Basic Skills Test

There is really nothing basic about the Basic Skills Tests (BSTs). The BSTs are a series of assessments that measure fundamental skills, such as reasoning, numerical ability, perceptual ability, and verbal ability. For customer service, administrative, and clerical job tasks, the BSTs get to the root of determining if an applicant or employee is prepared to handle the tasks associated with the target job. Tests can be used for pre-employment, training and development, and job placement decisions.
