Proofreading Skill Test
What is a Proofreading Skill Test?
At Fundamental level candidates are required to highlight only the spelling and grammatical errors. At Core and Professional levels candidates are also required to type corrections for the errors identified.
Candidates are presented with 1 question to complete within 15 minutes. Responses are automatically marked. A point is awarded for each correct highlight and an additional point is available for corrections in the Core and Professional levels.
In all levels incorrect selections will result in a minus point being subtracted from the total score and missed errors will result in no point being awarded.
