This test features two sets of data where the candidate will determine which set fits with the example, depending on the instructions.


Attention to Detail Tests measure a person’s ability and self-discipline to deal with details accurately.

The Attention to Detail Test measures a candidate’s ability to match sets of data with another set, checking for nuances, slight variations, or discrepancies among the data sets.

Factors in Grading
the Attention to Detail Skill Tests

There are three main factors that determine the overall score on the Detail Skills Test. These are: how a person answered the questions, the time it took to answer the questions, and how well he or she followed the instructions provided.

Answering the Questions

The first factor is how well a person answered the questions. The object of the questions on the Attention to Detail Test is to determine whether or not a person can accurately identify the matching answer based on a series of letters and/or numbers given to them. The questions are divided into two sections: Simple Details and Complex Details. The Simple Detail questions are usually made of less than 5 letters and numbers. The Complex Detail questions are usually made of 5 or more letters and numbers, usually in combinations (i.e. codes that require both letters and numbers and addresses).a score of 0 for Complex Details is deemed to be a very poor score and weighted more heavily.

Since the Simple Detail questions are made of more simplistic and shorter combinations of numbers and letters, these questions are weighed less heavily than the Complex Detail questions. As a result, if a person gets a score below 100 for Complex Details then it is weighed against them more heavily than a score of 100 for Simple Details is weighted for them. For example, if a person got a score of 0 for Complex Details and 60 for Simple Details, the person may get an overall score of 0 since a score of 0 for Complex Details is deemed to be a very poor score and weighted more heavily.


The second factor is the amount of time it took a person to answer the questions. The average time that it takes for a person to complete the Detail Skills Test is between 15 to 20 minutes. If a person takes less than 15 minutes to complete the test then the overall score may increase if errors are minimal. However, if a person takes more than 20 minutes to complete the test then the overall score may decrease.

Before beginning the Detail Skills Test, the person should be informed that the time it takes for them to complete is not as important as accuracy. For example, a person may take the test in less than 15 minutes, but still receive a poor result since he or she did not take the time to read the instructions or to check his or her work. Likewise, a person may take more than 30 minutes, but still receive a good result since he or she took the time to make sure that the answers are correct.

Following Instructions

The third factor is whether or not a person followed the instructions necessary to answer the questions accurately. Since instructions are a form of detail, if the results indicate that a person did not follow an instruction, then it may mean that the person may have difficulty with details. The consequence of a person not following the instructions on the Detail Skills Test is that the overall score will decrease by 18%.
