Responding to SHL numerical reasoning questionsWatch
Do you work them out using a calculator, pen and paper?
Or do you use Excel?
What’s your percentile?
Percentiles won’t be a good thing to compare against. People could do an identical test and have identical correct answers and have different percentile groups if they were assessed differently.
Even they vary. Plus people wouldn’t know what comparison group they would be up against
Do you know if there are any inductive reasoning tests that don't use shapes and instead use text? (I don't mean deductive reasoning though).
Is it even possible to have a text-based inductive reasoning test?
I have a qualification in designing and assessing these type of tests.
Yes there are text based tests but they are not call inductive tests. There are tests like the Watson Glaser and verbal reasoning tests.
Do you mean the BPS level A and B qualification?
Also now known as BPS Level 1 & 2
Calculator, pen and pencil. You could use excel I guess, but not sure it provides any advantage over a calculator. The questions are simple mathematically, it's about figuring out how to solve it quickly. Certainly wouldn't use excel if you didn't have 2 screens.
