Project Management and Time Management Test
About the test
The Project Management and Time Management test assesses a candidate’s project management skills as well as their ability to organize and plan how to divide their own time between specific activities.
It’s an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates who are expected to manage team projects alongside ownership of their own workload. A good candidate for these roles will be able to demonstrate the ability to plan and execute both the work of a team and their own personal task lists.
This test requires candidates to answer multiple-choice questions about the principles and core subjects within the project management discipline and demonstrate their ability to prioritize and schedule work through both multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions.
Sample public questions
You are working as a social media manager for a company that has specific expectations of how you will perform your work.
Compare those expectations with how you actually spent your time last week.
|Other (Meetings, etc.)||4|
You need to schedule a critical meeting. You're available from 9:30am to 2:00pm.
Angela is available from 10:30am to 2:30pm.
Chris is available from 12pm to 4pm.
Everyone hates meeting during lunch but will if it's important.
When are all three of you available to start a one-hour meeting?
A project you are managing had a starting budget of 180,000 USD and an expected duration of 1 year and 3 months. The work and budget are spread equally over the duration.
You are currently 8 months into the project, the work is on schedule, and so far you have spent 90,000 USD.
What is the cost variance of the project?
You need to pause one of the projects you manage because of a company-wide budget cut. You decide to pause your internet project because it is the least valuable. The project has a 70% chance of a 150,000 USD profit, but a 30% chance of a 30,000 USD loss.
What is the project’s monetary value?
A team member calls you mid-flight to inform you about an idea that she had to change one part of the solution design that she is going to present at tomorrow’s customer meeting. She briefly explains her idea to you, but the mobile connection is poor and the call is disturbed with noise and short interruptions. How do you respond?
You have partially planned your tasks for tomorrow, as shown in the table below.
|Task||Duration of Task||# of Tasks Planned|
|Response to client.||8 minutes|
|Identify expansion opportunity.||2 hours 50 minutes||2|
|Develop sales presentation.||1 hour 15 minutes||1|
Given 8 hours of work and the tasks you already have planned, how many responses to clients can you plan for tomorrow?
(Round your answer to the nearest integer.)

What others say
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.
