About the test

The MS Word online test assesses knowledge of ordering, formatting, styling, and presenting information within a document. This test also requires downloading template files, performing required tasks within MS Word, and uploading the file for automatic evaluation.

Proficiency with everyday office tasks tested include:

  • Ordering information logically with multi-level lists.
  • Formatting documents to present information professionally.
  • Using header, footer, and table of content tools to aid navigation.

Roles such as Administrative Assistant, Content Writer, and Secretary need to produce well-organized, professional documents for efficient business communication.

Working as a teacher at a university, you have compiled a write-up on learning objectives and want to forward it to upper management. To organize the document better, you want to add a table of contents and page numbers to the document.

Download the ‘RightQuestions-Template.docx’ file and implement the following:

  • Add a table of contents to the beginning of the document.
  • Add a page break just after the table of contents so that the rest of the text starts from the next page.
  • Add page numbers to the document so that all pages after the table of contents display a page number at the bottom of each page.

When you have completed your work, save it in .docx format, then upload that file for evaluation.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
