Checking tests are designed to evaluate speed and accuracy skills. They are often seen in the selection process of clerical and administrative positions, and are quite straightforward. They are exhaustive and demand high level of concentration. This is because they require discriminating and comparing multiple sets of data that contain a lot of numerical and letter-based information, most of which has no significant meaning in real life.


CEB SHL Clerical Checking Tests

CEB's SHL is currently one of the largest assessment companies in the world of pre-employment assessment. Employers who are using CEB's SHL services and are looking for candidates for administrative, secretarial, and clerical jobs, usually use the CEB SHL Personnel Test Battery (PTB). The PTB includes 6 different types of clerical checking tests:

  • Clerical Checking
  • Classification
  • Basic Checking
  • Audio Checking
  • Text Checking
  • Computer Checking

It is important to note that most candidates only need to take some of these tests and not necessarily all six of them. Each candidate is required to sit the tests which are most relevant to the nature of the job for which he is applying. Beside clerical checking tests, the PTB also includes numerical and verbal reasoning tests.

Learn more about the PTB and prepare for it with JobTestPrep's CEB SHL-Style PTB practice pack.
