About the test

The MS Office test evaluates a candidate’s ability to work with documents and spreadsheets, including the knowledge of how to create, modify, format, and style information contained within a document, and also 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. Good candidates for most office jobs require competency with using word processing and spreadsheet software, such as MS Word and MS Excel. This MS Office test can be used to screen large groups of candidates to select only those with the required word processing and spreadsheet knowledge to bring in for an interview.

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