About the test

The Communication test evaluates a candidate’s ability to communicate in the English language, including the capability to convey meaning and information through both spoken and written communication methods.

It’s an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for a variety of roles. A good candidate for any job that requires communication skills will be able to display competency in communicating clearly and concisely with the appropriate tone, use proper grammar and punctuation, practice active listening, and other related skills. This communication test can be used to screen a large group of candidates to select only those that display core communication skills to bring in for an interview.

This test requires candidates to demonstrate their communication skills in real-world scenarios through a series of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions.

Feedback

Your team doesn’t have anyone skilled in data analytics, so your boss asks you to do your best to analyze visitor behavior on the company’s website. A week later, you ask a colleague on a different team for feedback on your work so that you can improve it before presenting to your boss.

After reviewing your analysis, he says, “This makes no sense. Have you ever worked with data before?”

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
