerical/mathematical skills as well as reasoning skills.

Data Visualization
Profit & Loss

The concept of Time and Work is similar to that across all Arithmetic topics, i.e. the concept of Proportionality.

FAQs

What is a numerical reasoning test?

A numerical reasoning test measures a candidate's ability to understand, analyze and draw conclusions from data presented in the form of text, charts, tables or graphs.

For what type of roles should you use a numerical reasoning test?

It makes sense to use a numerical reasoning test for roles that require a high aptitude for numbers. For roles that require working with financials (budgets, projections), business analysis, sales & working with spreadsheets, using a numerical reasoning test can be critical to avoid a bad hire.

Can I combine multiple skills into one custom assessment?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify.

Do you have any anti-cheating or proctoring features in place?

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  • Non-googleable questions
  • IP proctoring
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser

Read more about the proctoring features.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

What experience level can I use this test for?

Each Adaface assessment is customized to your job description/ ideal candidate persona (our subject matter experts will pick the right questions for your assessment from our library of 10000+ questions). This assessment can be customized for any experience level.

Does every candidate get the same questions?

Yes, it makes it much easier for you to compare candidates. Options for MCQ questions and the order of questions are randomized. We have anti-cheating/ proctoring features in place. In our enterprise plan, we also have the option to create multiple versions of the same assessment with questions of similar difficulty levels.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.

What is the cost of using this test?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I get a free trial?

Yes, you can sign up for free and preview this test.
