Skills Tests Intray Exercises

In-tray exercises are tests that are designed to assess a candidate’s ability to prioritise and respond to tasks which they would be expected to navigate in the workplace.

In-tray exercises

In-tray exercises and e-tray exercises are provided to measure different abilities and skill sets in applicants across different levels.

Our In-tray Tests simulate an everyday working environment rather than an assessment centre. They are designed to be realistic, testing an individual’s ability to recognise priority tasks and organise their workload accordingly.

In-tray Exercises

What are in-tray skill tests?

Two different types of in-tray exercises are available, those built specifically for clerical roles and tests more appropriate for management. Within these groupings, two test levels can be taken – either core or professional.

Candidates are asked to recognise which of the in-tray exercises they are presented with on screen are the priority and use a free text response to provide reasoning as to why they have delegated the exercises in the way they have.

Why should I use In-tray skill Ttests?

Skills Arena provides a reliable assessment centre to ensure your company recruits only the best suited applicants.
