About the test

The Office Manager test assesses the ability to monitor, review, and be responsible for systems related to the overall administration of a business, including purchasing, facility management, and record keeping.

The assessment includes solving work-sample tasks, such as:

  • Creating, managing, and evaluating budgets.
  • Prioritizing, scheduling, and supervising the work of self and others.
  • Communicating appropriately and effectively.

A good office manager or chief administrative officer needs strong business math, time management, attention to detail, and communication skills to responsibly manage the overall administration of a business.
