The Verbatim and Numeratum tests help professionals to ascertain a participant’s level of verbal and numerical reasoning ability, which are key aspects in the screening, recruitment and selection settings.

There is an expressed need to measure specific abilities and skills that are not necessarily measured by general mental ability assessments. The most common request for special skills assessment is for verbal and numerical assessments appropriate for use in South Africa’s unique context. The Verbatim (verbal ability) and Numeratum (numerical ability) were developed to meet this need.

*The Verbatim and Numeratum can be used separately or in combination.

Assessment Scales

  • Synonyms: The ability to identify words that are the same or similar in meaning.
