Purpose: Our popular Clerical Work Sample Test is a pre-employment typing test that requires the candidate to search for specific information from a page of complex set of data, then type in the information in an accurate manner onto a template on the computer. This test should be used to evaluate if candidates are capable of quickly searching for information, then remembering it long enough to type it in a new location. We recommend using this test for positions such as bookkeeper, administrative assistant, inventory control personnel, shipping & receiving clerk, accounting personnel and finance clerk.
