Numerical Estimation

Numerical Estimation tests are a type of aptitude test which aims to assess ones ability in mental arithmetic. This tests are more suited to junior roles, particularly those that require working with numbers. Numerical Estimation tests reflect an individual's comfort with numbers and also provide an indication of their level of ability - this can be subsequently used to decide on their suitability for a particular job. For example, as a cashier in a supermarket; although an individual may have use of a till calculator, their ability to 'estimate' the total and the change amounts is likely to ensure errors are kept to a minimum.
