The tests are conducted “in application” so the candidates have to demonstrate their skills in practically working with the office applications. To cover the standard areas, predefined tests are offered for the most popular applications. Additionally individual tests can be configured easily by selecting the number of questions, test time and level of difficulty for each application. This flexibility enables clients to use individually designed tests fitting the needs of selected target groups, departments or jobroles.

Tests are available for the following applications and for keyboard typing (measuring typing speed and error rate).
