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.

Review from G2

VP of engineering, mid-market (51-1000 FTE)

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.

The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.

For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.

I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.

For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
