Looking for a test for copy editors, a test for writers, or a test for proofreaders to use as part of your employee evaluations?

These tests were originally developed for the web by EditFast in conjunction with Prentice Hall specifically to test future editors, writers and proofreaders as part of their employee evaluation and assessment.

The EditFast Test for Writers, Editors and Proofreaders

Before receiving any work from the EditFast administration or from clients who come to EditFast looking for an editor or a proofreader, all EditFast editors are given a rigorous test of their proofreading and editing abilities. The test scores are used as just one element in the assessment procedure. When deciding which editor will be chosen as a candidate for a specific editing or proofreading project assigned by the EditFast administration we look at all the information provided by that editor.

The editing, writing and proofreading tests have been modified from tests provided by Prentice Hall. Their hope was that we could use the tests as a screening tool to maintain and improve the already high quality of our editors.

There are three tests.

Test # 1    
20 minutes 45 questions Spelling, capitalization and punctuation
Test # 2    
15 minutes 31 questions Verbs, pronouns, adjectives or adverbs
Test # 3    
15 minutes 24 questions Sentence structure, sentence punctuation and clarity

Once you have started a test it must be completed during that browser session. However, you do not have to do all three tests at one time. You can come back at a later date and finish the tests you have not yet started.

You should be very careful when doing these tests. There are no second chances. Only in very rare circumstances will an editor be allowed to repeat the editing tests. Technical problems with the web site or an error on my part are the only reasons that might be valid. If you feel you have not been able to complete the test satisfactorily then you may contact me with an explanation of why you think you should be allowed to take the test again.
