What can I expect from a TestGorilla assessment?

Assessments are put together by companies using TestGorilla. Each assessment consists of up to 5 tests and up to 10 custom questions.

TestGorilla allows companies to develop personalized assessments to test job candidates.

Assessments consist of validated tests from our test library, as well as custom questions that companies create themselves.

Each assessment can have up to 5 tests. You can find the different tests we offer—such as coding tests, personality tests, negotiation tests, and more—in our test library. Each test is crafted by an expert in that particular field.

Check out our test library to get a better look at our tests.

Most tests have a time limit of 10 minutes, though some coding tests are 30 minutes. Typically, an assessment can take anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour to complete.

The custom questions added by each company are unique. There are four different types: multiple-choice, essay, video (where you'll be asked to record a video response), or file upload (such as a resume or portfolio). The time limits for these questions can vary.

We wrote this article to explain how the time limits work and how long an assessment can take.

Things to keep in mind

Since companies create their own assessments using TestGorilla, we cannot tell you the specific details of any assessment you're invited to. If you want to know more about a specific assessment, we advise you to contact the company you're applying for.
