TYPING TEST – SCORE-BANKING ONLY
FIRST DAY OF FILING:
December 1, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. (PT)
We invite you to apply to the Typing Test to help you prepare for a Los Angeles County job that requires typing skills. This posting is to allow candidates to take timed typing tests designed to measure speed and accuracy in typing. It will solely be used for record-keeping and transfer score purposes. If you have already completed a typing test with the Department of Human Resources and achieved a score of 40 words per minute, you do not need to apply. This typing test will not result in an eligible register.
- To compete for a specific job classification, a separate application is required.
- Candidates most recent typing test scores will supersede all previous scores unless a passing score of 40 words per minute has been rendered.
This examination will consist of a timed typing test designed to measure speed and accuracy in typing.
TYPING TESTS ARE NOT REVIEWABLE PER CIVIL SERVICE RULE 7.19.
Test scores cannot be given over the phone.
TRANSFER OF SCORES
This typing test will be used in the future for new examinations that require a typing skill. If your score meets the minimum words per minute for the examinations you apply for in the future, your scores will automatically be transferred.
The following applicants are NOT required to take the County typing test:
- Those candidates who currently hold or have held a typing position with the requisite words per minute in the service of the County of Los Angeles
- Those candidates who have taken and passed a Los Angeles County typing performance test at the required words per minute administered by a County Department. Passing scores on record with the Department of Human Resources will be transferred automatically.
