Pre-Employment Skills Assessment Testing Procedures

As part of the initial screening process for certain clerical positions, applicants are requested to attend a skills assessment test. Testing requirement will be notated on the job bulletin. Participation in this test is highly recommended but not required. However, failure to participate in this testing could eliminate a candidate from further consideration for the position for which they have applied.

Applicants must complete the test during the application period only.  No testing will be allowed outside of an application period.

Testing must be completed at the Office of Human Resources located at:

Drake State Community and Technical College
Office of Human Resources

Building 500, Room 501

  1. Select Drake State
  2. Click “Drake HR Skills Assessment Test”

  4. Complete the “Requested Information” section and click register.

A picutre I.D. is required for entry into the testing room. An appointment is necessary.  Applicants should allow 45 minutes to complete the test.
