Recommended for Administrative Assistants, Clerical Workers, Data Entry Clerks, Customer Service Representatives, Medical Billers, and Receptionists.


  • Basic computer literacy


Test Description

The Computer Literacy and Internet Knowledge Test (CLIK) is an assessment of basic computer skills. It measures a person’s proficiency with using Internet browsers and common desktop applications such as email, chat, and word processing programs. It is a 13-minute test consisting of three 2-3-minute task-oriented simulations, followed by ten multiple choice questions. Since it is designed as a test of the kind of basic computer literacy that is required in many work environments, it can be used for any position which requires basic computer skills, such as receptionists, customer service representatives, medical billers, data entry clerks, administrative assistants, and more.

Score Reports

Each individual is given a raw score and a proficiency score. The raw score indicates how many questions (out of 25) the individual answered correctly; there is no deduction for incorrect answers. The raw scores are further categorized into three possible proficiency rankings, as follows:

  • 0-16: Not Proficient
  • 17-21: Proficient
  • 22-25: Highly Proficient

The score reports also show each test item (simulation task or multiple choice question) and whether the test-taker answered it correctly.

Validity Information

Criterion Validity: The CLIK measures basic computer literacy, and as such has been shown to predict job readiness and in some cases overall job performance for a range of jobs for which basic computer skills are an essential job requirement. For example, for a sample of employees in clerical and administrative positions at a large employer, there was a strong correlation (.50) between CLIK scores and job performance, as measured by supervisory ratings.
