Again, I doubt this is a dev guy problem, because I am a dev guy and I am guessing it is more of a decision delay problem.

The question is, "Have you taken", not, "Did you take"?
There's a difference between these two kinds of past tense.

 

Not really. At least, not in this context. "have you taken this test?" means "Did you ever take this test?" which is identical in content (if not form) to "Did you take this test?"

Why is there still a canned question for clients about what Upwork tests you have taken that are relevant to this project if Upwork tests no longer exist?


If you've taken the relevant test say yes and link to the screenshot of the test results you took before they were all killed off.

 

The question asks if you took it. If you did, say yes. If you didn't, you didn't.

The question is not "Did you take the test and is it still showing on your profile?"

That's way better than my answer.  I didn't take any of the tests, the tests are dumb Smiley Tongue


I used to say "I have taken and done well on the X and Y tests, but honestly, these tests are at such a rudimentary level that they are in no way reflective of the skills needed to successfully complete your project and I would recommend against using them as a qualifier."

Hi All,

 

I just wanted to circle back and confirm that the question about tests has been removed from the job posting form. You shouldn't see any new job postings with that question anymore.

Thanks again for the conversation!

Yay.

Apparently you just have to ask nicely.

 

There was a moment though where I thought all canned questions were going...that would have been nice.  I always want to respond back with "what are you going to ask next, my favorite color?"
