Our basic math and English test for employment consists of 40 multiple-choice questions in four categories: math, spelling, vocabulary, and grammar. In addition to an overall score, each category is scored separately so hiring managers can assess knowledge in each area. Questions range in difficulty from a fourth-grade level to a college level. The majority of questions on this test are at the middle school or high school level. As noted above, you can change or add questions on any topic through our Custom Test Builder to make sure the test is tailored to the job you’re hiring for.
Topics covered in our basic skills test:
Addition, subtraction, multiplication & division
Word definitions & applications
