Purnima: I think that at the very least, a written test will look for the
- spelling accuracy
- clarity of instructions/procedures
- speed of completion
- "international-ness" of language use (not using regional or
dialect to express ideas, concepts, etc.)
This has been my experience with TW positions here in the US.
There are also other things that you could expect to be tested, both
indirectly and directly,
related to what the job will involve.
