Product Detail

The Numerical Data Interpretation Test (NDIT™), previously named Athena, goes beyond a candidate's typical math skills to identify the ability to manipulate and interpret numerical information from reports, charts, tables, or dashboards.

Numerical reasoning is an important skill for many work settings including executive, managerial, supervisory, professional, sales, administrative, and technical roles across most industry sectors. A job analysis will identify what job duties require numerical reasoning. NDIT is appropriate for jobs where data interpretation is used frequently or on critical job tasks.

NDIT™ assesses numerical reasoning ability related to the interpretation and manipulation of the types of numerical data routinely encountered in the workplace. Specifically, NDIT measures the ability to:

 

  • Correctly analyse and interpret numerical information presented in surveys, reports, charts, graphs, and dashboards

  • Draw logical conclusions and correct inferences from numerical data

  • Calculate values using basic arithmetic operators

  • Work with percentages

  • Identify when additional data is required to draw conclusions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The assessment contains 21 items and is timed with up to 30 minutes to complete. The items are of varying levels of difficulty to allow a full assessment of a candidate's ability and the timed element of the test provides insight on an individual's ability to work at speed and under pressure. The test includes both multiple choice and free response questions.

The assessment is suitable for general, graduate and management candidates and the assessment includes a scored report.
