If you are recruiting for secretarial staff or executive assistants then our shorthand and spelling assessments are perfect pre-screening tools. As with all tests in FastPath these skills tests are all online. 

Shorthand Typing Tests 

Shorthand may not be as popular as it once was but it's still used in secretarial roles everyday. Our assessments are based on words per minute (wpm). The assessment consists of dictation, transcription and typing, and specifically measures speed, accuracy and shorthand skills. Candidates are allowed 30 minutes to transcribe the audio heard into shorthand before re-typing the text on screen. The results of this exercise will give an indication of quality and productivity. The dictation speed will be set at specified wpm and contains a choice of legal, medical and general terminology where appropriate. 


Our standard shorthand tests start from 50 wpm increasing up to 120 wpm.

Plus you can choose medical shorthand tests or legal shorthand tests starting from 80 wpm up to 100 wpm.



We believe that spelling tests shouldn't just be restricted to your school days. If you receive an email, letter or CV full of spelling errors what do you think? Would you immediately judge the sender or delete the CV? If you are recruiting for a role that involves customer communication then spelling tests are a great checker, perhaps for your marketing, administration or secretarial roles? 

Choose from Basic, Intermediate or Advanced Spelling.

Or why not use our specific spelling tests containing Legal, Medical or Geographical words?

You have the choice of spelling tests using audio or on-screen spelling assessments. The on-screen tests provide a selection of words and the candidate must choose the correctly spelt one.
