Fast and accurate keyboarding skills are a requirement for most jobs today. Multiple typos in a report or incorrectly keyed orders are not acceptable to clients or co-workers. Do you have a plan to measure this basic skill in job applicants?

EmployTest offers two versions of keyboarding tests, where the user must enter information quickly and accurately in a designated time period, depending on the test:

  • Typing test: the user types paragraph text in a report format. Score given in Words Per Minute (WPM).
  • Data Entry test (alpha): the user types in simulated contact information to simulate an order or customer service scenario. Score given in keystrokes per hour.
  • Data Entry test (numeric): the user types in rows of numbers to simulate an accounting, inventory coding or data entry role. Score given in keystrokes per hour.
