Time Management Test
About the test
The Time Management test assesses candidates' ability to prioritize and schedule their work to achieve efficient, effective, and productive outcomes.
It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening of candidates applying for a variety of office-based roles that require juggling of tasks and competing time frames. A good candidate will be able to demonstrate the ability to plan and exercise conscious control of time spent on different activities.
This test requires candidates to demonstrate the ability to prioritize task lists, work around obstructions, schedule solo and group work, and estimate timelines through a series of multiple-choice and fill-in-the-blank questions.

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.
