What elements are included within our test?

Toggl Hire test is made of the following key elements;

1. Settings

  • Test settings
    Your skills test's settings where you can change the job title, time limit, threshold and manage your email notifications.
    If you have created a Smart Test, you can also edit here your test difficulty level, selected skills and number of auto-generated questions.

  • Test questions
    Under test questions you'll see the preview of your skills test questions. You can also edit your test questions here.
    If you have created a Smart Test, then you'll be able to edit only static questions.

  • Landing page
    The landing page with customisable info & media for your test, and where candidates can apply for your job's test.

  • Test result page
    Your test's result page that candidates will see after they have submitted their test. This page will show their score*, message from you along with the contact fields they need to fill in.

    In case you have set a certain threshold to your test then there are two different versions of feedback which can be displayed - one message for those that met or surpassed the test score threshold, and a different message for those that didn't quite meet the bar.

    *Test scores are calculated automatically for all single / multi-choice questions. Answers for free text and code input questions require manual review.
