People with high test results in this area can handle numbers and arithmetic tasks very well. They quickly extract relevant information, solve numerical tasks correctly and think in quantitative categories.
After initial instruction and a trial task, the PROGRESSION test is completed in a time-limited manner. A series of numbers is shown per page, which can be extended by means of logical reasoning and by using basic arithmetic operations. The numbers must be entered in free text fields for this purpose. It is possible to skip items, and to scroll forwards and backwards.
The procedure is implemented in liquid format: the tasks are drawn from a pool and arranged according to increasing difficulty, whereby test difficulty and subject areas are kept constant for all participants.
Extracting information from given numerical material in order to recognise and apply underlying rules is not only relevant in classically associated fields of work such as engineering professions. The processing of complex problems with numerically intensive material increasingly plays a role in a wide range of professions.
Having a "feel for numbers" associated with numerical processing capacity is important wherever complex issues can be described quantitatively, and decisions are to be made on the basis of facts or numbers. Focusing on a numerical task allows a valid measurement of individual competence in dealing with demanding numerical content in a short time.
