How the Microsoft IQ Tests Work

These tests are completely anonymous - at no time will you have to log on to a site or submit any personal details.

You will be given between 10 and 20 multiple choice questions to answer, depending on the test you choose. Simply answer the questions as best you can in whatever order you like - there is no time limit, but the test shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.

When you 've finished

When you have finished your test, you can:

  • see your score;
  • see how well you did relative to others taking the test; and
  • see which training course(s) would be most appropriate for you. 

A typical report at the end of your test might look like this:
