Information processing tasks test a person’s ability to process information. An example of an information processing task is one where a tester reads a number sequence, leaving a short space for an answer between each number. The person being tested needs to add "2" to the first number read out and give their answer. The person then needs to retain that number they have just answered and add it to the next number the tester calls out and so on.
