Administrative & Clerical Test Details

Total Testing’s selection of administrative and clerical tests covers the breadth and depth of knowledge and skills required for these job positions. As a hiring manager, you need to know you can count on your new hire to have an eye for detail, basic math and grammar knowledge and the ability to communicate effectively and professionally over the telephone.

You may be able to discern several of these competencies during an in-person interview — but when it comes to making important hiring decisions, your time is limited. Most hiring managers simply can’t interview every promising candidate to deduce whether they’ve got the skills the job calls for.

Our series of online clerical proofreading tests allows you to discover whether a candidate is qualified and likely to succeed in the role early in the hiring process.

The clerical skills tests vary in format, but most include a series of multiple-choice, matching and true/false type questions. They range from 15 to 30 questions per test, with each individual test typically taking less than 10 minutes to complete.

Most tests include beginner, intermediate and advanced levels within the test you purchase. The test allows users to skip questions and check their work at the end of the test before submitting it. Each test is timed, with the finishing time recorded on the score report we email back to you.

Benefits of Using Employment Literacy Tests

Pre-employment and employment testing are proven to work. The insights gleaned from these quick, simple tests can save valuable time and money during the hiring process as you can whittle down the candidate pool to the ones most successful and qualified.

Total Testing’s selection of Administrative & Clerical tests covers a wide range of skill sets. You can choose specific areas such as the employment math assessment test or detail accuracy test for a broader overview of each candidate’s capabilities. If the job position requires regular or intensive knowledge of reading or math, you’ll want to ensure the successful candidate is fully qualified. In this case, you may choose to administer a pre-employment English test, math assessment test or a vocabulary test for employment.

The benefits of using Total Testing employment tests include:

  • Tests customized to your needs: With Total Testing, you can customize tests before administering them to candidates. Customization can entail adding or removing questions, adding a time limit, including special instructions, modifying the number of tries accepted per question and much more. Thanks to the customization option, tests will hone on exactly what you need.
  • Effective use of time: Employment tests allow you to narrow down your candidate pool in a time-sensitive manner. Rather than using HR personnel’s time to sift through surveys and conduct a wide range of interviews, the tests can do much of the legwork for you, saving you hours, days or weeks. As a result, our pre-employment testing can speed up the hiring process, allowing you to fill your needed positions more quickly.
  • Increased confidence in hiring decisions: With Total Testing, you know what kind of candidate you’re hiring. You can make your choice with hard data that shows their level of detail accuracy or clerical skills. You no longer need to hope they are fully qualified for the role — you will know because the candidate has already proved it.
  • Help from a professional team: We’re a small company. This means we can react nimbly to your needs as they arise. When you call, you’ll speak to a real person on the other end who is ready to help. The Total Testing team is comprised of experts who have professionally designed and deeply researched each test we provide. When you work with Total Testing, you’ll receive tests proven to work and hands-on assistance throughout the process.
