About the Google Docs test

Online document editors are a fundamental part of everyday life in business. They are a flexible tool that can be used to write reports, produce proposals, take meeting notes, track projects, or produce documents to be embedded on a website or specifically for printing. Collaboration is also possible with individual specialists in fields such as copywriting, formatting, and design, all working on their own aspects of the document at the same time.

The Google Docs test for document creators assesses candidates’ knowledge around the core functionality of Google Docs. Through questions that focus on design elements and tools from the software, it evaluates candidates’ skills to format and edit text and incorporate elements such as tables, headers and footers, watermarks, and external items such as images and charts.

Candidates who perform well on this test have a strong grasp of Google Docs and practical experience using the software. They know how to create and format documents for specific purposes and how to prepare them for publishing to the web and printing. The test ensures that these candidates have all the technical skills needed to represent your company’s vision and move it forward.

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.
