Re: Technical Writing Tests
This in itself could be a very useful indicator of how adept a candidate is with technology. How do they approach trying to get something useful out of an unfamiliar tool? Are they able to figure out enough of the technology to at least make a stab at using it? These days, there are very few applications that are so un-intuitive and user-unfriendly that a competent technical writer cannot make sense of them.
If a techwriter needs training on something before being able to work with it, I'd be very loath to hire that person.
