Microsoft Excel Test
What is a fully simulated Microsoft Excel test?
The assessment is designed to test an individual’s ability to perform tasks within a simulated Microsoft Excel environment.
Unlike most Excel Tests, this test does not consist of multiple choice questions. Instead the simulated test platform is designed to closely mimic the look, feel and functionality of Excel.
The functionality is fair to candidates in that it allows the tasks to be completed in a familiar way using menus, buttons, left clicks, right clicks and keyboard shortcuts in a way that they are most accustomed.
Candidates are presented with 15 questions to complete. Each question is assigned an allocated time to complete; typically 60-80 seconds, depending on the complexity of the question presented
Why should I use a Microsoft Excel test?
Most employees will use Microsoft Excel for one use or another at some point in their job.
Our Excel test covers everything from Excel basics to advanced Excel skills depending on the level chosen allowing you to evaluate candidates knowledge.
Candidate’s responses are automatically marked and a point is rewarded for each correctly answered question. Skipped questions or those that are not taken will result in no point being awarded.
Example Test Question
Question at intermediate level:
Add default protection in the current worksheet.
