Clerical Testing

For clerical administrative support staff positions, clerical testing must be completed as part of our clerical job description requirements.  It is part of the application process for clerical positions, and must be completed prior to being considered for an interview.  These tests are computerized, and each test has a specific amount of time for completion.  The test scores are valid for two years so the tests cannot be taken again during that time frame. However, the Keyboarding test is the only test that can be taken again during the two year time frame.  There are seven tests to complete during the session, and it takes approximately 2 ½ hours to complete the tests:

• Basic Excel 2007
• Basic Word 2007
• Keyboarding
• Alpha filing
• Numeric filing
• Proofreading
• Bank Reconciliation
