How important are test scores to clients when hiring freelance writers?

I think that is the last thing a client is looking at, but it may be important in a situation like when you are new and dont have a job history or your history is short and say you claim you are a translator to French and have a test score below average in French. But if a freelancer is well established with top rated badge, years of working experience, dozens of jobs completed with great feedbacks a client will probably ignore your tests.

I personally don't pay attention to them and can't recall ever making a hiring decision based on test scores. However, a long list of below average scores would probably stand out and I might theoretically pay attention in that case.


I think Jenn M is right and the various Upwork algorithms probably pay more attention than clients do.
