About the test

The MS Word test evaluates a candidate’s ability to work with documents, including the knowledge of how to create, modify, format, and style information contained within a document.

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 software, such as MS Word, to create, edit, format, style, and customize page layouts in documents. This MS Word test can be used to screen large groups of candidates to select only those with the required word processing knowledge to bring in for an interview.

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

Word Page Layout

Working as a teacher at a university, you have compiled a write-up on learning objectives and want to forward it to upper management. To organize the document better, you want to add a table of contents and page numbers to the document.

Download the ‘RightQuestions-Template.docx’ file and implement the following:

  • Add a table of contents to the beginning of the document.
  • Add a page break just after the table of contents so that the rest of the text starts from the next page.
  • Add page numbers to the document so that all pages after the table of contents display a page number at the bottom of each page.

When you have completed your work, save it in .docx format, then upload that file for evaluation.

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.
