New QuickBooks Assessment Exams for bookkeepers, controllers, consultants

The Sleeter Group is pleased to announce the release of its QuickBooks Assessment Exams. The only tests of their type in the industry, The Sleeter Group’s QuickBooks Assessment Exams enable accounting professionals or employers to test prospective employees for the bookkeeping, controller, and consultant roles, for work in an accounting firm or a small- to medium-sized business (SMB).
 
"An unqualified bookkeeper or consultant can wreak havoc on a QuickBooks file in no time. SMB owners and their external accountants need a reliable way to gauge the skill level of potential hires before their QuickBooks files are touched," said Doug Sleeter, founder and president of The Sleeter Group. "These QuickBooks Assessments take the guesswork out of determining if a prospective new hire truly has the skills that a business needs, or if the prospective hire is just using basic bookkeeping jargon to exaggerate their resume."
 
Each exam includes 60 questions. Exams are given online and can be administered directly by the employer or accountant from any location. The employer or accountant sees the score, the pass/fail status, and the time it took to complete the test.
 
Unlike a certification test, these QuickBooks Assessments from The Sleeter Group are controlled by the employer. The employer knows the conditions when giving the test and can compare scores between applicants.
 
According to Marilyn Sudbeck, a practicing CPA in Lakewood, Colorado, "Many times people make their own judgment regarding their skill level. Sometimes these are opinions, and are not based on fact. The Sleeter Group’s QuickBooks assessment exams are an excellent way for business owners to determine the qualifications of a potential employee or contract person. These tests, from an independent third party, assess the skills necessary for a competent bookkeeper, controller or hired consultant. They provide an impartial assessment."
 
The Assessments are available for a nominal fee of $29.95 per exam, with quantity discounts available. Members of the Sleeter Group Consultants Network may use up to 50 instances of these assessments in a given membership year free (almost a $1,000 value), as a benefit of membership. Assessments are purchased from the Sleeter Store.
