Wise Owl's skills assessment tests have been available to do online since December 2010. Since then over three-quarters of a million people have completed a test. This help page explains what the tests are, who should do them, how to take a test and how to view your results.
People who have found our tests useful include:
If you're considering a candidate for a job, you can use our tests to determine whether someone really knows about a software application or is just bluffing!
Use our tests to find out whether you're as proficient as you think you are in any particular program.
Want something to do while you eat your sandwiches? Take a test to see how you rate compared to the thousands of other people who have gone before you (and then share the results with your colleagues, to challenge them to see if they can do better).
If you're trying to learn to use a particular software program, you can use our tests to see how much you know, and how far you still have to go ...
So the answer to the question of who should take our tests is ... you!
Nothing. The tests are completely free, and you don't even have to log in or create an account to see your results.
So after you've invested the time in taking a test, there won't be one of those irritating pop-ups insisting that you sign up for an account before you can see your results, and you'll see how well you did on screen immediately (you won't need to enter your email address).
Each of the tests on our website currently takes a maximum of 20 minutes. In practice, a test will probably take much less time than this.
While you do a test, a progress meter will show how you're doing:
Lots of time left yet ...
When you finish the test you can type in your name (this will appear at the top of your test report):
You can use any name you like!
The website should show your results in a couple of seconds, so you'll still have time to eat your yoghurt before you get back to work!
If a test that you're doing times out, all of the questions that you haven't had time to answer will be marked as I DON'T KNOW: you'll still be able to see your score after this.
Here are some typical results from a test:
The start of the results analysis for your test.
The test shows how well you did relative to others who have taken the same test, and which were your areas of strength and weakness. When you've finished a test, you can share it with friends or colleagues, save it against your Wise Owl account or review the answers you gave:
The options for sharing and saving a test.
If you want to save your results (perhaps so that you can review them at a future date), you'll need to create an account on our website. This is also free, and only takes a minute or so.
