Verbatim & Numeratum (V&N)

Work | Abilities | Academic Functioning | Screening

There is a common request for a special skills assessment for verbal and numerical assessments appropriate for use in South Africa’s unique context. Literacy in English and Mathematics are foundational to effective communication and the ability to use numbers in order to solve everyday business problems. The Verbatim (verbal ability) and Numeratum (numerical ability) have been developed in response to the expressed need to measure specific abilities and skills. This assessment is specifically recommended for screening, recruitment, and selection in jobs that require a Grade 11 English and/or Mathematical proficiency.
