Testing Microsoft Office Skills

By justin ·
We are in the process of hiring new office staff. These members of our organization usually do a significant amount of computing expecially with Excel and Word applications. I was wondering if anyone out there has any tests that could be administered to potential canidates (actual hands on tests if available). I would appreciate any help that you could offer. Thanks in advance for your help.

Testing Microsoft Office Skills

Well - Assuming your office has access to the internet, you could have your potential staffers take the tests at www.brainbench.com. (You might need to check out which one's you want them to take first. And I believe it's still free.) The report that brainbench gives should offer you at least a relative idea of the test takers skill set. I think A good idea would be taking the tests yourself and seeing how you do and then that would give you a method of gauging thier skill set relative to yours. And you should be able to go from there. Otherwise you'll probably need to consider looking at some industry certification testing center like VUE.

- Good Luck!

Microsoft has their own set of user specialist exams. They can take a proficient exam in one or take a series of exams to become Master certified. Check out the site www.mous.net.

Both answer 1 and answer to are great answers, but I would to add something with respect to the Microsoft MOUS exam site www.mous.net

On the home page (bottom left hand corner last time I checked) is a link to a web site where your company could purchase trial MOUS exams to test applicants.

This would cost your applicant the exam fee unless they pasted the trial exam and wanted to gain the qualification.

Hope this helps

www.brainbench.com is a good site to look at. I had personally took the Word exam. I thought I would be able to get a good score based on years of usuage but that's not the case. The exam (which is free) is quite hard and it should test your applicant. Hope this answer your question.
