What is a Proofreading Test?
Our Proofreading Test is designed to test an individual’s ability to recognise spelling and grammatical errors in a sample piece of text.
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 one 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.
Why should I use a Proofreading Test?
