What do Error Checking Tests assess?
This test is designed to measure a candidate’s attention to detail and ability to spot errors in different data sets. It demands a high level of concentration due to the fact that candidates are required to compare two different sets of data that both contain a lot of numerical and letter-based information. The test is particularly useful in jobs that require accuracy and have a degree of repetition or when high levels of concentration are required to be sustained.
Typical roles that would use our Error Checking test:
- - Operational roles e.g. call centre staff, ramp/baggage handlers, train drivers etc
- - Administrative roles e.g. secretaries, invoice processing staff etc
- - Customer facing roles e.g. sales staff, customer support staff etc
Overview of the test
The test consists of a total of 50 questions that must be completed in 10 minutes. There are 10 unique question sets and each comprises of five individual questions. The task is to check whether information in the ‘pick manifest’ (at the bottom) is correctly presented in the ‘consignment details’ (at the top). For columns marked with an asterisk (*) the candidate also has to check whether the ‘key’ has been applied correctly. Different question sets follow different formats and have different keys to interpret. There can be more than one error in an item and some may have no errors at all. Candidates must select all options that apply.
