This online skills assessment helps you identify candidates who can pay close attention to visual cues and can handle visual material carefully and thoroughly. The attention to detail test is designed by a subject matter expert to screen candidates who can find differences in images and match identical images. It also assesses candidates’ ability to distinguish small details in an image and to identify patterns. You can send this online attention-to-detail (visual) assessment to your prospective job applicants and screen them objectively before inviting them to an interview.
