Purpose: The Clerical Speed and Accuracy Test is one of our many online pre-employment aptitude tests. Also known as the “Perceptual Speed & Accuracy Test”, it uses a classic approach to measuring a candidate’s ability to read quickly, compare sets of information, and make simple decisions. The test can be used with good results where the position requires a lot of paperwork, and where both processing speed and minimizing errors are important. We recommend using this test for positions such as secretary, administrative assistant, inventory control personnel, shipping & receiving clerk, accounting personnel, and finance clerk.
