Lesson 2

Filling Out a Form It is essential that you be able to read forms and use the information that they contain. All too often, your job will require you to fill out forms. The Locating Information WorkKeys test measures your ability to handle this task by providing a blank form and asking you questions about how you should fill it out. Below is an example of a form that might show up on the WorkKeys Locating Information test:

You work for an Internet service provider as a repair specialist. The ticket below is submitted upon each visit to clients.

ABC ISP SERVICE REQUEST TICKET 1. Client Name: 2. Client Number: 3. Client Address: 4. Service Package Type: 5. Monthly Payment: 6. Description of Problem: 7. Problem Resolved: Y/N?

8. Date of Visit: 9. Repair Specialist Name:

(Signature)

The words after each number tell you what each blank line is for. First, you fill in the client name, then the client number. You may ask at that point, “What is a client number?” If it’s an important detail, the test will fill you in when you read the question. Don’t worry if you run across information that doesn’t make sense. What matters is that you keep reading and keep trying to figure it out. Next comes client address, then service package type, then monthly payment. Then you write the description of problem, decide if the problem is resolved (yes or no), and give your date of visit before providing the repair specialist name.
