About the content writing test
The content writer test is designed to balance comprehensiveness with the test completion rate. This test will assess: factual correctness, how well the writer covers the topic, grammar and fluff (which should be non-existent), as well as reading comprehension skills and attention to detail. Employers using Workello will have access to content writing test samples, including interview questions for the content writer.
