About the test

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.

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.
