WordPress Administrator Test

WordPress administrator tests are designed to assess a candidate's knowledge and understanding of using the popular content management system WordPress.


What is a WordPress administrator test?

A WordPress administrator test is a formal assessment of a candidate's knowledge of the CMS platform WordPress, and their ability to use its features and tools to manage website content and design.

The multiple-choice test helps to identify candidates with an intermediate level of knowledge using WordPress. Topics include setting up a website, installing themes, creating and managing content, installing plugins, navigating the user interface and following general best practices for websites.

A strong performance on the WordPress administrator test indicates a candidate has the necessary skills to make the best use of the content management system.

Why should you use a WordPress administrator test for recruiting?

Candidates will often state on their CV or online application that they are proficient in WordPress but that can be difficult to measure without practical evidence. A candidate may claim to have experience, but unless you see their skills in action, there's no way to be certain.

You may also find candidates who have a seemingly similar level of experience which can make shortlisting them tricky and leave you open to hiring bias.

Incorporating a WordPress test as part of your hiring process solves this problem for you. By comparing test scores, you can shortlist the best applicants using data-driven, bias-free decision-making.

A WordPress software test might be needed for a range of roles including:

How does our test assess WordPress skills?

In Neuroworx's WordPress administrator test, candidates will need to answer a range of questions targeting an intermediate level of knowledge using the content management platform. This includes knowing how to navigate WordPress, creating and posting content, following best practices and using advanced features like plugins and APIs.

The test is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands how to use WordPress based on a final test score, which can then be compared to the scores of other applicants.

The multiple-choice questions consist of one correct answer and two to four distractors. The distractors are mostly generic mistakes or misconceptions, which makes the test challenging and helps measure a candidate's proficiency more accurately.

During the development process, the test was rigorously analysed to maximise reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. It was created and tested by experienced marketers and psychometric experts, and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying WordPress experience just like you might find in a talent pool.

Each test is reviewed by a panel of individuals representing diverse backgrounds to check for any sensitivity, fairness, face validity and accessibility issues. This ensures each candidate has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of WordPress proficiency.

Our software tests are monitored to ensure they are up-to-date and optimised for performance.
