Chillibreeze Technical Writing Assessment: Get your Technical Writing Skills Evaluated
Are you a sciences/humanities/commerce grad with good writing skills who’s been eyeing the “techie” market but are unsure if you have what it takes? Or, are you a qualified techie who wants to evaluate your writing skills before you take the plunge and become a tech writer?
Technical writing is more accessible a field than you might imagine. If fears of complicated jargon rich manuals are what come to mind when someone says Technical Writing, think again. Often, the work just involves a simple, methodical thought process and an ability to communicate well.
So why not explore a new career avenue? No long winded technical writing courses to take before you get to the crux of it all - the assessment of your skills. Just this ‘convenient to take’ test that has been designed by writers with years of experience in the industry. All you’ll need is your computer and you’re set to go.
You need not have prior technical writing training or expertise to take this assessment. In fact, we’d encourage anyone with a flair for writing and research to give this a go. Who knows, it might just open up a new career option for you!
Why take the Technical Writing Assessment?
The key objectives of our Technical Writing Assessment
This assessment will give you a chance to test your ability in a variety of areas that you will encounter as a technical communicator/writer.
The test has questions covering a broad spectrum of scenarios and projects you are likely to encounter as a technical writer. You will be tested on your ability to communicate effectively with different audiences via the medium of the written word. A good technical writer has to be able to simplify for the layperson and be sufficiently knowledgeable for a more mature business audience. Through these questions, you will be able to gauge your ability to do all of the above and more.
High performers will additionally get a merit certificate based on the quality of their writing.
Confidentiality of test results
Don’t worry if you didn’t do too well. Your Technical Writing assessment results will remain confidential and will not be published. However, if you receive an ‘A’ grade, 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 writer 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 writing 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 assessment 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."
