Assessment Tests Part Two

I just looked at my assessment scores at Indeed and they are crazy.

In proofreading I get a “Completed,” the lowest possible score. For their written communication test I get the ranking “Familiar,” the second worst score. For SEO I get an “Expert” ranking. These are completely reversed from what they should be.

Their proofreading test bears no relation to real world business writing. The written communication test was equally flawed, with no guide or style sheet to go by. I’ve also written here on the complexity of SEO, which demands a total website approach and not just crafting a single page.

Again, I stand on my published work before any assessment test. The fifteen or sixteen law firms my company has as clients certainly don’t mind my editing or revising. Where does that leave a prospective employer in judging my talents? Nowhere. None of these tests makes sense.
