Number Skills Test

Timing: From 3 to 7 minutes (3 separate sections)

The Number Skills Test measures a person’s skills required to work with numbers in a variety of settings. Research was conducted looking at the type of information typically required within most NVQ/SVQ curriculums. There was clear consensus about the criteria and subject matter used to evaluate and understand a person’s numeracy. These themes have been introduced in the questions within the number skills test.  Questions include themes such as money, temperature and data found in pie charts and bar charts.
