Error Checking Test

What is an error checking test?

Error or data checking tests present you with tables of information which must be checked against each other. These tests are used to measure how quickly and accurately a candidate can detect errors in data.

How do error checking tests work?

Typically, an error checking test will display two tables, columns or rows of data and ask you to check for any inconsistencies. Tests are timed, and candidates are awarded marks for accuracy and speed.
