Reading Comprehension or verbal comprehension tests are often used in job assessments for operational level and support roles or for positions in which a large portion of the work involves reading and deciphering texts. No matter what level of language the test is, the format is always the same: a passage followed by questions on the contents of the text. These written sections can be long, consisting of a few paragraphs, or short, comprised of only a few sentences. This test is a measurement of your ability to understand written information, analyse it, and interpret what you have read to answer questions. Often, you will be asked about specific vocabulary used in your field of work to make sure you are familiar with specific terms and concepts.
