Microsoft Word is the most commonly used word processing application for businesses worldwide. Known for its functional usability, compatibility and widespread availability, Microsoft Word can be used for a wide variety of purposes, from the production of newsletters and memos to that of reports and magazines. Thus, the ability to use Word properly is not just an asset for many job descriptions — it’s a necessity.

A candidate may list Microsoft Word as an area of competency on their resume or skills checklist, but how can you as an employer know what their idea of competency is? How can you accurately assess whether their skills are up to par?

Our Microsoft Word employment testing is the answer. Total Testing offers a selection of skills tests that are specific to Microsoft Word. Once you’ve chosen the test you’re looking for, you can administer it either in person or remotely. In addition, it can be provided to a candidate applying for a job posting or given to current employees to assess their level of Microsoft Word capability and gain insight into training needs.

Once the test has been taken, we’ll compile an easy-to-read report providing insights into their areas of strength, weakness and overall capability using Microsoft Word. This report will be emailed to you promptly, giving you an objective metric with which to gauge and redefine what “competency” means.
