MOST, the Modern Occupational Skills Test series is now in a second, updated edition. The MOST tests are relevant to a wide range of office, clerical and technical jobs and tackle work skills which are relevant to real jobs - and manifestly so. All the tests have a believable work context, making them immediately more acceptable to applicants who are put off by tests that look as if their real home is an a 1950s classroom. Comparative validity studies have shown marked superiority of the MOST series over competing products.


Parts of MOST, including notably Decision Making and a combined Spelling, Grammar and Usage test, are now available online. Contact PRD with your requirements.
