About the Accounting terminology (US) test

Every profession has its own terminologies and jargon that help convey a large volume of information and other relevant details through a very small statement or even a single word.

The accounting profession also has a large number of unique terminologies. These terminologies are used to describe financial information and related processes. Financial information can incorporate lots of different things: the right to receive an amount from another person; the obligation to pay an amount to another person; how much you have earned or lost or expended during a certain period; or the total worth of a business entity or a particular thing. Accountants use terms and phrases to quickly communicate the meaning of financial information, and this hiring test focuses on these terms.

Candidates who perform well on the test are likely to possess a good understanding of key accounting terminologies used in the United States. The hiring test will ensure that candidates will be a good addition to the accounting team at your company and that candidates will immediately start performing their job efficiently and effectively.

FAQs

What is the difference between an assessment and a test?
An assessment is the total package of tests and custom questions that you put together to evaluate your candidates. Each individual test within an assessment is designed to test something specific, such as a job skill or language. An assessment can consist of up to 5 tests and 20 custom questions. You can have candidates respond to your custom questions in several ways, such as with a personalized video.
Can I add my own questions to an assessment?
Yes! Custom questions are great for testing candidates in your own unique way. We support the following question types: video, multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Besides adding your own custom questions, you can also create your own tests.
How do video questions work?
A video question is a specific type of custom question you can add to your assessment. Video questions let you create a question and have your candidates use their webcam to record a video response. This is an excellent way to see how a candidate would conduct themselves in a live interview, and is especially useful for sales and hospitality roles. Some good examples of things to ask for video questions would be "Why do you want to work for our company?" or "Try to sell me an item you have on your desk right now." You can learn more about video questions here.
Can you explain how the other custom question types work?
Besides video questions, you can also add the following types of custom questions: multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Multiple-choice lets your candidates choose from a list of answers that you provide, coding lets you create a coding problem for them to solve, file upload allows your candidates to upload a file that you request (such as a resume or portfolio), and essay allows an open-ended text response to your question. You can learn more about different custom question types here.
Can I customize an assessment with my company logo and color theme?
Yes! You can add your own logo and company color theme to your assessments. This is a great way to leave a positive and lasting brand impression on your candidates.
