English Literacy Assessments

Have your candidates and employees take a literacy assessment online.

The English literacy assessment is designed to assess a candidate or employee’s ability to read and write coherently. Results gleaned from the test will provide employers with a well-rounded view of employees’ English skills, helping organisations to ensure that all written communication is up to the required standard.

Literacy Assessments Available

We provide a wide range of web-based English skills tests that provide an effective assessment of your employees’ and candidates’ literacy. These assessments are not specific to a particular job role or profession, meaning that organisations from all industries will benefit from discovering candidates’ level of literacy.

Each assessment contains different questions that focus on a different area of literacy – this way, you can identify the strengths of your candidates and form a more rounded view of their learning. Our aptitude tests help you to identify your candidates’ key skills by asking the right questions. By having your candidates take a literacy assessment online, you are guaranteed to save your business time in the long run, as you will effectively shorten the recruitment process.

Each assessment will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and offers three levels of difficulty: Fundamental, Core and Professional.
