Research Skills Assessment: Get Your Online Secondary Research Skills Evaluated
Interested in online research and writing as a career? Our online secondary research skills test will evaluate your skill at researching topics on the internet and presenting them in a coherent fashion.
A lot of freelance work today involves secondary research and collation of information. Yes, it does seem simple to “google up” information and put it all together. However, there is more to it than simply using search engines. Chances are everyone can find information at the click of a button – set yourself apart by looking up information relevant to your project on hand!
Take our test to enhance your skills at looking up pertinent, hard-to-find information and the ability to present them well. Get your skills validated – see if you have it in you to string together fragmented information into a cohesive whole.
Why take the Research Skills test?
The key objectives of our Research Skills test
Online research basically involves searching the internet for information, which is then put together in a document that is rich in content, readability and flow. The Chillibreeze research skills test will test various aspects of online research including the ability to look for relevant information; quality of links looked up, presentation of data collected and ability to come up with hard-to-find information. Once you submit your finished document, our team will provide detailed feedback on your secondary research skills and offer valuable suggestions for improvement.
High performers will additionally get a merit certificate based on the quality of their research and writing.
Confidentiality of your Research Skills test results
Don’t worry if you didn’t do too well. Your test results will remain confidential and will not be published. However, if your test is rated 8 or higher on a scale of 10, we would be glad to publish your profile on our list of recommended writers, proofreaders and editors.
Your test results vs. letters of reference
Letters of reference can be fabricated, recommenders can be influenced but test results from a reputed content company will always be taken seriously. We would be happy to send your results directly to your clients if you would like us to. Clients often post projects on multiple websites and are often not sure which editor to pick. You could offer to send them your test results via Chillibreeze. Your test results will not only establish your credentials with your customers, but also increase your chances of getting more freelance editing work. You could also request Chillibreeze to send your test results to a potential employer. Email us at testing at chillibreeze dot com and we will make sure your test results reach your clients in 24 hours.

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."
