Premium questions with real-world problems

The MS Excel test evaluates a candidate’s ability to work with spreadsheets, including the knowledge of how to organize, calculate, analyze, and visualize data contained within a spreadsheet.

It’s an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for a variety of job roles. A good candidate for any job requiring the use of spreadsheets will be able to display competency with using functions, writing formulas, sorting and filtering data, and creating accurate charts. This MS Excel test can be used to screen large groups of candidates to select only those with the required Excel knowledge to bring in for an interview.

This test requires candidates to download data files, perform assignments within spreadsheet software, and upload their solution files for automatic evaluation. Candidates can use either their personal copy of Microsoft Excel or the free web version of MS Excel to complete the test.

Pass/fail grouping

Our tests are designed to put candidates into either the pass group or the fail group so you can find the best candidates faster.

Full customization

We have pre-built tests and questions, but you can customize them however you like. Change the pass/fail scores, time requirements, and more.

Cheating protection

Use tests that solve real-world problems, with no answers that can be easily found online. Because we test performance and skills (not information), we allow the use of online resources, just like in real life. Copy/paste prevention and online proctoring via webcam prevent cheating.

Candidate reporting

Get an overview into the percentage of passes and fails. Then dive deeper into the results of your top candidates to select who goes onto the next phase of hiring.
