Clerical Test Battery

What does the Clerical Test Battery measure?

The Clerical Test Battery consists of four tests which assess a range of clerical aptitudes and skills:

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Numerical Ability
  • Clerical Checking
  • Spelling

Designed for general clerical and administrative roles, we are able to administer tests either individually to assess a specific aptitude or as an entire battery which will produce a candidate profile.


Taking only 27 minutes to administer, the CTB2 or CTB2i provides a short but comprehensive assessment across a wide range of core clerical abilities.

This assessment is appropriate for people who have achieved a basic level of education and is a particularly useful tool for assessing junior and clerical administrative staff.
