Premium questions with real-world problems

The Administrative Assistant test evaluates candidates’ competency in attention to detail, basic Excel spreadsheets, time management, written communication, and interpersonal skills, as well as their general aptitude for logical, numerical, and verbal reasoning.

It’s an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for office-based clerical roles, such as administrative assistants, receptionists, secretaries, and office coordinators. A good candidate for an administration assistant job will be able to display a high level of interpersonal skills, excellent written communication, competency with basic spreadsheet usage, the ability to prioritize their work, proficiency in scheduling tasks for themselves and others, thoroughness in detail-oriented work, an aptitude for understanding numerical information, thorough comprehension of written information presented in reports and emails, and the ability to make logical conclusions about facts and figures.

This test requires candidates to demonstrate their abilities by performing assignments in spreadsheet software as well as answering a series of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions. Candidates can use either their personal copy of Microsoft Excel or the free web version of Excel to complete the test.

Verbal Reasoning Most effective summary New Public

When writing an argumentative essay, it's very important to establish credibility with the audience. Providing inaccurate or false information is a surefire way to lose credibility with the reader. Once the essay’s credibility is lost, the reader will be less likely to believe other statements even if they are backed up by facts.
