Assess your skills How do your Essential Skills measure up? Find out with free online assessments.

Questions are multiple-choice and are based on real-life situations and documents you would normally find at work. Work at your own pace. The reading and document use assessments usually take about 30 minutes each. The math assessment may take an hour. You can retake the assessments as often as you like.
