*Terms, conditions, quality standards and usage limits apply

How long will it take candidates to complete a test?

While the length of a test can vary, most test modules take an average of 10 minutes or less. For example, if you’ve opted to combine two 10-minute test modules, your test could take candidates a total of 20 minutes to complete.

How long should a test be?

From our experience, candidate abandonment increases after the 30-minute mark. We offer a warning message when combining test modules that will exceed 30 minutes.

Do candidates see their test scores?

Candidates will not see their score when taking a test on behalf of an employer. Scores can only be seen by the employer that created and sent the test.

How do you prevent candidates from cheating?

While we can’t prevent candidates from having someone else take tests for them, we do monitor for copies online of our questions and answers. As a security precaution, we do not allow anyone (including employers) to see answers to any of our pre-built tests.

Are skills tests mobile friendly?

Most tests can be completed from mobile devices. Those that require the use of a laptop or desktop computer – such as Typing – include notices to switch devices. We do our best to put warnings in front of these tests to give candidates the opportunity to switch devices.
