When I go to my Profile, then click View my profile as others see it, I expect it to display my profile as clients see it, not other freelancers, so if Upwork is currently hiding all test scores from clients, then that View my profile as others see it link should reflect this

Darn, this is frustrating. I cannot quote Petra's remarks about tests being useless because all the answers are online. Lithium is messing up the quote, so here's my retort by itself.

---------------------------------------------

That might be so, but by the same reasoning, overviews and portfolios would be useless because many overviews and portfolios are plagiarized. Let's not penalize honest test takers because there are cheaters.

Edited - it seems that indeed everyone is treated equally in whether test results are visible or not when viewed from a client account (!)

Hi, why are you removing the tests from the profiles? I just started with Upwork and started taking some tests, would like to show them, but I see you will remove them tomorrow. Its not okay to remove them , hope you change this decision..

Hi Gent.

 

Since we want you to be able to share your talents with potential clients we now give freelancers the opportunity to better showcase their portfolio and create multiple specialized profiles to market their individual skills. Testing has shown these are much more helpful to clients than skills tests, which didn’t fully show a freelancer’s talents.
