Instructions to the examinee:
The test consists of simple arithmetic problems of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. No answer is greater than 9. It is important to note that this is not a test of mathematics since the problems are very easy. The problems and their suggested solutions appear on the computer screen one after the other, as in 1 + 1 = 2. Your task is to look at the problem and decide whether the proposed solution to the problem is correct or incorrect. If the solution is correct, press number “1” on the keypad (on the right side of the keyboard) as quickly as you can. If the solution is incorrect, as in 9 – 6 = 4, press number “2” on the keypad as quickly as you can.
The test is quite long. Most people need more than ten minutes to answer all the questions. Try to do your best. Do not guess. Try to concentrate throughout the test.
If you make a mistake, you cannot correct it since the program moves on to the next question. Do not worry about mistakes-everyone makes them. If you press a key other than “1” or “2”, a message will appear on the screen telling you to press number “1” or number “2” to continue the test, since only answers of “1” or “2” are acceptable.
To summarize, these are your tasks:
- You must give an answer. This means pressing number “1” if you think the solution to the problem is correct and pressing number “2” if you think the solution to the problem is incorrect.
- Answer as quickly as you can by pressing the appropriate key. The computer measures your response in thousands of a second. Guesses are inappropriate. Try to avoid guessing.
