We’ve just launched the oDesk Readiness Test for providers. It is a brief tutorial, designed to educate new providers on oDesk policies and best practices. Providers who have recently billed hours on oDesk are by definition ready to work and will be granted the “oDesk Ready” designation without having to pass the oDesk Readiness Test.

The oDesk Readiness Test has the following specifications:

  • 25 multiple choice questions
  • Open book
  • 90% correct to pass
  • Should take less than 30 minutes to complete

Test topics include:

  • Following oDesk Policies
  • Getting Hired
  • Working on Assignments

In two weeks, only providers who are oDesk Ready will be able to apply to jobs. Therefore, we highly recommend all providers who are not yet oDesk Ready to take the oDesk Readiness Test before June 4th.
