What writers are saying about our assessments:
"I took the Travel Writer’s Assessment Test with great trepidation. I was, after all, taking a test after twenty years! But when I received my results (!), I was more than happy that I took the test. It brought out those little (and not so little!) gremlins in my writing, which had totally escaped my notice and I do believe that working on them will add that extra edge to my output. The feedback was most pertinent and valuable and what’s more, it was delivered in the most pleasant way!" --- Bhagyalakshmi Krishnamurthy - writing for a decade and a half and still learning!
"The editing test conducted by Chillibreeze takes into consideration many aspects of editing and many types of editing. I enjoyed taking the test. It has been so designed that at whatever stage one is in (in one’s career graph), one can upgrade oneself. The assessment is thorough and transparent.
More than anything else, the test – the concept, conduct and assessment – has elevated writers and editors from the status of “pocket money earners” to serious professionals, especially Indian writers and editors." --- Kanaka Cadambi, Freelance Editor with 25 years of experience
"The editing test was quite comprehensive. It caught me by surprise because I wasn't prepared to be assessed on so many aspects of editing. Even though I had been entrusted with quite a few editing assignments in the past, and received very good reviews on them, the test was an eye-opener. The results of the test have made me think, rethink and rework the way I approach editing jobs now. I am glad I took the test because now my clients will receive the full benefit of my brand new approach to my editing jobs." --- Sharon Colaco D’Souza, freelance writer and editor, home interiors blogger
"The editing test developed by Chillibreeze is focused and comprehensive. It quantifies all aspects of editing such as spelling, punctuation and grammar; syntax, vocabulary, expression and readability; proof-reading and formatting. Overall, it measures the extent to which the final output is ready to go to press.
The test can be applied to advanced levels of editing work, required in producing high-value and prestigious publications." --- Shubha Khandekar, editor, writer and translator with 25 years of work experience
“The Chillibreeze Editing Assessment which I worked on presented a wide variety of editorial challenges. The level of difficulty ranged from moderate to tough. After several years of working as an editor, one tends to become a little complacent about one’s abilities. The assessment helped me to understand and plug loopholes in my editing skills.” --- Poornima Narayanan
"The test is an effective benchmark of my editing skills and would be a good reference for a potential client or employer. It is a challenging and interesting assignment, and the feedback is useful as it focuses on specific parameters (grammar/spelling/readability/formatting and so on), rather than a general overview. Getting an unbiased assessment from a reliable source would definitely make it easier for a client to ascertain the worth of my work."
