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.

Extended Research Timeline
Budget Adjustment
Resource Allocation
Project Scheduling
Try practice test
You are tasked with adjusting the budget for a year-long research project that involves three sequential phases:

1. The Initial Research (IR) phase has an allocated annual budget of $200,000. By the end of the first quarter, $80,000 has already been spent.
2. The Data Analysis (DA) phase is scheduled to begin after the completion of the IR phase, with a planned quarterly budget of $50,000.
3. The Final Reporting (FR) phase, which follows the DA phase, has a fixed budget of $100,000, irrespective of its duration.

The project encounters a few changes:

1. The IR phase is projected to need an additional $20,000 for each of the remaining three quarters due to increased research complexity.
2. The DA phase is anticipated to extend into an additional quarter, meaning it will now take three quarters instead of the initially planned two.
3. The FR phase will not incur any additional costs and will not be affected by the DA phase extension.

Calculate the additional budget required by the end of the project in light of these changes.

Positive correlation
Correlation vs. Causation
Try practice test
Myra is working on her thesis for which she created a scatter plot of the number of teachers and the number of college graduates for cities in Australia. She noticed a positive correlation. Which of these do you think is the probable explanation for this correlation?
A: Teachers encourage people to go to college, so an increase in the number of teachers leads to an increase in the number of college graduates. 

B: Some college graduates choose teaching as a profession after graduating, so an increase in the number of college graduates also leads to an increase in the number of teachers.

C: There are more college graduates and teachers in higher income cities, so income is a confounding variable here, make it difficult to prove causation between number of teachers and number of college graduates. 

D: Cities with a higher population have more teachers and more college graduates, so the correlation is due to a third variable (population of city).

E: The provided data is insufficient, so it is extremely difficult to establish the reason for the correlation.

F: Most college students choose non-teaching professions after graduating, which explains the correlation. 

G: In Australia, college students are encouraged by their teachers to choose teaching as a profession after graduating.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Quantitative Aptitude 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.

Quantitative Aptitude Hiring Test FAQs

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. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

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
  • Screen proctoring
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser
  • Copy paste protection

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.
